Her award-winning, bestselling debut novel, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, has been published in 31 countries/territories and will stream globally in 2023 as a seven-part series on Amazon Prime, starring Sigourney Weaver. In May 2019, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart won The Australian Book Industry Award General Fiction Book of the Year.

In February 2020, Holly signed a new two-book deal with HarperCollins Publishers Australia. Her second novel, The Seven Skins of Esther Wilding has just been published and is a stunning second novel of myth and magic and sisterly love.

Throughout 2020, Holly travelled Australia to film Back To Nature, a visually stunning 8-episode series she co-hosted with Aaron Pedersen. Back To Nature aired to critical acclaim on ABC TV in 2021. All episodes are now streaming on ABC iView. Prior to the pandemic, Holly divided her time between Australia and the UK, where she had Australian native flowers growing in both places. In 2020 she bought a 1968 Olympic Riviera caravan, named ‘Frenchie’, her Plan B writing office based on Yugambeh land, southeast Queensland, in which Holly wrote Esther Wilding’s story.
