Profile: Ian Hobson

About This Author

Born in 1951, in the tiny hamlet of Hogs-Bonking on the south-west coast of Corset, in England, best-selling author and pig farmer, Ian Hobson, is relatively new to writing, having taken it up only the day before yesterday. His many literary achievements to date include his remarkable 500,000 word epic 'A Day in the Life of a Lettuce', his anthology of single word poems titled 'This is an Anthology of Single Word Poems and That's Why it's Not Very Thick', and 'Mistaken Identity', the heart-rending true story about his father's hysterectomy. His latest novel 'The Day I Killed Mr Smith', is causing a sensation in literary circles, as well as looking likely to reopen the investigation into the death of one Josiah Smith, one-time Mayor of Hogs-Bonking and Crouchdown-in-the Marshes, who died in suspicious circumstances; his body having been found shot, stabbed, garrotted, and hanging upside-down in his outside toilet. Ian has now moved to Florida, where he lives with his wife and two pigs. He still loves to write but now devotes most of his time to the cataloguing of his rare Antarctic cockroach collection. P.S. He has also written children's stories, under the name of Ian G Hobson.
