As a tween, Lyndi walked miles to borrow books from the bookmobile and found quiet places to read them. Now she writes stories for young readers and adults. Her best ideas come to her as she walks the beach, bathes in the forests, and hikes in the mountains.
A retired high school teacher and community youth volunteer, Lyndi moved with her husband to Panama where she hosts writing workshops and retreats in nature and at Tranquilo Retreat.
While stargazing around a campfire, many children and teens shared the grief they carried. Lyndi was struck by how challenging it is to help youth who grieve and was inspired to write The Summer Triangle Trilogy and The Winter Hexagon Trilogy
Lyndi was a member of the 2010 short-form cohort.
