The Official Bio:
Lindsay A. Franklin is an award-winning author, award-winning freelance editor, and homeschooling mom of three. She would wear pajama pants all the time if it were socially acceptable. She spends a lot of time in made-up worlds, and she’s passionate about sparking imagination through stories of infinite possibility. Her debut fantasy novel, The Story Peddler, releases in 2018. When she’s not exploring the fantastical, she’s exploring the Bible and encouraging young women through her devotional books (click here for more information on Adored).
Lindsay lives in her native San Diego with her husband (master of the dad joke), their awesomely nerdy kids, two thunder pillows (AKA cats), and a stuffed wombat with his own Instagram following (@therealwombatman). You can find Lindsay on social media, too, if Wombatman hasn’t hijacked all her accounts. She’s @LinzyAFranklin on Instagram and Twitter, and she Facebooks at www.facebook.com/LindsayAFranklin.

Fun Facts from Lindsay:
- The first novel I wrote was about unicorns, dance camp, and an evil sorceress. I was eleven.
- I was a vegetarian from birth to twenty-three years old. I’ve eaten a total of two bites of hamburger and zero pieces of bacon in my life. It’s very un-American of me. But I still love food!

- Wombats and okapis are two of my favorite animals. We have them at our local zoo.

- I’m a theology nerd and a history buff. I watch a lot of documentaries.
- One of my nicknames is Flimsy Lindsay. It’s because I have hypermobility-type Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which is a rare genetic condition that causes my body to produce faulty collagen. My ligaments are loose and my joints dislocate easily. Flimsy Lindsay!
- I’m a cat person. My fur-babies are named Willow and Waffles and they’re littermates.
