Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
The name of my book is: HOLDEN ON TO Family Roots

Since 1992, I have been working on my family genealogy and talked about publishing my manuscript. I procrastinated and over the years I saw several books published that mentioned my family in them. Finally I decided to have my manuscript published so that those who were already familiar with my family could actually read short stories and some history about my family and not just focus on music as well as share the uniqueness of my family with anyone.

Briefly, I come from a family of musicians:
1. Granddaughter of Oscar Holden - Patriarch of Seattle -
2. Daughter of Dave L. Holden, Sr. - Musician around Seattle -
3. Sister of David L. Holden, Jr. - Musician around Seattle (currently play in the band GruvBox) -
4. Niece of Ron Holden - Hit song in 1960 called: 'Love you so' -
5. Niece of Jimmy Holden - Musician around Seattle -
6. Sister of Darrelle Holden – Background singer for Tom Jones -
7. Cousin of MarJean Holden -

There have been several books that have mentioned my family in them and on the front cover of ‘Jackson Street After Hours’ is my grandfather because he has been called: 'The Patriarch of Seattle', the one that brought jazz to Seattle. The following are a few named books that mention my grandfather, father and uncle:
1. The Fortunes of Jelly Roll Morton, New Orleans Creole and ‘Inventor of jazz’, Alan Lomax
2. Dead Man Blues Jelly Roll Morton Way out West, Phil Pastras
3. The Lost History of Jazz in Canada (1914-1949) Such Melodious Racket, Mark Miller
4. The Roots of Jazz in Seattle - Jackson Street After Hours, Paul de Barros (grandfather on cover of book)

Hi Linda,
Thanks for your reply. I look forward to having the sense of accomplishment and empowerment after publication. What advice do you have about marketing and promotion? Is marketing and PR work something that you would hire someone to help you do?

Hi Linda,
Thank you for those kinds words. I am impressed with your accomplishments as well. It must have taken alot of work to complete such a wonderful book. You must be proud of your success. You asked about me acting? I haven't acted in anything professionally yet, but I'm working on some scripts in which I might have some small parts. Have a wonderful day and weekend.
