Lindsay Henry is a writer from the small town of St. Charles, Michigan. She fell in love with reading at a young age when she first read THE RAINBOW FISH by Marcus Pfister to her class. The writing came soon after, and she’s never looked back. She attended Central Michigan University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in Interpersonal Communication and a master’s degree in Communication.
Lindsay has worn many hats in the world of words, including: newspaper reporter, church video announcement girl, romantic relationship breakup researcher, public speaking instructor, voiceover artist and script writer. Her work has been published on The Huffington Post, Amy Poehler's Smart Girls at the Party, Mogul, Girls Leadership, Libero Network and beUtiful magazine. By day, she works as a copywriter for a marketing & advertising company. By early morning/night, she writes Young Adult fiction.
I grew up on a dead end street on the banks of the Bad River (yes, that's the river's real name) in St. Charles, Mich.
An otter is my spirit animal.
Heinz ketchup is my kryptonite.
I love quotes. Preferably the inspirational type.
You can successfully bribe me with fresh cookie dough. Just ask my mom. It's her go-to move when we get in an argument.
When I was in the 9th grade, I danced in the Moscow Ballet's rendition of The Nutcracker. Don't go thinking I was a glamorous sugar plum fairy or something. I was one of the Mouse King's rat minions (complete with velvet body suit and giant rat head hat).
Unpopular opinion: Chai tea > Coffee
I get my excessive worrying from my mom, my humor from my dad, and my tendency to overanalyze from me.
Scars include: Near my eye from a wooden slide, on my leg from a Rollerblading incident (I fell. The end.), and my self-esteem from middle school.
Most of the photos on this website were taken right down the road from my childhood home. I grew up in the woods (the one thing I have in common with Laura Ingalls Wilder).
I am stellar at spotting deer before they run across the road at night. A helpful trait when you drive back roads most of your life.
Random things I'm proud of: my cow impression, getting third place in the Patterson Elementary School spelling bee, and having less allergies than most.
I laugh a lot. I hug a lot, too. Don't be alarmed. I'll try to respect your personal space. I get it. Not everyone is a hugger.
I use the Bunny Ear Method when tying my shoes. Honestly, I don't think I've even tried the other way.
I am easily excitable, which I don't deem a negative the way some do.
I remember my high school years eerily well. It's a blessing and a curse.
Writing is the only thing that I am semi-decent at, which works out because it's also my way to stay sane.
I have this dream of getting a book published and being a Young Adult author.
I love anyone who supports that dream of mine.
Faith and hope play large parts in my life. All glory to God.
