Firefly Hill Press Signs Majanka Verstraete as their Newest YA Fantasy Author


Verstraete writes The Adventures of Marisol Holmes Series


Firefly Hill Press (FHP) welcomes Majanka Verstraete as the press’ newest Young Adult Fantasy author. Majanka, who hails from Belgium, joins our team of authors having previously published over a dozen Young Adult and Children’s books in the fantasy, horror, and paranormal genres. She has been writing since she was 7 years old and is excited to bring her most recent series to Firefly Hill Press. The Adventures of Marisol Holmes Series is about seventeen-year-old Marisol Holmes, the great-great-great granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes, who works for an underground organization of detectives solving supernatural cases using their shifter powers and fantastical intuitions.

“We are thrilled to have Majanka join us as the newest member of this fierce group of female authors. We know she’ll bring a new voice and sense of adventure to our young readers,” said Danielle Modafferi, CEO at FHP. “Her stories are already so well-reviewed and loved by her fans. We are lucky to have her on board!”

Majanka says, “I'm really excited about the opportunity FHP gave me to not have to go on this route as author alone, and to have a team to back me up. Marisol Holmes wouldn't give up when facing a challenge, and I'm confident this new path will bring exciting prospects and opportunities for The Adventures of Marisol Holmes.”

The first book in the series, A Study in Shifters, is available now at all major book retailers in ebook format and the paperback is coming soon. The second book in the series, The Sign of the Serpent, is set to launch early 2019. Keep your eyes peeled for information and updates on upcoming releases.

Firefly Hill Press (FHP) is a small independent publishing house who strives to find, publish, and market exceptional works of novel-length fiction, specifically in the YA and Romance genres. We specialize in stories that feature heroines who are not afraid to save themselves - no damsels need apply! Our stories feature love and obstacles that enhance our protagonists' journeys but in no way defines them. We like to believe that we reclaim the term "happily ever after" and illustrate how it is a unique pursuit and triumph to each character and her goals.
