Most of M E Holley's career was first spent in teaching English to adults and then, as a management consultant, she taught business English and personal presentation. When she moved to Herefordshire she began to write her first book, for older children, inspired by the legends of the Welsh Border counties. The series, 'Jonah and the Last Great Dragon', takes place in the present time, when local people find that the creatures in their old stories are actually real. M E Holley is currently working on the third book in the series. Many people have said that they would like to see a film of 'Legend of the Heart Eaters', the first book, and now a long-established Hollywood screenwriter and director is interested in writing the screenplay.
