John Holliday grew up in England but spent much of his life as a business entrepreneur in Canada and Australia. John's interest in writing arose when he decided to write a memoir of his business life. That experience led to a decision to write Mission to China: How an Englishman Brought the West to the Orient, published initially in England, followed by a Chinese edition in Taiwan.
Mission to China is a biography of Walter Medhurst, John's 2nd great grandfather, and a famous missionary to China. During the research of the book, John became aware of the extraordinary life of Clara Colby, whose grandmother was Walter Medhurst's sister, and he became determined that this should be his next book.
John lives with his wife Colleen in Queensland, Australia.
