Lindsey Cowherd


Lindsey Cowherd lives in Salida, CO, where she was born and raised. She lives with her sweetie, Michael, who somehow tolerates her horse-craziness and love of all-things-Asian.

Licensed as an acupuncturist since 2010, Lindsey still finds time for the small stuff: writing, watching almost anything Asian on Netflix, singing and playing guitar, but especially enjoying her two horses, Bricco and Tyrra, and two dogs, Ms. K and Huffington.

She started writing “novels” at a young teen; the Assassins' Guild books being among the first she ever thought up that was beyond her normal obsession of horses. Turning to a world immersed in martial arts, magic, and “places not of this world” allowed her an outlet from everyday living and circumstances out of her control. Now, they are a place to allow her imagination to run wild. In 2019, Lindsey delved into the genre of cowboy romances and found she liked it just as much. With so many possibilities it keeps her worlds alive and growing.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing in fourth grade...or at least my first "novel"; it was one hundred pages. I thought it was quite a feat back then! My first two books, the Crystals of Syre and the Assassins' Guild: The Cost of Redemption, I started when I was fifteen. I stopped the Assassins' Guild to go back and write the back story Visions of a Torn Land. It felt like something I needed to do. I completed that book while still in acupuncture school....Christmas of 2012. I celebrated that book's completion more than any other... the Assassins' Guild books are my "babies", the ones I was more reluctant to share...
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes! I was convinced I was going to be a jockey (horse racing) when I grew up, so around age 10 my obsession was with all things Kentucky Derby-like. My first book was about a race horse. Black, of course! I had a full series planned out. Actually, I think I did pretty well considering my age...maybe I should look into a children's series like that again...uh, or not.
