Martin lives in sunny Bedfordshire in a house with round windows. She studied media at university which led to a very glitzy career as a hotel receptionist followed by a even more glamorous two years working in a bank. The moment that one of her colleagues received the much coveted carriage clock for fifteen years service was the moment when she knew she had to escape. Martin quit her job and returned to university to train to be a teacher. Three years later, she emerged wide eyed and terrified that she now had responsibility for the development of thirty young minds. Holly taught for four years before History Off The Page came to her school to do a Tudor day. She now drives round the country in her little white van, dressing up as a Viking one day and an Egyptian High Priestess the next.
Martin loves to write. In her own words: “The characters do exactly what I want them to do, most of the time. Sometimes they do seem to go off and do their own thing without my permission. It is complete escapism into a world where I have full control.”
She’s been writing for five years now, every spare second Martin has, she’s scribbling ideas in a notebook or typing a scene on her laptop.
