William Arthur Holmes


Originally from Sacramento, California, I have been calling Nashville, Tennessee home for the past twenty years. I am married, with a young daughter, an old pug, and one cat.

My stories are often inspired by my greatest fears and/or frustrations. Writing things down in a safely fictionalized way helps me to understand myself and the world around me.

My other titles are Lottery President, Operation Detour, and Temporary Insanity.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
Inspired by our own true adoption story, but completely fictionalized, futurized, twisted and perverted for your entertainment. I hope by the end, your bloodlust is sated. OK, it’s not quite that obscene, though it is does reflect my fear of everything that could go wrong when taking a willful child back to her “homeland.”
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I like having control and doing things myself.

Clay and his adopted daughter, Jenna, look forward to their upcoming “homeland tour” to Russia. His intentions are pure. Hers, not so much. When she goes missing, his worst fears are realized. She is not the innocent little girl he thought she was. Not even close. Their only hope now, with or without her approval, is to catch the Last Train Out.
