Terry Holland


Look at that face. Look at this space. Biography? There isn't enough room. Try this.
I write and I publish.
The writing is novels, fiction, the adventures of a man named Harry Pines. He's an ex-con, former Army Ranger, who now lives in Hawaii in better circumstances than you'd expect from a "squared-up ex-con." Harry keeps himself on call for friends in need. He's very capable and very difficult. I think you'll like him.
Two of his stories are out there in the marketplace: An Ice Cold Paradise and its chronological successor Chicago Shiver. You can read all about them at my web site www.terryholland.info and, while you're there, you can find out where and how to get a copy.
The publishing I do is of my own work. It's about control and profit. If i have more of the first I gain more of the second. I also plan to help people I like to get their own work published. I call the publishing activity Holland: A Publisher and I'm building a web site at www.hollandapublisher.info to explain it all. If you get to the web site and find it incomplete, just contact me through the terryholland.info link.
