Holly grew up in the small town of Dripping Springs, Texas, where she was blessed to live in the country. During many summer days she spent racing her horse bareback, then finding a great shade tree and taking a nap on the back of her horse. Whenever Holly wasn’t riding her horses, or competing in Horse Shows, she was found with pen and paper in hand, writing out the romantic love stories of the wild west.

Holly’s love for writing began from the moment she knew how to put words on paper, and she hasn’t stopped since. Having found true love in her own life, Romance has always been a passion for her.

When Holly moved to San Antonio to be closer to her husband’s family, she had the unique opportunity to work in an old building that was close to the Alamo. This location actually had basements and underground tunnels connecting the buildings. The exciting history of Texas and the Alamo and being able to work in a historic building dating back to the 1800’s inspired Holly to write about the Texas Revolution, and has evolved into a series all about Texas becoming the great State it is.

Today, Holly finds herself quite content at home nestled in a small community just south of San Antonio, with her husband and two children. On the family’s 80 acre ranch, surrounded by cattle during the day and the howling of coyotes by night, Holly has endless inspiration for her writing.

Her first book, Texas Conquest, is out now.
