Holly Flynn is the daughter of bestselling saga writer Judy Turner, who wrote as Katie Flynn and sadly passed away in January 2019. Holly worked with her mother as an assistant for several years and, for the first time, joined her mother in co-authoring the Katie Flynn novels with the publication of Christmas at Tuppenny Corner (Arrow) in 2018.
In A Christmas Gift (Arrow, October 2019) 16-year old Lizzy finally returns home after fleeing her violent stepfather to find her home deserted, her beloved mother gone. Lizzy is desperate to find out what happened - but it's 1939 and with war raging, her life is taken in unexpected directions and gradually her hope of a reunion begins to fade. If Lizzy can muster the strength to keep searching, she might just get her Christmas wish after all.
Holly lives in the North West with her husband Simon and their two children. When not writing she enjoys walking her two lurchers Sparky and Snoopy in the surrounding countryside, as well as cooking forbidden foods such as pies, cakes and delicious puddings!
