Holly Kammier is the international best-selling author of Kingston Court and Choosing Hope. Of her latest, Lost Girl, a cross-over title with overlapping characters and locations from the first two books, New York Times bestseller Caroline Mitchell raves, “[A] compulsive thrill-ride that reads as if it’s been pulled straight from the headlines. Kammier’s journalism background brings undeniable authenticity to a novel that has it all–a love story, a murder mystery, and a real-life introduction into the distinctive world of television news.” A UCLA honors graduate and former journalist who has worked everywhere from CNN in Washington, D.C. and KCOP-TV in Los Angeles, to an NBC affiliate in small-town Medford, Oregon, along with novelist Jessica Therrien, Holly is the co-founder of Acorn Publishing, a new-model hybrid press enabling quality authors to publish independently under a single imprint.
