The architecture, the history, the ever-present air of romance, not to mention the food, never fails to thrill and enthrall me. Paris is entirely to blame/credit for Postcard From Paris.
[ Holly writes ….. ]
My name is Holly Willow and I’m a writer… that sounds like a confession, doesn’t it?
First things first: Mairead, thank you so much for welcoming me to your corner of the world wide web. As a fairly new and self-published writer, I need all the help I can get spreading the word about my books.
As a child, I loved books, especially the ones that ended with the promise of a happily ever after. Escaping into magical worlds far from reality was my favorite pastime. That didn’t change when I grew up. Books and the characters in them have been some of my best friends for as long as I can remember. And I’ve been writing stories since I was nine years old. But I didn’t publish any of them until last year.
I have two great passions in life – writing and traveling. Thanks to my parents, I grew up on the move, bouncing from one country to the next. I’ve lived in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and the West Indies. I have an insatiable wanderlust, a deep desire to see more of the world and experience all it has to offer. And I tend to write stories set in places that I have been to or would like to visit one day.
More About Postcard From Paris
Postcard From Paris was the first full-length novel I wrote. As the title so obviously implies, the story takes place in Paris. My mother took me to Paris for the first time when I was five years old. I’ve been irrevocably in love with the city ever since that first visit. The architecture, the history, the ever-present air of romance, not to mention the food, never fails to thrill and enthrall me. Paris is entirely to blame/credit for Postcard From Paris.
The main character in the story, Boston born and bred Poppy Parker, thinks she knows exactly where her life is going because she has it all meticulously planned out. But she gets thrown for a loop when the promotion she has been promised for two years is suddenly given to someone else. Meanwhile, her fiancé accepts a job offer in Hong Kong without consulting her and postpones their wedding. So when she finds a postcard from Paris with a message written by an aunt she has never heard of, she can’t think of a reason to not book a seat on the next flight to France.
Poppy has worn the dutiful daughter and supportive sister hat for as long as she can remember, the loyal employee hat for her entire professional career, and the patient fiancée hat since she started dating the man she is supposed to marry, a man who is already married to his job. It’s time for her to try some new hats on for size. In the process, she uncovers long-buried family secrets and a chance at true love if she is brave enough to take it.
Throughout March and April 2019, Postcard From Paris will be available to purchase for $/£ 0.99 ~ Purchase Link

Falling in love with your boss is never a good idea and she knows it. But when he makes her an offer she can’t refuse, her heart just might win the battle against reason and logic.
