Nicholas was born on June 29, 1991 in Eugene, Oregon to proud parents Michael and Deborah (Crosley) Holland. He and his family relocated to Columbia when Nicholas was 5 years old. He attended Fairview Elementary School and Rock Bridge High School where he graduated in 2009. After graduation, he attended Moberly Area Community College, and The University of Missouri. His interests were broad—from biofuel to brewing, but he recently decided that he wanted to become a writer. He also worked for the past three years at Hy-Vee, where his customers benefited from his courtesy and kindness.
