Emily has been a professional writer and editor since 1987. She represents the literary estates of Barbara Holland, her mother; and Marion Holland, her grandmother.
Barbara Holland (1933-2010) wrote fiction for children and adults; as well as essays, biographies, history and humor. For fifty years, Barbara's short fiction, essays and articles appeared in a wide range of publications, including Smithsonian, McCalls, Redbook, Playboy, Prevention, Ms., Seventeen, The Washington Post, and many others. Barbara's fifteen books cover various genres--history, humor, essays, biography, memoirs and juveniles. Titles include "Hail to the Chiefs: Presidential Mischief, Morals & Malarkey from George W. to George W." and "Endangered Pleasures: In Defense of Naps, Bacon, Martinis, Profanity, and Other Indulgences." HarperCollins released a new edition of Barbara's "Secrets of the Cat: Its Lore, Legend and Lives," in 2010. Emily illustrated it.
Marion Holland (1908-1989) was a children's author and illustrator. Among her ten books was "A Big Ball of String," which was the fifth 'Beginner Book' published by Random House.
