Lindsay can't remember a time in her life when she wasn't immersed in a world of stories. She spent most of her childhood devouring books, crafting characters and settings in her notebook, and acting out her own stories. Today Lindsay shares her love of stories and the stage through her company, World of Difference Ltd., where she performs interactive folktales for all ages while teaching about foreign cultures, inspiring the imagination and promoting a love for learning and literacy. Lindsay has written poetry, children's books, skits, magazine articles, as well as screenplays. She gathers inspiration from all around her and is never short on ideas, many of which wake her up at night.
Having lived in Spain, being married to a Colombian, and now raising their son to be bilingual, Lindsay enjoys weaving the Spanish language and elements of Hispanic culture into her writing when possible. She is a member of SCBWI as well as a number of online writing and critique groups. Lindsay lives in Ohio with her super-supportive husband, Estith; her extremely active son, Rafael; and her rescue dog, Blitzen. Her hobbies include reading, running, cooking and traveling the world.
