Holly started her writing career as a news journalist, where she was nominated for Best Print Journalist of the Year. She then spent six years working as an editor, a relationship advisor, and general ‘agony aunt’ for a youth charity – helping young people with their relationships and mental health. Inspired by what she saw, Holly started writing teen fiction, including the best-selling, award-winning ‘Spinster Club’ series which helps educate teenagers about feminism. When she turned thirty, Holly wrote her first adult novel, examining the intensified pressures on women once they hit that landmark.
Alongside her writing, she have a keen interest in women’s rights and is an advocate for reducing the stigma of mental health problems. Holly has helped to create online apps that teach young people about sexual consent, work with Women’s Aid to spread awareness of abusive relationships, and run Rethink’s mental health book club.
Holly lives in London, but dreams of the day she can have a garden, dog, chickens, and a bee hive.
