About the Author

Holden Sheppard is a Perth-based YA and fantasy author originally from Geraldton, Western Australia. His short fiction has been published in Indigo Journal and page seventeen. He has also written for the Huffington Post, the ABC, DNA Magazine and FasterLouder.

A graduate of Edith Cowan University's Creative Writing program, in 2015 Holden was awarded a prestigious ArtStart grant from the Australia Council for the Arts. The following year, he undertook a mentorship through the Australian Society of Authors, developing his debut novel. He is a committee member of the Peter Cowan Writers' Centre in Joondalup.

In 2017, Holden's e-book THE SCROLL OF ISIDOR achieved some success in the international market, charting at #3 on the iBooks Epic Fantasy Chart and #19 on Barnes & Noble Fantasy Short Stories Chart.

Holden is a discordant confluence of identities: a geeky rocker; a bogan who learned to speak French; and a gym junkie who has played Pokémon competitively. He may be the only writer to switch to decaf and live to tell the tale, and he's quit smoking more times than he cares to admit.

Excellent read. Your writing is fantastic and I love the way the story builds to reveal more about Nick's life and put his situation into context.

I really liked the way you wrote this story. It made me feel a lot for the character and what drove him to do what he did.
