Holly Ringland is the author of the internationally bestselling debut novel, , which has been published in 30 territories. In 2023, a seven-episode TV series adaptation of the same name streamed globally on Prime Video, starring Sigourney Weaver and Alycia Debnam-Carey - it broke records with the biggest opening weekend viewership globally for any Australian launch, reaching the top five in 78 countries, and top 3 in 42 countries. Holly grew up travelling the west coast of the US and Canada in a coffee-and-cream GMC campervan, and has lived in Vancouver both as a girl and young adult. Her fascination with the 'Girl in a Wetsuit' sculpture is as vivid now as it was when she was 9 and riding her ten-speed around Stanley Park. Holly's second novel, , was published in Australia and New Zealand in 2022 and became an instant bestseller. Booktopia named it their 2022 Book of the Year. After living between Australia and the UK for ten years, Holly has been based in the Yugambeh region of southeast Queensland since 2020, where she wrote The Seven Skins of Esther Wilding in her “office,” a vintage caravan named Frenchie. Returning to Vancouver to celebrate the Canadian publication of her second novel is a dream come true.
