In addition to teaching at Oklahoma State, the University of Kansas, and Johnson County Community College before coming to Tech, Dr. Hoffman worked as a technical writer and editor for the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Her novel The Getaway Girl opens with the following passage.
This would be the seventh summer without her. When Jill left, Andy Quinn had been
young, exactly seventeen days from his twenty-third birthday. The young were supposed
to be resilient. That was the whole point of youth as he understood it, yet something
in him was defective and he had not been able to do it. Move on. Get over it.
She received the Individual Artist Grant from the Arkansas Arts Council for novel writing in 2013.
