Ever since her father read The Hobbit aloud to her before bed when she was a little girl, Lindsay has been in love with the magic of storytelling. She used to write “books” on her grandmother’s electric typewriter, then illustrate (with crayons) and bind them (with staples) herself for distribution amongst her family. For several years, Lindsay worked in bookstores, libraries, and even in marketing at a major publisher while continuing to write books (this time on a computer) in her spare time. Now, she writes magical novels for middle grade readers. She is allergic to caffeine and mangoes, loves dogs, thinks tortoises are adorable, and unabashedly believes in impossible things.
Lindsay is represented by Elena Giovinazzo of Pippin Properties. She’s an active member of SCBWI, and spends too much time on Instagram and Twitter as @LindsayWrites.
For those of you wondering what the “jaw journal” stuff is about: I had lower jaw surgery in 2012 after more than ten years of chronic pain due to a dislocated jaw and malformed bite. I chronicled my jaw surgery and recovery experience on my blog. All posts that have anything to do with that experience are kept under the “jaw journal” menu. Hopefully my journey continues to help others who are facing a similar ordeal!
