Hi, I’m Marla!

Yo! I’m Marla Holt. I write smart, sexy romance. I like to park at the intersection of feminism and romance to create heroines with agency and heroes with heart. The result is a series of modern fairy tales where the heroine slays her own dragons and still gets her happily ever after. I just published my eight full-length novel!

I wasn’t always writing multiple books a year. Hell, I wasn’t always writing period. But I yearned too. I longed to put words down, to create worlds and stories and write heroines with agency and heroes with heart. A part of me that I knew was there, but was hiding behind fear and doubt and a lifetime of being told in one way or another that my words weren’t good enough. If you’re in a similar place, or just struggling to find time to write, and want to write every day, I invite you to join me for the Start Writing Challenge or check out my Writing Coach Services.

I’m also a bookstagrammer and book reviewer. You’ll start to see more book reviews on my blog, and you can follow me on Instagram at @marlaholtauthor.
