Holly Bourne


Holly writes YA novels and blogs about feminist issues.  Her favourite things to complain loudly about are: the stigma of mental health, women’s rights and the under-appreciation of Keanu Reeves’ acting ability.


Holly’s first two books, Soulmates and The Manifesto on How to be Interesting, have been critically acclaimed and translated into six languages. The first book in the “Normal” series, Am I Normal Yet? was chosen as a World Book Night book for 2016, and with the next two books in the trilogy How Hard Can Love Be? and What’s A Girl Gotta Do?, Holly inspired the formation of Spinster Clubs across the country and a trending hashtag #IAmAFeminist. The ‘Spinster Novella’ …And A Happy New Year was published in November to complete the series.
