Holly Sweet majored in English and education at Vanderbilt University. She used her degree to teach middle school for a while. She also played roller derby for a while. Now she writes for young adults and listens to a lot of podcasts. Recently, she spent a few months without a front tooth thanks to a peppercorn hiding in a BLT. Holly and her husband and their new son live in Houston (and they like it there, believe it or not).
