Linsey is a 28 year-old writer who teaches high school English because she gets a free laptop for doing so. She’s traveled: France, Germany, Italy, Greece, Spain and Costa Rica, all of which gave her the itch to get the hell out of dodge for an extended period of time.

She is planning a year trek around the world, volunteering in five countries and keeping her eye out for old ladies who need a hand with a bag in other countries.

Linsey has a finished manuscript, Wild Mustard, a chapter of which won Editor’s Chocie Award at the San Diego State Writing Conference. She hopes to sell Wild Mustard for an exhorbitant amount before she leaves on her trip, but is well aware that it will probably sit in a cardboard box in public storage for the year she is gone.

She is planning on turning her travelouge into a memoir and selling that for an exhorbitant amount, too.

    Haha, Dear Linsey is just looking out there for money!

    Should give her a free lift so she can extend her trip! 🙂

    Still waiting for the paperback version of Wild mustard!

    Cheers Oli

      Hi Valli!

      Thanks for checking out the website–now Nik’s on it too! We had a great time together, as you can tell by the photos. We’ll have to stop by your house on our little road trip when I come back home. 🙂

      Merry Christmas and tell Tim I say hi!
