More About the Author

I am the New York Times bestelling coauthor (with Debbie Viguie) of the New York Times bestselling dark fantasy series, Wicked. I also wrote the Crusade and Wolf Springs Chronicles series with Debbie, and we have a teen thriller out titled THE RULES.

I love the TV show BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and have written three novels about Cat and Vincent. The third, FIRE AT SEA, will be out on May 31--just in time for seaon 4 to begin!

My latest books are DEMONS OF THE HELLMOUTH: A GUIDE FOR SLAYERS and CRIMSON PEAK: THE OFFICIAL MOVIE NOVELIZATION. (Actually, Rupert Giles wrote DEMONS and I helped him get it published by Titan Books. He was embarrassed because his notebook had some much scribbling it in (by Buffy, Willow, Xander, and Faith) but Titan thought it added to the informational content of the Guide for all the new Slayers and elected to publish it as is. To top it all off, Giles's good friend Anthony Stewart Head wrote the Introduction.

CRIMSON PEAK: THE OFFICIAL MOVIE NOVELIZATION has been selling like crazy in a number of different formats and I've been receiving stellar reviews. Of course, I had the wonderful script by Guillermo del Toro and Matthew Robbins to work from, as well as a screening of GdT's breathtaking movie. Writing this novelization was a dream come true for me!

The reaction to the book has been wonderful. Here's what one reviewer said:

"The poetry in this novel is chilling and fantastic. The extra details bring unanswered questions to light and flesh the characters out a little more. If you fell in love with the film, this novel will deepen it."

BUFFY: THE MAKING OF A SLAYER is a beautiful tribute book published by 47 North with Joss Whedon's approval. We collected lots of never-before-seen images from the private collections of Buffy staffers, as well as interviews and reminiscences. Amber Benson, played Tara, wrote the foreword.

Here are some nice things people have said about THE WOLF SPRINGS CHRONICLES:

365andMe - 5 Stars
" From the get-go, this young adult werewolf story had me hooked...Bottom line, I can't wait to read book two. This is my first book by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié. I enjoyed it so much, I'd like to try another series while waiting for book two of the Wolf Springs Chronicles to come out."

"If you love Nightshade, or Kelley Armstrong you will definitely like this book, it has love, betrayal and A LOT of mystery. A great read." -- Siobhan Reads a Lot (blog)

Avid Reading in NV - 5 Stars
"I loved this book from page one, haven't been able to put it down till i just finished it."

Mundie Moms - 4.5 Stars
"This is a classic paranormal read! It's dark, thrilling and one I quickly devoured. I've read a lot of enjoyable wolf books this year, and this one is definitely at the top of my list. Nancy and Debbie's enticing blend of mystery, suspense, passion, love and loyalty made for a story that was hard to put down." - Katie

---

I am also the author of the POSSESSIONS series, for young adults, about a haunted boarding school, where the mean girls are EVIL. The BookKidsBLog says, "Possessions is the novel Stephen King would written if he'd been asked to write Gossip Girl." As I am a HUGE Stephen King fan, this made my head spin around like that poor little girl in The Exorcist.

I have also written some fairy tale retellings as well as tons of what we call "tie-in" books--which are based on TV shows and movies. My tie-ins include BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, HELLBOY, SMALLVILLE, SAVING GRACE, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, ANGEL, and others.

I was born in California and have lived in Germany and Japan. I was a ballet dancer for a while but after an injury I gave that up. I attended the University of Hawaii and graduated from the University of California at San Diego. I am also a faculty member of the Stonecoast MFA in Creative Writing Program, offered through the University of Southern Maine.

I live in San Diego with the writer Mark Mandell and our sweet Corgi, Tater. I love to travel, read, and watch movies. I'm also an avid Jazzerciser and yogini.

Nancy Holder dieplays the imaginative writing skills that won her several Horror Writer awards in this tale of the lost and the oppressed in LA. She introduces a bunch of monsters and gods I've never heard of before, and Angel has his hands full fighting them to defend the innocent. She is defenitely one of the best authors of the Buffy books.

First of all, let me explain that I am a big fan of David Lynch and other very odd cinema and literature. However, it takes a very skillfull artist to make a mindwarp like "Twin Peaks" work without losing the audience completely in the process. Of course, when you go for the bizarre you'll lose some people, but when your die-hard fans start scratching their heads you have a problem.
Nancy Holder, in "Not Forgotten" has done a great job with the characters. With only a few minor flubs, their actions and interactions seem like they came right out of a season one script. (Flubs include a little more humor than standard from Angel, some incorrect Irish phrasing from Doyle and flashback Angel, and the fact that Angel's human name was Liam, not Angelus - but at the time the novel was written the show had not revealed that latter point).
I was able to hold on through all the twists in the story and had no problem believing that Ms. Holder would make all clear in the end. In fact, I told my girlfriend when I was half through the book that this was the best Buffy or Angel book I'd read so far and the first one that I'd recommend to her.
Then I got to the end.
I had to re-read the last few pages several times. I was sure that I was more tired than I thought and just wasn't getting something. But no. I won't spoil the end here except to say that it does not successfully tie up any of the dangling plot threads and does not do a good job of making clear what the author intended. I am sure that Ms. Holder had in mind an ending that would wrap up everything nicely and leave the reader going "Oh.... so that's what was going on this whole time!" I can see the edges of the idea she was trying, but in my opinion she left a little too much of the ending up to the reader to interpret. Just a little more laid out would have let us grasp the rest.
All-in-all, a frustrating experience. Only recommended to die hard fans of the show or the author.

The opening grabs the reader and pulls you into a strange world of the dead and the near dead. Angel flash backs are always interesting to further establish his character. Also the faint Buffy references provide a nice continuity. But the flash backs between Angel's life, Meg's life and the past often break up the action. In the end as masks are removed and villians become victems there is no satisfaction and much confusion. Angel's encounter with an dying old woman is the most touching I've read in a long time. I almost wished for an epilogue in which Angel finds the child and passes the memory so she is not forgotten. I enjoyed the book but the plotting is not Ms Holder's best.

I read all the other available Angel books, but could never get into this. I tried starting it several times. The beginning had too many original characters, too much confusing mixed mythology (and I have blood relatives in South East Asia so it is not a cultural bias I am talking about...). Finally I had finished Avatar and had no new Angel or Buffy or Sixth Sense novels to read ((The SIXTH SENSE books are for "intermediate readers" but are TERRIFIC and should not be missed. I am over 20 years old and I mean this.)) I tried once more to read NOT FORGOTTEN; it continued to be "more work" than the other novels in the series---but, you know what?, it did pay off. I would have preferred an easier read, but I was desperate and it DID give me an Angel reading experience, with much reward, when there was nothing else available. I'm glad of that.

It took me a few minutes after I read the book to figure out what had just happened. This book has to be the worst in the series. It tries to mix humor in with Angel's broody nature and it fails. Can anyone out there who watches the show actually picture Angel responding to the question "what are you doing here?" with "livin' la vida loca"? It isn't a terrible book but it just doesn't stand out like "Redemption" for example. It does have it's strong points though but other parts are either confusing or just plain boring, especially the strange ending.

This book is about a cult worshiping an Indonesian death god and bringing over illegal immigrant as sacrifices. This book had the potential to be really good, but was rushed and confusing near the end. The writer also needs to do more research. In the Buffy episode, Halloween, it's said that Angel was 18 and still alive in 1775, but in Not Forgotten he supposedly became a vampire in 1752, 5 years before he was even born.

I haven't been reading buffy and angel books for long but I'm a big fan of the tv shows. I've only read two other angel books and this one was my third - and least favourite.
The book started strangely to begin with, and I must admitt did not get much better. I never understood what was going on with the girl, Meg, was she a decendant of that wierd Banshee thing angel encountered when he was human? Did she ACTUALLY die in the end? Or was she even real? All the talk of the weird chemicals that Jusef was injecting into her and the false memories confused me. Another thing, Jusef's father Bang Rais, did he die? After I had finished reading the book it took me a while to even realise it was meant to be an ending. I didn't even feel it had finished properly.
In my opinion there was too many weird deaths with people being killed and then kinda...not. In all it was an ok book, not the best angel story I have read. It has some good moments particually with Cordy and Doyle (one of my fave characters) and Angel getting a speeding ticket was funny.
If you dont want to end up being confused, or you dont like complicated plots or stupid endings don't read this book. I wouldn't recomend this for people reading their first Angel book - it'll put you off picking up another. Try reading a better one like Shakedown or Avatar.
