Frank Turner Hollon
Frank Turner Hollon was born on July 24th, 1963, in Huntsville, Alabama.

His first published novel, The Pains of April, was written in longhand in New Orleans at age twenty-four and stayed in a box until Hollon gathered the courage to send it out for publication twelve years later.

However, in 2003, MacAdam/Cage Publishing Company released Hollon's comic novel, Life Is A Strange Place, and it became clear the author was more interested in the freedom to write about diverse subjects and themes than financial success. The succeeding books have ranged from comic in nature, to religious, a Children's book, legal and psychological mysteries, and full circle back to literary with the publication of his ninth novel, The Book of Neil, in 2012. Life Is A Strange Place was adapted for film in 2010 with the release of Barry Munday starring Patrick Wilson, Judy Greer, Cybill Shepherd, Billy Dee Williams, Malcolm McDowell, and Jean Smart. The film based on Hollon's sixth novel, Blood and Circumstance, is scheduled to begin filming in October, 2012. Creative Artists Agency continues to represent Frank Turner Hollon's books.
