Holly was born and raised in a small town in Ohio. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Communication from Walsh University. Holly then moved to Los Angeles where she discovered her love for writing children’s books. The idea for writing her first book came when Holly was given two of her favorite things, a box of chocolate and a pack of socks, which led to the title of her first children’s book, Chocolate Socks.
While living in Los Angeles, Holly met her husband Dr. Blake Julian, who is a dentist in South Carolina. They fell in love quickly and three months later they were engaged and Holly moved to South Carolina.
Holly spends her time visiting elementary schools reading to children and encouraging them to always follow their dreams. She also started a princess party business, Greenville Princess. Her favorite princess to dress up and portray is “Elsa” from the animated Disney film, Frozen. When Holly isn’t traveling around to schools with her books or entertaining children at birthday parties and children’s hospitals, you can find her working at her husband’s dental practice Signature Smiles in Greenville, South Carolina, where she is a dental assistant. In her spare time, Holly enjoys sewing, reading, crafting, swimming and her various modeling jobs.
