Holly Tuesday Baxter

Biography

Holly Tuesday Baxter grew up in her own post-apocalyptic version of Los Angeles, crashing on couches from Hollywood to Venice, Orange County to Chatsworth. When not writing, Holly works with teens (you could call her a shrink) and listens to very loud music. She adores all things magical and mystical, and isn’t usually far from her tarot deck. Holly wrote her first book for her now teenage daughter, but has yet to make enough sense of the male brain to write one for her son. She loves to hear feedback and, just for the record, her middle name really is Tuesday.

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
I read so many genres that it's hard to say. But when I'm in a YA mood I'll seek out Ursula K. Le Guin or Cassandra Clare - I don't really count Suzanne Collins as YA because she's blown that stereotype right out of the water, but since she started there I'll count her too. Outside of that I gravitate towards stark writing that doesn't get mushy - like Cormac McCarthy or Orson Scott Card. And I'll definitely be on the pre-order list for any new Neil Stephenson book (if you haven't read the Diamond Age you absolutely must). In general though, I read anything you put in front of me and absolutely LOVE finding things no one's heard of yet.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The work I do gets me going each and every day. I love to write, but my day job is working with kids and teens through the tough parts of their lives. Being the survivor of some pretty tough stuff myself, I feel a connection with the sometimes battle of growing up and I feel blessed that I am trusted by so many as the keeper of their stories.

Ella Fine has never seen the moon. Her entire life she has been locked inside her home to be safe from the NightKind, unimaginable beasts who screech and howl through the streets of Los Angeles as soon as the sun has fallen out of the sky. But she knows there is something else out there, something that calls to her. And when she answers that call, nothing will ever be the same.

Holly Tuesday Baxter's tag cloud


Smashwords book reviews by Holly Tuesday Baxter

  • Zombie Nights on Feb. 12, 2014

    A fun and breezy read with an original take on the vampire story. Very original idea.
  • The Binding (Chronicles of Azaria #1) on March 08, 2014

    The Binding tells a good story and is a compelling read. It's more of a romance than fantasy, although the world of Azaria is painted vividly and there does appear to be some magic afoot! It's unfortunate that most of the tension for the bulk of the story is based in the main character's dishonesty with each other, which is a plot device that becomes tiresome rather quickly. Dialogue is rich, and the author brings in a refreshing wit that livens up some chapters. In all, an enjoyable book.
  • Glamour (Rae Wilder #1) on March 29, 2014

    A nice depiction of some standard fantasy concepts, but things moved so fast at times that the continuity and character got lost. Fun to read, but not sure I'd spend the time for the next one.
