Kylie Holmes


Kylie Holmes was born in Bedford in October 1970 where she grew up with her parents, younger sister and brother. Kylie always loved writing and as a child, she enjoyed making up stories. This is when her obsession with books began.

Kylie’s favourite author as a child was Roald Dahl. She’s recently discovered fantasy author Neil Gaiman and counts The Graveyard Book as one of her favourites. A self-confessed fan of science fiction she also loves the idea of time travel. This interest stems from her Dad and their shared love of Dr Who.

Dyslexia has proven to be a challenge for Kylie, but then so did learning how to drive! Kylie has worked in all sorts of jobs: barmaid, secretary and tennis coach. She has worked with homeless people, trained as a Hypnotherapist and is a qualified Meditation & Mindfulness Teacher.

Kylie’s favourite jobs include creating children’s books, inspiring children and adults to discover their writing passions and being a Mum to her four children Jade, Amba, Leo and Ruby. When Kylie is not writing, you can find her walking her Border collies Max and Benny around Cambridgeshire, or sampling different types of ice cream and cheesecake.
