Kaia & Tom Robbins
Kaia Alexander (also known by her penname of K. Hollan Van Zandt) is a celebrated author, teacher and history nerd who shares ancient wisdom with a modern flare.

WRITER

Kaia’s debut novel, Written in the Ashes, is a historical novel about the events that led up to the burning of the Great Library of Alexandria, Egypt, as well as the life and tragic death of the first female mathematician/scientist, Hypatia. All history is steeped in legend. This era marked the loss of the ancient Oracles, as well as the rise of the Christians, and the dedicated pagan resistance determined to preserve the world’s knowledge before it was forever lost.

Kaia hails from southern writer roots. Her great grandmother, Noni, ran a small newspaper in Earl, Arkansas. Kaia’s writing mentor is novelist Tom Robbins. They met on the island of Maui in 1996, and have been pen pals for over 20 years.

Kaia continues to write books, both for the LGBTQ community, and for children.
