About the Author

Hollie Overton

Baby Doll is my first novel, and so much of it is formed by my own childhood experiences.

An identical twin, I was born in Chicago, IL and adopted at six days old, along with my identical twin sister, Heather and carried home in matching red Christmas stockings.

My father was a member of the Overton Gang and spent several years in prison for manslaughter. Unfortunately, he found family life overwhelming. His addictions began to consume him, leading to my parent's divorce. My mother relocated my sister an I to her hometown of Kingsville, Texas. A theater nerd, I spent my childhood dreaming of bright lights and big cities.

My love affair with storytelling led me to New York City where I studied acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, writing at Hunter College and mixology in Murray Hill. A few years later, I headed to Hollywood with dreams of becoming a star. My sole TV claim to fame was one episode of TNT"s "Leverage," opposite DB Sweeney. Thankfully, I realized my talents were better suited behind the scenes.

My first screenwriting break came in 2008 when I was accepted into the coveted Warner Brothers Writers Workshop, a boot camp style program for aspiring TV writers. I've gone on to write for CBS and Lifetime. I'm currently a writer and Co-Producer on the new Freeform drama Shadowhunters, based on Cassie Clare's international bestseller "The Mortal Instruments." There's nothing more I love than working with aspiring TV writers. I currently teach and offer private consults at Script Anatomy.

I live in West Hollywood, CA, with the loves of my life, my rescue Chihuahua, Stevie and my British husband, David. When I'm not writing, I can be found exploring LA (and beyond) with my twin sister, Heather. Sometimes we even let Stevie and David join us.
