Welcome to the website of author, broadcaster and financial writer Rodney Hobson.

After several years of publishing investment books I have branched out into crime writing and my series of Inspector Paul Amos murder mysteries have been published as ebooks by Endeavour Press. You can read about them in the Books section.

You can read about my wide experience covering financial, economic and investment issues in the UK and Asia by clicking on About Rodney Hobson.

Details of my successful book on stockmarket investing for beginners, Shares Made Simple, can be found in the Books section. The first edition was reprinted four times and I have written a fully revised second edition with updated information and a range of new case studies. Harriman House, the largest firm of financial publishers in the UK, asked me to write more books and I have now produced five, two of which have been published in a special version for the Indian Subcontinent.

My latest book is The Book of Scams, published by Harriman House. It describes the types of scams perpetrated on the public, how to spot the tell-tale signs and how to avoid becoming the next victim.

I am a frequent contributor to Share Radio, the new radio station covering finance and investment. Or follow me on Twitter @rodneyhobson.

I still write a weekly commentary on stockmarkets, the economy and investment news for the financial news website Morningstar. Find out what I have to say on this link:

I have participated in several investment shows and I run a seminar for less experienced investors every year at the London Investor Show at Olympia, London. I lecture on Fred Olsen cruises and I am available for public speaking.
