A Vanderhoof resident has released her debut novel, Knight Terrors, and it promises to be scintillating.

Aline Holloway shares her journey from being a high school teacher for over 20 years to an author with the Express.

From the time she wanted to be a writer, Holloway was always captivated by the Knight Templars and started her eight-year journey writing an adventurous and historical book. “I thought I could possibly create something that young adults would be interested in reading.”

She currently teaches English at the EBUS Academy in the district.

As writing wasn’t her trade, she said it took her two years to research the historical aspects of the book .

Holloway is fascinated by J.K. Rowling’s writing process and “how she would write scenes and make them fit”.

“That really freed me as a writer to be able to write something about what I had a good idea and worry about where it would fit in the story later,” Holloway said.

Knight Terrors has been published by Burnstown Publishing House in Toronto, and is available locally at stores including the Vanderhoof Department Store. There will be two more books in the series that will hit local shelves soon.

“Now that I have got the characters established. I have a good idea where the story is going to end up. It should only take me a year to get the book written and edited,” she said.

If you would like to get your hands on the Knight Terrors, reach out to Holloway at to get your copy.

“I hope that the readers will enjoy losing themselves in history and learning while enjoying reading.”
