Holly Durst was born and raised in a small town in Ohio. She graduated with a Bachelors degree in Communication from Walsh University. Holly then moved to Los Angeles where she discovered her love for writing childrens books. Her two favorite things are chocolate and socks. The idea for writing her first book came when Holly was given a gift of a box of chocolate and a pack of socks. The idea is priceless!
While living in Los Angeles, Holly managed a high end clothing boutique in Beverly Hills for five years. It was there, where she was spotted and asked to be on ABC’s hit show ‘The Bachelor.’ Three years after her unsuccessful quest for love on television, Holly was asked to come back for season two of ‘Bachelor Pad.’ This venture was a lot more successful than the last.
Bachelor Pad is a competition show competing for love and money. On the show she met Blake Julian, a previous contestant on ‘The Bachelorette.’ They started dating after the show and by the finale, they were engaged. The engagement wasn’t the only big thing to happen to Holly on the show; she won! Holly walked away with $125,000 and the love of her life!
Holly currently resides in Greenville, South Carolina. Blake has a dental practice here so she happily moved across the country to be with him. Holly gives all her praise to God for His many blessings in her life.
