J. C. Jeremy Hobson is a freelance writer and author who nowadays resides in Hampshire but, for 14 years previously, had lived in the Western Loire area of France. Whether it be books or magazine articles, his regular subject matter generally appertains to all aspects of rural living and country life, both in the UK and across the Channel.
Jeremy’s current work includes his own column in Countryman’s Weekly and French Property News. Previously he has been part of a regular writing team for Shooting Times, Countrysport, Gamekeeper & Countryside, Farmer’s Weekly, The Landsman, Fancy Fowl, Your Chickens and Smallholder. Commissioned feature pieces include work for Country Smallholding, The Field, Country Life, Fieldsports, Horse & Hound, Shooting & Conservation, Shooting Gazette, the Scottish Opera and several regional newspapers.
His book subjects are many and varied; ranging from dogs to chickens, hunting to shooting, and from smallholding ventures to country cookery. According to independent reviews, Jeremy writes “with great knowledge and wit – he certainly provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and information” and, in addition, “passes on his enthusiasm for any given subject with apparent ease.” Another said; “It is rare that you get an author who has long-standing experience and the ability to make the subject interesting. Some people can write, some can do the job, but few can do both as well as Jeremy Hobson."
Jeremy's writing style has been described as being "smooth... like that evening Macallan" - he, however, considers his style to be 'quirky'!
