JF Holland was born at home, in January 1968 in a small town on the border of Manchester and Cheshire in the UK. She joined the RNA at the tail end of 2017.
Now a wife and mother of 6 children, she lives a fairly quiet life with her family and a small menagerie of animals in the same small town she was born and raised.
Her passion has always been reading, so when she’s not making up her own stories, she can usually be found with her head stuck in a good book.
She’s always preferred reading to television.
“You can’t beat curling up with a book and allowing your imagination free rein as you envision the plot and characters coming to life in your mind… my own internal television screen.”
After a few years of illness, and a varied career in everything from retail to teaching unemployed adults, she decided it was time to do something she loved with her life…. That was when she began writing her own stories again. It was something she’d always done but now, instead of just in her head, they’re in print.
“I’ve always loved the underdog, the fighter and the lengths people will go to in the name of ‘love’ fascinates me… but let’s face it, we all want to believe in ‘The happily ever after.”
