Welcome to episode 8 of the Indies’ Reading Block Podcast!

Holly Barbo’s world is shaped by her love of her family, the beauty of the natural world in Northwest Washington State and an irrepressible creative drive.

Living where the scenery is incredible with a rich abundance of wildlife “is so special and soothing that it feels like a quiet kind of magic,” according to Barbo. She is drawn to creating stories where there is just a bit of something unworldly, perhaps it is magic or psychic skills. Her stories are mostly in non-urban settings and usually have some focus on nature, building a discordant drama inside the peaceful frame.

A TIN OF HONEY is Holly’s first short story and takes place in an alternate timeline. Orphans are forced into slavery and kept in line with a specialized collar that shocks them if they do anything wrong. But a sweet treat might bring a group of orphans salvation.

A TIN OF HONEY will be featured in Holly’s upcoming short story collection, TENDRILS, which will be published later this year.
