Holly studied Icelandic at University College London and the University of Iceland. She now lives on the West Coast of Scotland with her husband and two children.
Holly considers landscape, wilderness and interaction with the elements to be the driving force behind her writing, a passion which has taken her to Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.
Conceived during a visit to the Faroe Islands, her debut literary novel looks at friendship, loss and social change. It is set in the bleak wilderness of those islands during the second world war.
Her novel "The Eagle and The Oystercatcher" will be launched at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival at St Andrews and St Georges West on 23rd August 2016
