Polly Holyoke graduated Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude from Middlebury College in Vermont and earned her teaching certificate from the University of Colorado. Polly has been writing stories since she was in fifth grade. When she isn’t tapping away on her computer, Polly loves reading, camping, skiing, scuba diving and hiking in the desert (where she got herself bitten by a rattlesnake two years ago). She lives with three rescue dogs, two spoiled cats and a very nice husband who tolerates piles of books all over their house. Her debut middlegrade novel, THE NEPTUNE PROJECT, is the story of Nere Hanson, a young girl leading a group of genetically-altered teens fighting to survive in the sea. She is thrilled that this novel will be published by Disney/Hyperion and Puffin Books UK summer, 2013. She loves going to work in her pajamas and getting paid for daydreaming!Polly currently resides in Plano, Texas.
