Writing One Page at a Time
JF Holland still lives in the small town in Manchester, UK, where she was born at home on January 10th 1968. She was raised and attended school here. Now a wife and mother, she lives with her husband and 6 children, and a small menagerie of animals.
She has always loved the underdog, the fighter. But let’s face it, we all want to believe in a happily ever after. As a huge fan of books (book nerd is the endearing term, her children use), she has an immense romance collection which also includes paranormal romance. If she is not writing, she has her head stuck in a good book.
“You can’t beat reading, watching the plot and characters come to life in your imagination. It’s so much better than television. When I was younger, I tended to re-write books and fairy-tales where I wasn’t completely happy with the ending. It confused the hell out of my children once they learned to read. None of the books matched the stories I’d read them growing up.” – JF Holland
She has had a varied career including Admin, Customer Service, and Teaching unemployed adults IT and customer service skills. Until she became ill a few years ago, and she is now at home full time, classed as disabled (neuro fog can make life, and writing fun and challenging at times). So instead of feeling sorry for herself, she decided it was time she started to do something she love with her life. She began to write her own stories, it keeps her mind active and is fun.
