Brief bio follows. See links below for more information
Holly Lorincz grew up on the Columbia River and now lives on the north Oregon coast. She can’t seem to get away from water. She taught high school language arts for 15 years at Neah-Kah-Nie High School while at the same time coaching an award winning speech & debate team. She was the Oregon Speech Educator of the year in 2007 and has twice received Outstanding Educator awards from the National Federation Of High Schools. She helped the speech team grow from zero to forty in a school with only 200 students, achieved three State Championships with seven of her competitors earning individual State Champion trophies, and served on the Speech State Committee for ten years. Somewhere in there, she was lucky enough to trick an amazing man into creating an uber-funny baby boy with her — and occasionally cook dinner.
A few years ago, Holly was forced to step off the gerbil wheel when she contracted the Epstein Barr Virus. She hugged her bed and wrote a novel, occasionally teaching a college writing class. But now she’s back in the game, full time. She’s got her first book on the market, a second in the works, still teaches college writing courses, and owns her own business: Lorincz Literary Services.
Even more exciting, she’s working with the MacGregor Literary Agency. She met the president, Chip MacGregor, when he signed on as her agent. Because he’s a genius, he also took her on as a consultant and assistant. Then, because he’s a super-duper genius, he made her a literary agent with his company.
