Victoria "Vicky" Holmes is the editor of the bestselling Warriors books, written by Kate Cary and Cherith Baldry under the pseudonym Erin Hunter, and published by HarperCollins. Holmes creates the plots, then Cary and Baldry write the stories. Holmes is also in charge of maintaining series continuity and making sure that there's a consistent "voice" across the books.
"I grew up on a farm and love all animals, including cats, but most especially dogs and horses. This comes in very handy when I need to send cats to a sticky end; I'd have a lot more trouble killing off a dog or a horse! I love being one of the Erins, and frequently dream of being a cat running through a forest when I am coming up with the new storylines. Teaming up with Kate and Cherith on the Warriors books is an unconventional way of working, but we love writing the books together and it means we can produce them much faster than a single writer could. We each have our favorite characters and ideas for what could happen next, which means the stories have three times as much energy and passion!" - (Quote from warriorcats.com)
