A college professor gave Holly Karhoff an impossible assignment: Describe yourself using only one word. Karhoff narrowed it to three: I dont know.
That assignment sparked a lifelong curiosity about identity and the ways in which young adults discover their unique personalities.
She wrote her college thesis on identity, using the Salem Witch Trials as an historical example. Today she writes young adult fiction that explores issues of identity and has published a novel, Spiralling.
