About Holly


Bio

I love writing and the creative life that goes with it. I enjoy all types - nonfiction, fiction, screenplays. I help people through the writing process, be it the beginning, middle or end. I enjoy assisting writers as they work through plot and arc issues, timing, character, etc. And after navigating the publishing process from querying agents to signing with an agent and then publication with HarperCollins, I have much to share about what I've learned.

I love writing and the creative life that goes with it. I enjoy all types - nonfiction, fiction, screenplays. I help people through the writing process, be it the beginning, middle or end. I enjoy assisting writers as they work through plot and arc issues, timing, character, etc. And after navigating the publishing process from querying agents to signing with an agent and then publication with HarperCollins, I have much to share about what I've learned.

I published my debut novel with HarperCollins in 2015, was a screenwriting finalist in a Massachusetts Film Office competition, a novel-in-progress finalist for Words & Music Competition, and published a short story in MEETINGHOUSE. In addition, I blog about parenting and contribute to sites such as Scary Mommy.

I have a degree in Broadcasting & Film from BU. I've taken several classes at GrubStreet, a nationally recognized writing organization, from short fiction and flash fiction, to beginner novel and novel-in-progress. I’ve attended seminars in query writing and workshops on character, voice and outlining novels. I have been a member of a writing critique group for more than ten years.

Writing fuels me. I enjoy editing and helping others achieve their goals. The process of publishing a novel can be daunting, but I have successfully navigated it and I love sharing what I've learned.

I help students at all points of writing a project. You may need help getting an idea off the ground, to shape it and flesh it out. Perhaps you're stuck mid-draft. Or maybe you're nearing the end. In any of these situations, I can help.

Contact me if you're looking to make writing an important part of your life, or if you already have made that commitment but are encountering issues on the way to finishing a project. I look forward to hearing from you!
