Nancy Holder was born in Los Altos, California, and her family settled for a time in Walnut Creek. Her father, who taught at Stanford, joined the navy and the family traveled throughout California and lived in Japan for three years. A famous schoolmate is Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame. When she was sixteen, she dropped out of high school to become a ballet dancer in Cologne, Germany, and later relocated to Frankfurt Am Main.
Eventually she returned to California and graduated summa cum laude from the University of California at San Diego with a degree in Communications. Soon after, she began to write; her first sale was a young adult romance novel titled Teach Me to Love.
She lives in San Diego, California, with her daughter Belle; their cats David and Kittnen Snow; and their hermit crabs, Athena, Vietnam, Kiwii, and Mr. Crabbypants. She has no spare time.
Nancy’s work has appeared on the USA Today, LA Times, amazon.com, Waldenbooks, LOCUS, and other bestseller lists. A four-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award from the Horror Writers Association, she has also received accolades from the American Library Association, the American Reading Association, the New York Public Library, and Romantic Times.
She has sold approximately seven dozen book-length projects, many of them set in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Smallville universes. WICKED, her series for Simon and Schuster, was co-authored with her former Maui Writers Retreat student, Debbie Viguie. It has been reissued in two volumes through an exclusive deal with Barnes and Noble. THE ROSE BRIDE: A RETELLING OF THE FAIRY TALE “THE WHITE BRIDE AND THE BLACK BRIDE” is a young adult fantasy available from Simon and Schuster in the summer of 2007. She has also sold approximately two hundred short stories, essays, and articles, mostly recently to DARK DELICACIES and BTVS: Tales of the Slayer 4. Her anthology, OUTSIDERS, co-edited with Nancy Kilpatrick, was nominated for the Bram Stoker Award in 2005.
