Holly Farlee, Burkesville, KY, publishes first book
The book is The Elf Princess: Into the Cursed Realm. Author is graduate of Cumberland County High School, and now a student at Somerset Community College
By Dave Cazalet, Jr., SCC Director of Public Affairs
Holly Farlee, a student at the Clinton Center of Somerset Community College has published her first book entitled The Elf Princess: Into the Cursed Realm. Farlee is a member of the writing group "Poets & Prosers," a grassroots writing club at the Clinton Center.
The group is co-sponsored by SCC Clinton Center Library Specialist Jo Murley and SCC Faculty member Jon Frederick.
Farlee was born and raised in Burkesville KY. She is the youngest of five children. Her parents are Tom and Joan Farlee. Farlee graduated from Cumberland County High School in 2008. She is majoring in auto body repair at SCC.
When Farlee was in school, she said was always daydreaming about other worlds.
"I found a way to venture into these worlds of my mind and bring other people into them as well. I have always had a love for storytelling and writing," Farlee said. "Writing has been one of my favorite pass times for some time now. The Elf Princess is my first book to be finished and published. I have been writing for the past 6 years."
In reviewing Farlee's book, Glenda Lee Davis, the author of Force Recon: Eagle, wrote, "In The Elf Princess: Into the Cursed Realm, Holly D. Farlee takes you on an electrifying adventure. She includes all of the best qualities in a great fairytale: horrifying tragedy, damsel in distress, knight on horseback, and a romantic ending. The difference in this fairytale and all the others is that she strays from the norm including great comedy along with wonderful battle scenes. I was hooked on page one and would recommend to anyone as a great read."
In another review, B.M. Song, the author of Liquid Reflections: A Stream of Fluid Prose:, wrote, "...a divine, thrilling plot that kept me wanting to read more. The Elf Princess is charming and vivid...the images painted brought you into the story. The characters really jump off the page. A must read for fantasy lovers."
"I have always loved writing. Over the years it has been a get away from real life. Faraway lands, adventures, and love have always had a home in my imagination and soon moved into my writing. In my stories you can be whoever or whatever you want. When I start typing there are very few limitations," Farlee explained.
