About Evelyne Holingue
French American author Evelyne Holingue’s passion for stories began early. At the age of 4 she tried to read the newspaper on her father’s lap. Soon after, her reading and writing skills took off. Her first written piece (a poem) was published in a local newspaper when she was a 6th grader. When Evelyne moved to the United States with her husband and baby she improved her English knowledge through lots of reading and soon fell in love with the rich American children’s literature. She learned the craft of writing and started to write short stories and novels. Through fiction Evelyne shares her affection for her native and adoptive lands. Writing in a nonnative language is a perpetual challenge so Evelyne writes every day, whether developing a new idea for a novel or revising a manuscript.
Her novels include the Young Adult thriller Trapped in Paris, the Middle Grade historical novel Chronicles From Château Moines and the Young Adult contemporary novel All the Mountains We Can Climb.
Fun fact about Evelyne:
She never falls asleep without reading and sometimes falls asleep while reading.
