More About the Author


Diana Hockley lives in a small Queensland country town, with her husband, Andrew and seven pet rats. They have three adult children and three grandchildren. The couple do a lot of community volunteer work.

Diana is a dedicated reader, and produces and presents a weekly classical radio program on community radio. She and her husband once owned a mouse circus which travelled throughout Queensland and northern New South Wales.The Hockleys bred Scottish Highland cattle until their retirement.

The Hockleys are very supportive of animal welfare organisations such as SPANA, World Wildlife Fund, Animals Asia, PETA, Animals Rahat (Indian arm of Peta)the RSPCA and the Animal Welfare League. Diana is one of three people who comprise Brisbane Rat Rescue.

Diana has written and published a large number of short stories and articles. Her work has been published in Australia, the UK and USA. She edits, writes and reviews for the Californian online magazine, Kings River Life. Diana also Beta reads occasionally.

Her first novel, The Naked Room, was published in 2010.

Diana says, "The premise for Naked Room came about while I was presenting Thursday Night Concert. The question occurred to me - what would happen if a classical concert pianist didn't turn up for a major concert? There would have to be a darned good reason, so I set myself out to invent one!"

Her next crime novel, The Celibate Mouse, was developed during the last year of writing The Naked Room and both are available on Amazon USA, Canada, UK, Europe and worldwide in e-book and paperback for kindle apps.

In 2008, the Hockleys visited Tasmania and while there, attended the Tasman Cup Working Sheepdog Championship. During the proceedings, Diana realised that a competitor would make a good target when he stood at the last pen. Hence the first line of The Celibate Mouse:

"There is no mistaking the crack of a high-powered rifle."

Things go downhill from there!

I have a five-year-old grandson that loves to listen to me reading him a story. I thought Snoz the pet rat was a naughty character, the kind my grandson would love to hear about and I cannot wait to read it to him on his next visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snoz The Lovable Rat 15 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Snoz the lovable rat gets up to all sorts. A delightful story of the world in ratland.

Ideal Christmas story with lots of mischief by Snoz.

Would like to see what Snoz's world looks like in pictures and that would be the icing on the Christmas cake for children too.

Well done Diana - keep up the good work

Well there is a pet rat scurrying on Christmas day. He is just having a bit of ratty fun when things keep going wrong for some reason.

Very short story, but it is fun. The author is clearly an animal person and does a fine job of seeing things from the point of view of Snoz, the pet rat.

This was an adorable story that was a quick read. Made me miss my rats SO badly! They're such fun little critters.
This is my first Diana Hockley story- but I have been itching to read more.
Definitely a good read for both adults and children. Would recommend if you need some light-hearted reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect short story for the small animal lover. 20 Dec 2013

If you have rats, you can just picture this little fella during his adventure. As a fellow rat owner, I had to smile at the antics with the personality portrayed here. I can just picture my pet rat, Rhodie, doing the same thing! I must also add that Diana Hickory is an interesting & kind person. I came to her writings via a rescue organization to which she donated her book, The Celibate mouse, for a fundraising auction which I won.
