Holley Trent


Holley Trent is a Carolina girl gone west. Raised in rural coastal North Carolina, Holley Trent has Southern sensibilities, but in 2011 her adventurous spirit drove her to Colorado for new experiences.

She writes sassy, quirky contemporary romances and fantasy/paranormal romances set in her home state.

Her protagonists regularly fall victim to her odd sense of humor and find themselves in improbable situations (with happily-every-after outcomes). Holley's cast of characters tends to swear, drink and do a fair amount of carousing, but they're generally well-intentioned and obey all laws and ordinances.


Her work is available from Calliope Romance/Musa Publishing, Crimson Romance, and Lyrical Press.

When she has a bit of free time, she self-publishes cross-genre stories ranging from romantic chick-lit to spicy paranormal/romantic suspense.
