Mary Lindsey is My Rockstar

 Mary Lindsey is My Rockstar

Today I have the absolute pleasure of hosting the awesome Mary Lindsey for the Authors Are Rockstars tour. I am SO excited that I got chosen to host Mary because she is the best. Honestly, she is like the superwoman of the author world! She’s my rockstar because she writes the most amazing stories and she is the sweetest person ever. The first time we met each other we were in New Orleans for ALA and she went up to me and gave me the biggest hug and we chatted over dinner about basically everything. This was about a year ago and we have become great friends since then. In all honesty, I feel like we’re kind of family in a way. I know, it’s weird but Mary Lindsey just has this way of making you feel like you’re best friends! I love her. icon smile Mary Lindsey is My Rockstar On top of that, her next book Ashes on the Waves, based on Edgar Allan Poe’s “Annabel Lee” poem, is extraordinary and she worked so hard on it! It is going to be awesome so be on the lookout for it next summer. icon smile Mary Lindsey is My Rockstar

Mary, with the help of the awesome Penguin team and her daughter Hannah, recorded a super hilarious and cute video for everyone. icon smile Mary Lindsey is My Rockstar It is adorable and I hope you guys love it!! Thanks to Hannah for her mad editing skills! She did a great job.

 Mary Lindsey is My RockstarAbout Mary Lindsey

Mary’s writing is a natural expression of her love of reading and a fascination with the flexibility of the human imagination. Books make the impossible possible.

Prior to attending University of Houston Law School, Mary received a B.A. in English Literature with a minor in Drama from the University of Houston. She has taught drama and playwriting in a large public high school and English in a private school. Currently, Mary teaches acting to children and teens at a private studio in Houston, Texas.

She is represented by Ammi-Joan Paquette of the Erin Murphy Literary Agency.

Mary lives in Houston with her husband, three kids, two dogs, her daughter’s pet rats, an Australian Bearded Dragon and dozens of Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. (The roaches are long story—don’t ask.)

A thrilling debut story of death, love, destiny and danger

Lenzi hears voices and has visions – gravestones, floods, a boy with steel gray eyes. Her boyfriend, Zak, can’t help, and everything keeps getting louder and more intense. Then Lenzi meets Alden, the boy from her dreams, who reveals that she’s a reincarnated Speaker – someone who can talk to and help lost souls – and that he has been her Protector for centuries.

Now Lenzi must choose between her life with Zak and the life she is destined to lead with Alden. But time is running out: a malevolent spirit is out to destroy Lenzi, and he will kill her if she doesn’t make a decision soon.
