Holly Ringland told her mum she wanted to be a writer when she was three years old. When she was thirty-seven years old, she became an author: Holly’s first novel, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart debuted on the Australian bestseller chart and has become an international bestseller. Publication rights have sold in 30 territories and a global television series adaptation is underway, from Bruna Papandrea’s production company Made Up Stories.
In 2019, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart won The Australian Book Industry Award General Fiction Book of the Year. In 2020, Holly travelled Australia to film Back to Nature, a visually stunning factual series she co-hosted with Aaron Pedersen, which will air on ABC TV in the second half of 2021.
Her second novel, The Seven Skins of Esther Wilding, will be published by HarperCollins in 2022.
