Thanks for stopping by One Hip Lit Chick!
This website contains basic information about me – Marysue G Hobika – my books, and my writings. I have always loved books and writing, so one day I decided it was time I sat down and wrote one of my own. Currently I am writing my third novel.
I dedicated my book “Nowhere” in loving memory of my mother, Shirley Goodburlet. She is no longer with me, but I know my accomplishment would make her proud. I owe my early writing career to my mother. How so, you ask. Well, it’s a typical teenage story…
One day as she was dropping me off at school I told her how I had written a poem for the Memorial Day Essay Contest that my town held every year, and I was only just remembering that the deadline was that day. And it had to be typed, which of course I also had forgotten. It was 1990, and we were still in the dark ages when it came to technology, so we didn’t even own a computer or a printer back then. I remember my mom sighing and holding out her hand. She typed it at work and dropped it off at school for me. And guess what? I won! I won first place and the prize was a $100. Thanks to my mom, my writing career was off to a great start. Two decades later, my first book was published.
