Holly was born in 1974, grew up in Cornwall by the sea and spent most of her childhood exploring rock pools. After completing a degree in Fashion Design in Nottingham she went to live and work in London for ten years. Finding office life uninspiring and, in truth, rather dull, she took the leap and moved to Bristol to work with 3-year-olds in a private school. This is where she discovered her passion for children’s books. She now lives in Plymouth with her partner and two gorgeous boys; her chickens Dolly and Maud; and their blind cat Maisey. She likes, amongst other things, pickled eggs, exploring Dartmoor with her boys, Prosecco Fridays, and sucking her thumb. She HATES coriander.
