About Holly

If my writing were a song, it would be Thomas Dolby's "She Blinded Me With Science." If you've never heard of that song, you're probably much younger than me.

My love for science and music always informs and influences my writing. After completing a Ph.D. in Chemistry at the University of Texas at Austin in 1996, I worked as an Analytical Chemist in pharmaceutical and agricultural chemical companies. I play piano, and more recently, I have taken up guitar and songwriting.

I enjoy writing crime dramas, and I am interested in strong female characters, family secrets, moral dilemmas, and forensic science. If you are a director or producer considering my screenplays, I want you to take my crude painting and turn it into your masterpiece. My script is only the beginning. I’m here to help you achieve your vision on the screen.

You can visit my web page for my essays about science, music, spirituality, and the writer's journey. I also have pitch decks for my screenplay projects and resources for writers posted there.
