Chris Cochrane Seen at Printers Row Lit Fest for Book Signing and Showcasing His First Fantastical Children’s Story

With all the books exhibited during the Printers Row Lit Fest 2023, one could definitely expect several book signings. Among them was one by Chris Cochrane, the author of the recently published children’s book “The Dinglehopper Blueberry Belly-Button Snooter.” Cochrane was encouraged to write this book by his wife and friends due to his creative knack for coming up with words. Now, he’s excited to keep pursuing his path as an author by sharing his first book with the public.

“Someone’s been cleaning the kids’ room… and it wasn’t Mom and Dad.”

Earlier this September, the Printers Row Lit Fest was once again the site of many exhibits of new publications as well as several authors holding their book signing session. This included even a recently published children’s book author named Chris Cochrane. With the support of ReadersMagnet, a self-publishing and book marketing firm, Cochrane was able to hold the session just in time for the event.

Cochrane is the creative mind behind The Dinglehopper Blueberry Belly-Button Snooter, a story that showcases both his rich imagination and his talent for making up the funniest made-up words.

Prior to publishing, Cochrane had used this talent to entertain his own children with the funniest stories. One day, however, his wife had begun urging him to go beyond just that and believed that his way with wordplay could be a fun read for more kids.

And thus, the Dinglehopper was born.

Cochrane’s book follows a lighthearted tradition in children’s stories where creatures with peculiar sounding names can be said to be found in hidden places and are responsible for strange things. In the case of the titular Dinglehopper, the story follows two little girls who embark on a search as they notice something has been cleaning their room, no matter how often they forget or how messy things got.

After the Printers Row Lit Fest 2023, Cochrane is still eager to exhibit his book at a number of other book fairs in the future. His imagination still has plenty to share as it draws much inspiration from his love sci-fi, fantasy, sports as well as his own desire to keep telling funny stories to kids.

Chris Cochrane’s The Dinglehopper Blueberry Belly-Button Snooter is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and at

Author’s Biography
Chris Cochrane, an author gifted with an incredibly active imagination, has completed his new book “The Dinglehopper Blueberry Belly-Button Snooter”: a charming story centered around two young sisters who believe a friendly creature has been doing their chores for them, and set off with their dad to thank him for being such a helpful friend.

Fond of nature, sports, and fantasy and sci-fi movies and TV shows, author Chris Cochrane draws his writing inspiration from the world around him but most especially from his family: his wife Stephanie and their four children. A salesman with a bachelor’s degree in business, Chris writes to entertain and amuse and loves inventing weird and wacky words, phrases, and creatures with which to delight his children. At his wife’s suggestion, he began to write his stories down so that other children could enjoy them too.
