Lina Holloway has recently published her book, I Know This of Myself, with the assistance of Leafless Press. She started writing poems and short stories at a young age. She always dreamed of writing a novel one day and she finally made that dream a reality.
Lina's publishing debut came in the form of a poem she wrote for a college creative writing class. The professor submitted the poem to the campus literary journal and it was accepted for publication. This helped Lina to overcome the fear she had of sharing her writing and was a pivotal point in the decision making process which led to publishing I Know This of Myself.
Lina attended Baylor University, where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science. She loves her alma mater and you cannot talk to her during football season without hearing about the Bears. You can be sure that she is watching them every Saturday during the season and rooting them on as they make a run for a playoff spot.
Lina lives in Houston, Texas with her husband and their beloved animals. They have two dogs, Koki and Kotin, and two cats, Bilye and Henri. Their love for animals extends beyond the ones they consider their own. They are currently fostering a small kitten for the Montgomery County Animal Shelter and hope to find him a forever home soon. They also support the aniMeals on Wheels program in Houston which delivers pet food to elderly and home bound seniors.
When Lina is not writing, she indulges in zombie movies and The Walking Dead. She considers herself an amateur prepper and likes to imagine how she would survive a zombie apocalypse. Her and her husband also love music festivals and try to attend as many as possible. Last year, they followed one of their favorite bands around the festival circuit, attending eight shows, all across the county, including Louisville, KY. Lina's time in Louisville left an impression and became the setting for her current book.
