Author Bio:
An English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay's the English teacher cliché; she love cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe.

She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, Marjorie, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.

Lindsay's goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows she's done her job.

Lindsay's hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

My husband is my everything, and I'm not afraid to admit that.
He is my rock when I feel like giving up or like I can't go on.
He is my source of laughter when everything's falling apart.
He is my fighter when something isn't fair.
He is my cheerleader when I feel like I'm losing.
He is my righter when I am wrong.
He is my focus when I lose sight of the bigger picture.
He is my reminder to go with the flow.
He is my shield from the painful aspects of life.
He is everything to me.
As a writer, I look for ideas that spark emotion. I want readers to feel every word of my writing. I want them to laugh with the characters, but I also want them to cry. Life isn't perfect, and neither is love. Sometimes it is the biggest source of pain.
To Say Goodbye came to be mostly out of fear…the fear of losing my husband. I got to thinking what life would be like if I were forced to face it without him, if tragedy struck. I thought about how hopeless I would feel, how I wouldn't ever know if could go on.
To Say Goodbye, in many ways, is a projection of one of my biggest fears. However, it's also a hopeful story. It shows that the human spirit is capable of amazing feats. The human heart, too, is able to achieve unimaginable triumphs.
Sophia's story is a story I hope I never have to live through. However, her story is also a reminder that even in our broken times, love both past and present can carry us through.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I grew up in a small town, attended church, heard the stories in Sunday School. Pretty standard midwestern US youth. The story of the prodigal son always interested me — he took his inheritance and squandered it, abominably. When he returned home, utterly penniless, his father welcomed him with open arms and a party. The important part wasn't the money — the important part was family. Of course, in PRODIGAL, 'family' means the hero and heroine, but the moral is the same.

I am a former military member and have seen the effects PTSD can have on those who have been to war, and how it affects every aspect of their lives.
I decided to write a series that focuses on three ex-marines who feel lost and broken after leaving the services, and the women who help them heal and find peace. The books deal with some pretty heavy issues that many veterans struggle with, including mental health issues, alcoholism and self-medication, and difficulties transitioning into civilian life.
I've also pledged to donate a portion of every sale from each book in the series to a charity dedicated to helping veterans in crisis.

Devil in the Countryside by Cory Barclay

Devil in the Countryside is a story about the most famous werewolf investigation in history, brimming with intrigue and war, love and betrayal, and long-kept vendettas.

It’s 1588, the height of the Reformation, and a killer is terrorizing the German countryside. There are reports that the legendary Werewolf of Bedburg has returned to a once-peaceful land. Heinrich Franz, a cold and calculating investigator, is tasked with finding whomever — or whatever — the killer might be. He’ll need all the help he can get, including that of a strange hunter who’s recently stumbled into town. Though they’re after the same thing, their reasons are worlds apart. And through it all, a priest tries to keep the peace among his frightened townsfolk, while a young woman threatens his most basic beliefs.

In a time when life is cheap and secrets run rampant, these four divergent souls find themselves entwined in a treacherous mystery, navigating the volatile political and religious landscape of 16th century Germany, fighting to keep their sanity — and their lives.

Reaper’s Promise by Kiki Leach

Colette: I woke up in Vegas married to my ex-boyfriend’s hot as hell biker brother. Not that I’m exactly complaining considering I’ve practically been in love with him since forever, but… Record scratch. Wait a second. I bet you’re wondering how the hell a kindergarten teacher got here, right? Well join the (biker) club, because so am I!

Roman: She woke up next to me in Vegas with a diamond cuff around her ankle and a matching ring on her finger, and is wondering how the hell she got here. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that she only said yes to my proposal because she thought I was my inept kid brother. I didn’t have the guts to tell her that I’ve wanted to know the taste of her skin and the feel of her legs wrapped around my waist from the moment she was first introduced to me as his girlfriend nine years ago. But I DO have the b*lls to tell her that since she’s now officially been made mine, there’s no way in f*ck that I’m letting her go.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to write a standalone novel from my “Dan Taylor” thrillers, and being a romantic suspense fan for some years, felt it was time to create something which fell into that genre.

The whole idea dropped into my head while in the UK last year – the opening scene where Kate has a sack-cloth over her head, the condensation from her breathing making it stick to her mouth and nose. Whilst on holiday in Malta, I sketched out the whole plot while on a boat sailing up the coast of that beautiful island one day – it was such a relaxing activity while I had all that turmoil and emotion going round in my head, frantically writing it in my notebook!

I discovered two people who annoyed the hell out of each other to start with, but then realise that they need each other to survive.
