Holly O. Hale

Holly O. Hale truly believes in the words of John Donne: no man is an island. That said, her favorite thing to do is hole up by herself in her study and write about other people being together. She does love people at her table, however, and has been known to spend days preparing a from-scratch feast for her friends. Holly also enjoys spending what little time her almost-grown son will allow her taking care of him, and visiting her mom and getting fur time with her mom's dog. Aside from her family, friends, and readers, Holly loves three things most in the world: laughter, peace and quiet, and early bedtime—in exactly the opposite order. Find Holly on Twitter @HollyOHale.
