PRESS/REVIEWS

“A spectacular new talent. Holly Kennedy writes with compassion and authenticity about the things that
matter most."

 

SUSAN WIGGS

"The Penny Tree is a heartwarming exploration
of one family's journey through tragedy, an ultimately redemptive
story that reminds us that second chances are always possible, if only we'll
have the courage
to start again."

"Poignant, powerful, compelling. Readers are singing the praises of Holly Kennedy, a captivating new voice in popular fiction."
 

THE LITERARY GUILD

The Tin Box is a rare jewel. Tommy is a character that will stay
in my  heart forever;
he is wise, guileless,
and heroic. And he manages to make those around him the same."

BIO

Holly was born and raised
in Alberta, Canada. 

 

Prior to publishing her first

novel, she worked as a long-distance operator, receptionist, travel coordinator, a sales rep, marketing manager, and a branch manager for a national computer training company. It wasn’t until after she married and had kids that she decided to chase her dream of becoming a novelist.

Holly's debut novel, The Tin Box, began as a short story she workshopped at Francis Ford Coppola’s Zoetrope Writers Workshop in Belize. It has now
been published in six languages. Her second novel,
The Penny Tree, was published not long after that and The Silver Compass followed. 

 

Today, Holly lives in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with her family and their Newfoundland dog, Wilson.
