Lindsay the Book NerdI've loved learning my whole life. I was that weird kid who was excited for school to start again at the end of every summer. I was also the girl who couldn't get enough books in my life. When my family would prepare to go on our annual road trip to see my grandparents in Oklahoma, my mom would buy me several new books--and I'd sneak into her room and try to read them early. She always caught me.
When I was in college, I discovered the genre of Christian fiction. Okay, not just discovered--devoured. I read as many books as I could get my hands on. It was then I thought, "Wow...maybe I could write this stuff."
Lindsay the Writer/EditorWhen I was six years old, I wrote the riveting tale “How to Eat Mud Pie.” It was brilliant, I tell you. That was followed by many other "books" (aka, papers folded in half and stapled together) and a flourishing love of writing. I took creative writing in high school, but after that, decided to pursue journalism instead.
What followed was more than 10 years of a variety of jobs writing for college newspapers, penning health- and beauty-related articles for consumers, editing curriculum for two local universities, and working as a copywriter for a digital marketing agency.
But somewhere along the line, my love of fiction came flickering back. I remembered my first love--and have been pursuing it hard ever since 2011. I joined American Christian Fiction Writers and My Book Therapy (I love both of these organizations and highly recommend), started a blog, wrote a book (and then two, three, four...), landed an agent in 2013, and in March 2016, received my first contract for one of my novels. My journey doesn't end here--it's only beginning.
