John Holliday

John Holliday grew up in England but spent much of his life as a business entrepreneur in Canada and Australia. John’s interest in writing arose when he decided to write a memoir of his business life. That experience led to a decision to write 'Mission to China: How an Englishman Brought the West to the Orient,' published initially in England, followed by a Chinese version in Taiwan. This was a biography of his great, great grandfether, Walter Medhurst. During the research of that book, John became aware of the extraordinary life Clara Colby, whose grandmother Clara Medhurst, was Walter Medhurst’s sister. This, he determined, “must be my next book.” Hence the publication of 'Clara Colby: The International Suffragist.'
