Hi! I'm Deb Hockenberry. I have always wanted to write for children since I was a child myself! I've been published twice on the internet. I've written a story for children about Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis for an online newsletter. I currently am working on several things including a picture book, a middle grade book, and a young adult book.


Background Information

I really don't know what got me into storytelling or writing.  I remember telling the neighborhood children along with my siblings stories when I was a child. 

I had been trying to get published for years.  Then I read 'Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets'.  I noticed how J.K. Rowling brought her characters to life through description.  So, I studied her...not to plaigerize but just to learn.  It was then I started getting published.

I've been published twice on the 'net.  One story was on WritersHood.com which unfortunately has gone under.  That was a nice site too!  The other was on bedtime.com.  I waited the requisite year and wrote the publisher a letter.  I politely asked him to take my story down so I could place it elsewhere.

I've just gotten into the world of book reviewing and I really love it!  I hope to do more but I won't review erotica.

I'm a member of the Society of Children's Book Writer's and Illustrators.

Accomplishments

I have taken two courses from the Institute of Children's Literature. I've also taken courses from The E-writer's Place and am a member of the Society of Children's Book Writer's and Illustrators. I have also attended the 2008 Muse Online Writers Conference.

Additional Information

I have written an encouraging story for children who have Pediatric MS. I've also just signed a contract for my first picture book!
