Lindsay can’t remember a time in her life when she’s wasn’t immersed in a world of stories. She spent most of her childhood devouring books, scribbling stories in her notebook, and dramatically acting out her own “plays” on the front porch. Today Lindsay shares her love of stories and the stage through her company, World of Difference Ltd., where she performs interactive folktales while teaching about foreign countries and cultures, inspiring the imagination and promoting a love for learning and literacy.
Lindsay is an avid writer, having written poetry, picture books, skits, magazine articles even screenplays. She has four published children’s books (Lily and the City of Light, Lily and the Return to Htrae, ‘Twas the Year Christ Left Christmas, and O Christmas Tree) and two DVD films, Flight to India and Voyage to Russia, based on some of her most popular storytelling programs. She is always working on one, two or ten different picture book ideas!
Lindsay is a graduate of Northwestern University, where her studies focused on theatre, creative dramatics, storytelling, and world religions. Before founding her own company she performed and taught locally for such organizations as Magical Theatre Company and Malone University. She also spent a year and a half in Madrid where she toured Spain and Portugal with Interacting, an audience-participatory theatre company that used interactive performances to teach English to speakers of other languages. Lindsay’s love for world travel has taken her to five continents, and she has performed and taught in such places as Ghana, Haiti, Argentina and most recently, Guatemala and El Salvador.
Lindsay lives in North Canton, Ohio where you can often find her speaking Spanish with her Colombian-born husband, Estith; telling superhero stories to her sons Rafael and Alejandro; and running with their one-of-a-kind rescue dog, Blitzen.
Lindsay is a member of the National Storytelling Network (NSN), the Ohio Order for the Preservation of Storytelling (OOPS), and the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. She is also a teaching artist with Arts in Stark.
Lindsay is represented by Christa Heschke at McIntosh & Otis Literary Agency.
