Stories that are full of heart.
As an author of books for all ages—both the young in years and young at heart—I’ve tackled a wide variety of genres (contemporary realism, romance, thriller, humor, magic realism, just to name a few). Subjects of my books have run the gamut as well, from silly to serious: magical thinking caps, PTSD, folk art, high school athletes, dogs, mysterious small towns, enchanted theaters, and love in all its various forms—romantic love, familial love, and friendship. No matter the genre, age category, or subject, one thing my books tend to have in common is that they’re—well—positive. Even when my earliest books tackled harder-hitting subjects, they tended to end on hopeful notes. The more I write, the more I’ve come to realize the stories I most want to highlight are those that focus on the beauty in the world. The uplifting and inspiring. Feel-good stories that are sincere and genuine and, yes, straight from heart.
Tell them to meet me at the middle: Holly Schindler’s Middles.
My work is award winning and critically acclaimed.  My books have received starred reviews in Booklist and Publishers Weekly, won silver and gold medals in ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year and the IPPY Awards, respectively, been featured on Booklist’s Best First Novels for Youth and School Library Journal’s What’s Hot in YA, and chosen as a PW Pick of the Week.  I’ve also been nominated for several children’s book awards, including the Mark Twain Award.
Newsletters
My newsletters are a great place to get in touch.  It’s how I let my readers know about new releases, of course, but I also want to hear from you.  If you’re a teacher or librarian, I want to know about your students—what they’re interested in, what issues they’re facing. As a hybrid author, I can release work quickly, and can help you fill the holes on your classroom or library shelves in a timely manner.  I also want to hear from my adult or YA readers—and aim to make each specific newsletter as interactive as possible.  Sign up for the newsletter(s) of choice below:

Branching Out
I’m constantly branching out, writing in new genres and across a variety of new platforms. Lately, I’ve begun to add illustrative work to my books when the project calls for it. Like any storyteller, I go where the story wants to take me…
