"A delightful ride!"


"Enjoyable read with mystery, magic, crime, humor, a talking cat and quirky characters, young and old. Great imagery of NYC, Greenwich Village and just enough suspense to keep you intrigued! Ms. Holding has a very creative way with words! Well worth a read!"

"Reading 'Planted on Perry Street' made me yearn for a friend like Maddie and a neighborhood filled with shops like those owned by her and her friends."

As a proofreader and a copy editor, Laurie has the grammatical eye of a hawk.


As a writer, she'll make you laugh out loud and think. And really, what else are you looking for in a good read? 

Jeanne Baker,

Developmental Editor,


Laurie spent innumerable hours with me and on her own patiently combing through my book. A non-fictional account of a WWI fighter pilot's life, the text was full of dates and battles, and Laurie researched every last one of them to make sure my text was perfect.

Gene Genchereau,


William Thaw

of the Lafayette Escadrille

Laurie co-wrote several of my stories in an anthology I put together about my character's familiar, Fergus the Unicorn. I'm sure her witch series will be right up the witch cozy reader's alley.


Her writing is funny and smart, and her characters leap off the page.


Oh, she's a solid editor as well. (She's edited 24 of my books.)

Scott Paul,


The Federal Witch Series

& The Jack Dalton Series
