Holly Wright is a poet, shorty story writer, and author of the new novel The Runaway. She was born with a book in her hands and has been writing since she was eight years old. She’s now an English major with plans to continue writing until someone pries her pen from her cold, dead hand.
Currently bouncing between their homes in Colorado and Wyoming, Holly lives a crazy, fast-paced life with her husband and newborn daughter. Holly vehemently objects to the idea that she should have a dog to complete the picture.

Jac is running from her pain.
An eighteen-year-old bound for Harvard, Jac realizes she’s nowhere close to who she wants to be… and she’s not even sure who that is. Lost and alone, she flees her hometown without a word, leaving her family, boyfriend, and life behind without looking back. She finds herself in Los Angeles, California-- The City of Angels, and, she learns, dreamers.
Amid a group of actors, artists, singers, and poets, Jac finds more than she bargained for. She finds herself, a family, and love she never dreamed she deserved.
But the life she left behind haunts her, and the loneliness and pain that drove her to run are always right on her heels.
The girl who ran has a choice to make, in the end. Does she keep running, keep moving to stay ahead of everything she never wanted… or does she find a way to finally face the things that broke her?
