C.E. Holmes

C.E. Holmes C.E. Holmes was born in Omaha, Nebraska, and grew up in Okoboji, Iowa. He loved the water, read a lot of books and acted out some of the scenes. His grandmother gave him Huckleberry Finn, a book about freedom that scares some people but not him. Holmes lived vicariously through the characters; he traveled as far and wide as possible without flying and floated down the river — all the way down the river! Holmes worked in bookstores, libraries and schools. He began to write plays and had one concerning small town life performed. Since then he has written another, Meet De Boys on De Battlefront, and is in the process of writing one about a family sailing to Le Harve via the north Atlantic.
