"It’s hard to put into words how thankful I am for Lindsay’s guidance. It was a goal of mine to publish a story I wrote five years ago, yet struggled to get the ball moving because I didn’t have direction or a proper resource. Then I met Lindsay...


She is extraordinarily talented and knowledgeable in what she does. Her direction and guidance is top notch and if you’re lucky enough to work with her, then you’re in great hands. I believe Lindsay’s mentorship is something rewarding and beneficial. She has the ability to turn a process that is intricate and complicated into something simplified and easy and I could not have written my first book without her. "

- Christine Brisse, Author of "The Moon is Your Balloon"
