Holly J. Martin - Small Town, Coming of Age Romance
FEATURED AUTHOR - Holly J. Martin’s mother always told her she was in love with love. And guess what, she was right! After all, what is more, exciting than a crush? When Holly isn’t writing steamy, crush-worthy romance novels, she can be found running (she has several marathons under her belt), reading steamy romances (of course), enjoying a glass of wine with her husband (always her favorite crush), or binging on Netflix. As our Author of the Day, she tells us about her book, Princess.
