Firefighter writer

Holly Volz is amazing. She's a firefighter and a writer and she's just completed a manuscript about her life called Going In that is truly fascinating. "Fire does whatever the hell it wants," Holly says, and reading her book made me think about flames (and firefighters) a whole lot differently than I did before. The haunting photo on the left is from her website, which also has an excerpt from her book.
All I can say is I wish Holly lived closer than Indiana because I'd love to travel along with her for a day.

Wow - does she have an agent? A publisher? I'd love to read this.
