Lindsay EdmundsCountry: United States
BiographyLindsay Edmunds lives a quiet normal life in southwestern Pennsylvania after more than twenty interesting years in Washington, D.C. In 1988 she acquired a used Mac Plus. MacWrite, MacPaint, and a dot-matrix printer—these things changed her life.
Speculative fiction, literary fiction, magical realism, spirituality, social commentary, humor, alternative history, coming of age — all those labels apply to her writing, sometimes simultaneously. She writes the kind of stories she likes to read: tales that mix it up, that show a lot of colors.
Her highest ambition is that her stories be true “in the way that stories are true,” to quote Nancy Willard, who wrote the wonderful novel Things Invisible to See.
She believes that everybody has stories to tell. If you doubt it, get someone talking about their job. It doesn’t matter what kind of job it is. You will hear tales of intrigue, heroics, deviltry, and lessons learned. People will talk with great insight about their experiences and in doing so, will tell you about themselves.
Everybody sees a lot. Everybody knows a lot.
