LeeAnn Nichole (Holmes) Adams writes under the pseudonym, L. N. Holmes. Her fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction have appeared in literary journals and magazines such as Newfound (web), Obra/Artifact, STARKVestal ReviewF(r)iction, and Laurel Magazine, among others. Her longer works include a nearly completed collection of short fiction and the first draft of an ambitious novel (both of which she hopes to finish and publish within the next three years). In addition to her creative writing, she’s written many book reviews, literary journal reviews, interviews, news articles, and more. Some of her editorial experience includes twenty-two months with Tethered by Letters, two years with Blue River, and two years with Incunabula.

She has been honored with the 2012 Katherine B. Rondthaler Award for Poetry, the 2013 Salem College President’s Prize for Creative Writing, and a first place for nonfiction in a literary journal from the North Carolina College Media Association in 2013. She was also a half-fellow in the Creighton University MFA program and her poem, “War Song,” was long-listed for the 2016 Wisehouse International Poetry Award.

Graduating from Salem College in 2013, Holmes received a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing with minors in English and history. Later she attended Creighton University, where she received her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing in 2017. In addition to formal education, she’s actively sought out other opportunities to learn and has attended writing conferences, workshops, and readings in many different states.

A native of Wilmington, Ohio, Holmes currently lives in Bellevue, Nebraska. She’s married to her wonderful husband, Collin, and has three furry pets—a dog, Cattleya, and two cats, Rex and Hadassah. She’s a Christian who believes in protecting the planet, equal pay for women, and loving your neighbor. She also believes writers should be paid for their work. You can follow her on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn—but she’s the most active on Twitter, where she tweets about literary stuff and video games.
