Holly was born and raised in a small town in North Georgia. The third of four children, Holly grew up telling stories to get herself out of—and her siblings into—trouble. When she was eight years old, she penned her first publication: a newspaper called Sunny Dayz News. While she didn’t sell any actual copies, her sympathetic grandmother did peruse through the edition at least once.

When Holly isn’t dreaming up new plotlines for her next book, she enjoys breakfasting at Picnic Café in Dahlonega, Georgia with her (handsome) husband and their two (adorable) daughters.

What people are saying...

"As a fan of Holly Lauren's debut novel, Tempus, I eagerly anticipated this sequel. It did not disappoint! Holly has crafted a compelling, intricately detailed storyline with characters that kept me reading as fast as I could in order to discover more about them.

The trust theme woven throughout is an important piece of the storyline too, and not added on to infuse this tale with some sort of moral. Holly knows that giving, receiving, and earning trust are essential life lessons. She has crafted a very creative story as her vehicle, and I can't wait for book 3!!"
