Lindsey Lane is the author of young adult novel Evidence of Things Not Seen, (Farrar Straus Giroux), picture book and iTunes app Snuggle Mountain, and her short stories have been published in the literary journal, Hunger Mountain. She earned her BA in Theater Arts from Hampshire College and her MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from the Vermont College of Fine Arts.

As a child, the world Lindsey Lane entered over and over again was Anna Sewell’s Black Beauty because it told the truth about love and cruelty—two impossible roommates in the human heart. It should be no surprise to learn that her debut Evidence of Things Not Seen wrestles with similar themes as well as examines the existence of all possibilities and the twisty pathway of faith.

She’s spoken at the Texas Book Festival and moderated for the Writers’ League of Texas. She’s also had the honor of helping to administer and create the Betty X. Davis Young Writers of Merit Award, named after one of the chapters’ oldest supporters.

Lindsey lives in South Austin with her beautiful daughter Gabi and her beloved dog Sombre and wily cats Trouble and Kiki.
