Holly Bourne is a British writer of Young Adult and contemporary fiction. Bourne cut her teeth in the world of print journalism as a columnist and editor, before working for a youth charity with particularly strong connections to mental health. Inspired by the issues that she was dealing with on a daily basis, Bourne began writing YA fiction based around themes of feminism and teen psychology. Her debut novel, Soulmates, appeared in 2013 and two years later saw the release of Am I Normal Yet?, the first in The Spinster Club series. Praised for its sensitive and credible handling of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Am I Normal Yet? was swiftly followed by How Hard Can Love Be?, What’s a Girl Gotta Do? and And a Happy New Year? Bourne is also the author of a number of stand-alone novels, including It Only Happens in the Movies and Are We All Lemmings and Snowflakes? In 2019 she produced her first adult novel, How Do You Like Me Now?
