I am thrilled to welcome Holly to the blog with an author interview!
Full Name? Holly Tierney-Bedord
Do you write under your real name or is this a pen name you use?
This is my real name.
Where are you from?
List 3 interesting facts about yourself.
I’ve been a vegetarian since I was twelve. I’ve travelled to over twenty countries and over forty US states. I have a blog about the dollhouse I restored called Flip This (Mini) House.
What was the first thing you ever had published?
The very first thing was a poem in my school newspaper when I was six or seven years old. My first book was my novel Coached, which I self-published in 2011.
Do you have a writing routine?
Write whenever you don’t know what else to do. Keep the television off and don’t play online games. If I’m lucky, I write about five days a week.
Do you have any writing rituals?
Where did the idea for your most recent book come from?
My book Boots on the Ground, which just came out, was inspired by my husband’s love of professional wrestling. It’s always on at our house when he’s home. If, ten years ago, someone had told me one day I’d write a wrestling themed romance novella I never would have believed them.
Who was the first person you shared your book with?
I’m not sure. Probably a friend or my mom.
Do you have a current work in progress?
I’ve got a few books going right now. Once has been a work in progress for about three years. It’s inspired by my love of old houses and ghost stories. Another I just started is about a young woman who becomes the spokesperson for a chain of coffee shops. I’m not sure what inspired that one.
Do you have any advice for budding authors?
I think with any talent, it helps to develop it when you’re young. If you’re a kid who sits in her room writing poetry you’re off to a good start. However, it’s never too late to do what you want to do. Make the time for it and don’t be afraid that you have to be perfect.

Boots on the Ground:
As the owner of the world's largest professional wrestling establishment, Lucille Boots doesn't have time for dating. She's too busy keeping her wrestlers happy, getting choke-slammed on national television, and spending time with her college-aged daughter to worry about something as tedious as romance.
When her ex-husband sets out to recapture the empire he helped build, Lucille's life goes from hectic to haywire. The only bright spot she can see is with the ultimate off-limits option: a professional wrestler. Will she break her own rules for love, or will it be business as usual?
