Meet Polly Holmes

Australian author, Polly Holmes writes paranormal and culinary cozy mysteries and paranormal suspense. Her books are rich in storyline with action-packed scenes, a touch of comedy and fun-loving characters that stay with you long after you turn the last page. 


According to Polly, the best part about writing cozies is researching. Finding the best way to hook the reader, a unique way to murder someone, a plethora of suspects and of course, a touch of magic with a dose of sweetness thrown in for good measure. All of Polly Holmes' books can be found in Kindle Unlimited (KU).


Polly is an award-winning author, and her book awards tally so far is two firsts and seven finalist places from all around the world. 


On the business front, she won silver in the 2020 ROAR! National Business Awards in the Writer/Blogger/Author category and for the second year in a row, she was a finalist in the 2021 ROAR! National Business Awards winning bronze in the Writer/Blogger/ Author category with Gumnut Press taking out the gold in the Hustle and Heart category. In 2022, she was also a finalist in the AusMumpreneur Awards in the Author category and a finalist in two categories in The Seven Effect Life and Business Awards. 

When the mystery calls for a different kind of action, she writes contemporary romance under the name P.L. Harris where the suspense is nail biting, and the romance is hot and steamy.

Polly lives not far from the beach in the northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia with her Bishion Frise, Bella. When she's not writing you can find her sipping coffee in her favourite cafe, watching reruns of Murder, She Wrote or taking long walks along the beach soaking up the fresh salty air.
