About Lindsay Edmunds

Lindsay Edmunds lives a quiet normal life in southwestern Pennsylvania, except when she is writing. Her fiction reflects two longstanding interests: fantasy and the relationships people have with machines. The first computer she ever owned was a Mac Plus, circa 1988. That little beige toaster changed her life.

Her favorite movie of all time is Local Hero. She is a fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and in 2012 wrote about MST3K for HuffPost TV.

She blogs at Writer's Rest about movies and TV, books, machine intelligence, and life in southwestern Pennsylvania. Drop by, say hello, and share a story or two.

Review by: Tamara Epps on March 27, 2012 : star star star star
Cel and Anna is completely different from any other futuristic end-of-the-world books I've ever read. This in large part is due to the fact that the characters are the main point of the story, rather than the technology that surrounds them. Not to mention that it is set just before the downfall of the world, rather than after it.

Lindsay Edmunds has a very unique storytelling style which I have to admit felt a little bland to begin with but soon I became engrossed in the story and the style simply emulated the world she has created.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves stories featuring technology, unusual love and adventure as Cel and Anna includes all of these, so entwined that it is barely noticable how the story slips from one to the other. I will definitely be reading anything else Lindsay Edmunds has to share.
