Hoffman's first novel, Property Of, has been written at the age of twenty five, while she had been studying at Stanford, and released shortly afterwards by Farrar Straus and Giroux. She's her mentor, professor and author Albert J. Guerard, along with his wife, the writer Maclin Bocock Guerard, for helping her to publish her first short story from the magazine Fiction. Editor Ted Solotaroff subsequently contacted her to ask if she had a novel, at which point she immediately began to write what was to become Property Of, a part of which had been published in Mr. Solotaroff's magazine, American Review.
