Hock Hochheim is the author of westerns, thrillers, true-crime, police action adventures and combatives books. He’s an award-winning fiction, non-fiction, a military, police and martial arts veteran. He is published by the great Wolfpack Publishing, Lauric Press and GMBH Germany. Hock tours internationally doing book events and teaching hand, stick, knife and gun defensive tactics to military, police and civilians in some 9 to 11 allied countries annually (but now barring Covid!).
Hock’s books are based on his deep research, extensive knowledge and experience with crime, criminal minds and real-life experience. He’s served in U.S. Army law enforcement as a patrolman and investigator in the 70’s, then settled down to fight crime as a detective in the Dallas-Ft Worth metro area, Texas for decades. Later, Hock even served as a private investigator and bodyguard.
In 1998, Hock launched, and was editor-in-chief of, Close Quarter Combat Magazine, a publication sold in 26 countries for 5 years, and a publication that became the bedrock of many self-defense, “martialist,” and combatives organizations that are still growing and flourishing today. This is still somewhat of an old cult magazine and collectors still ask for old issues.
Throughout his career he’s been a prolific writer, storyteller and educator. He has an uncanny ability to teach, entertain and enlighten both in person and in his books. The characters in his fiction are composites of situations and personalities he’s actually been-and-done, known of, or researched extensively. These stories play themselves out with great detail, humanity and accuracy.
Hock has sold more over 55,000 books in some 27 countries from 1979 to date, in with both the award-winning, My Gun is my Passport, Jack Kellog’s first crime fighting adventure, Be Bad Now and the true crime collection-omnibus, KiIl or be Killed appearing at times in the top 100 Amazon book list in their categories versus millions of titles. Hock continues to write fiction and non-fiction as he continues to tour teaching. Here is his latest…
