About Me

This is the bit where I talk about myself.

My name is Lindsey and I live with my husband and dog in western Germany near the Black Forest. Living in Europe has made international travel much more accessible than it was to us in the States, and it is our mission to take full advantage of this while it lasts.

Photography is one of my loves, though I'm not committed enough to it to grow beyond amateur status. Writing is my deepest passion and something that has always been an important part of my life. I've been writing stories since I was a child and have only recently turned my focus toward writing professionally ... as in it's what I do.

It's a scary and exciting transition and one I often talk about in my blog. This blog. It's a little all over the place, but it's a reasonable mirror to what goes on inside my head, and a nice place to talk through things I feel are worth sharing. It's also a place where I attempt to work on writing discipline, as the goal is to be a published, working author and ride the dream I've kept on the back burner for far too long.

As of yet, my publication credits are limited to one poem in one of those poetry anthologies from years ago, an article on a now gone women's online magazine, and a short story at microluv (a literary magazine style blog for flash fiction). Oh, and all the *brilliant* material on this blog, as I've recently learned that posted online = published.
I write general fiction, or accessible literary fiction, if you will, and mostly for adults, although I'm also working on something in the young adult realm of fiction. For me it's short stories and novels, no poetry or travel writing, though my circumstances are perfect for the latter. As you'll find on this blog, I often write about our travels, but it's less informative as it is just a recap of our experience in another place.

As far as who I am, I am a deeply emotional, curious, socially awkward survivor of depression who is always eager to try new things. I'm also a writer.

I'm also very long-winded.

Murphy joins me in saying thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll swing back by sometime. He'd lick you if he could.
