Holly Ringland grew up wild and barefoot in her mother’s tropical garden. When she was nine years old, her family lived in a camper van for two years, travelling across the national parks in North America, an experience that sparked Holly’s lifelong interest in cultures and stories. In her twenties, Holly worked for four years in a remote Indigenous community in the central Australian desert. She has an MA in Creative Writing from the University of Manchester, and her essays and short fiction have been published in various anthologies and literary journals. Her debut novel, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, will be published in April 2018 and has sold to 17 territories including the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany and France.
