BESTSELLING CRIME & THRILLER BOOK DOCTOR

My name is Holly Seddon and I’m a bestselling crime and thriller author. I love using my editorial and publishing expertise to help emerging and experienced writers achieve their goals.

From manuscript assessments to reviewing agent submission pitches and even helping unpick plot and planning problems, I am here to support you along your journey to publication.

My first book, Try Not to Breathe, was published in 2016 and went on to be a bestseller in the UK, USA, Ireland, Germany and Australia. I have since published three more commercially successful novels, with a fifth due to be published with Orion Fiction in late 2021.

Along with bestselling author Gillian McAllister, I am co-host of The Honest Authors Podcast.
