**Upcoming** **Events**

Nothing has been set up for the near future, given the limited availability of locations for presentations and gatherings. A schedule for 2023 is in the process of being researched and arranged, with a few possibilities closing in on being finalized. Stay safe, take care, and stay tuned!


Bob Hocking - Author

Author, speaker, good listener, and always trying for just a bit more. With several published efforts currently in print, this is the area of the web site to check out if you are interested in Bob's books, appearances and other corners of his professional work.



Since the first days back in 2003, the In My Backpack web site has grown into a bit of a community. Here you can find general writing from Bob... the monthly Now Playing journal... ComplemenTerry Designs... Local Friends for Local Business... and more.
