Sweet Home Junior High science teacher Mark Holden wrote a book more than 20 years ago, but it took technology and his daughter Elise’s writing her own to prod him into publishing it.

Holden used the book for years in class, reading excerpts as part of his lessons when he was an elementary teacher.

In May, Elise Holden published her book, “Brothers;” and in July, he published his, “Innerland,” both of them through Amazon’s Kindle.

Elise, 18, completed her book as part of her senior project at Oregon Connections Academy, the high school program she chose to finish school.
