La Marque, TX Author Publishes Novel

In the Company of Masks, a new book by Lennis Holloway, has been released by RoseDog Books.

About the Author

Lennis Holloway grew up lying on his parents’ hardwood floors of a shotgun country house reading old, outdated Grit newspapers; old, outdated Field and Stream magazines; and any advertisements he could get his hands on. His desire to listen to stories and read stories became a passion. He used his imagination as he read to enjoy imaginable tastes of fruits read about, enjoy the imaginable feel of fine clothes and shoes on his body, and faraway places he couldn’t afford to travel to.

Holloway earned a BS degree in English/journalism from Grambling State University and a Master of Education degree from Northeast Louisiana University. He taught for eight years in his hometown of West Carroll Parish School District, four years in Morehouse Parish School District, and twenty-five years in the La Marque Independent School District. He is a member of Support Warrior of the Greater St. Matthews Baptist Church of Hitchcock, Texas. He is married to his childhood sweetheart, Ernestine Nabors, and has two adult children, Shannon and Lynetta Holloway. His oldest daughter, Shannon, has blessed him with a handsome grandson, Tyler; the youngest daughter, Lynetta, and husband Cedric have blessed him with a beautiful granddaughter, Cydnee. Holloway and his wife reside in La Marque, Texas.
