Lindsey Elyse


To put me in a small nutshell, I read, write, love my tea, and tend to be my cat's pillow. Never thought I'd get into writing, much less love it, but here I am, scribbling in notebooks, living in these crazy made up worlds, and talking my boyfriend's ear off from time to time about some random storyline.

So far, my only published works are "Ghost" and "Bartender." Both are apart of the "Lost Gun" series I'm writing. "Ghost" has kind of become my baby and, despite beating him up a lot, I fell in love with my hitman. Here's to hoping y'all love Ghost as much as I do! And yes, he does have a name, you just have to read the story to discover said name. Samuel on the other hand, you'll first meet him in "Ghost" but his story is "Bartender" and he has no problem keeping things straight. Trust me, dude is a walking, uh, actually, I'll let you figure that one out.

What else? I'm a born and raised Texan. Practically raised in a barn, played soccer too much, and a lover of animals. If you met my cats, you'd see that they are the true rulers of my home. What's theirs is theirs and what's mine is theirs! For college, I practically ran to Ohio State University. Yes, ran. I'm not a big fan of the heat, snow is so much better! Besides, who could pass up a snowball fight and hot chocolate? During college, I ended up changing majors twice before settling in Human Development and Family Science, which, the best way I can describe it is, is like the theoretical side of growing up. I also minored in Design. After college, I managed to hide in Ohio for a couple years before pulling a long all-nighter driving back to Texas with a sleeping cat in the passenger seat. Since I've been back, I focused on my writing. A few lemons later, "Ghost" stumbled into my head and voila, now I'm here. As any good writer, I believe, I have a nasty addiction to coffee and tea. Another bad habit, staying up way too late since my best work is born in the middle of the night. Not that I mind, it's quiet, until one of my cats decides it's playtime.



Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
Honestly, I was terrified to show my work to anyone. I could talk about to random strangers online, but actually handing my story over to anyone, no way. So I guess I have to thank my boyfriend for my leap into becoming an author. A few months into dating I told him I wrote. He was interested. After getting comfortable and telling him more of the story, I swallowed my fear, shut my eyes, and shared my work with him. He liked it, a lot. Then I told him I had considered publishing, but never really made a move forward. Lots of encouragement later, here I am. Without him, I'd probably still be hiding under a rock.
When did you first start writing?
Never planned to write. It's actually a funny story how I stumbled into it. Back in college, an old roommate of mine decided to start a club, "Graphic Novel Club". It was about comic books and superheroes and the like. She asked me to go to help bump up awareness of this new "awesome" club. One day, we decided to have an activity, a character creation contest. Draw a few words then let the creative juices flow. My words were "evil", "light", and "squirrel". Considering the other combinations, I got off easy. The character I created was a vampire named Kali who had a pet squirrel. Creative, I know. Knowing that there would be bonus points for a backstory, I threw one together. Come time to reveal characters, we wanted to have a little fun and pretend that our characters were fighting each other. I made it to the final round, but lost to a narcissistic guy with a stomach that ate you, sending you to a gazebo world. Weird, but it was hilarious! After all that, I couldn't get Kali out of my head and started writing her story. That was when it first began. So, I guess I have to give a shout-out to Kate for getting me started. Thanks girl!
