An English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay's the English teacher cliché; she love cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe.

She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.

Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at

I try to make myself write everyday, even if I don't feel uninspired.

Here is the Drunk Elephant Alternative You Must Try Now

Picture Quality, affordable skincare Up until November, I was all for the Drunk Elephant line of skin care. These all natural, cruelty free products really did make my skin seem smoother, brighter, and better. 

But then in November, my husband lost his job and I could no longer afford the HEFTY price tag that came with Drunk Elephant products. I was devastated, certain my skin would fall prey to wrinkles Read more of this blog post »

I read a Charles Martin book, Where The River Ends, years ago. I adored his emotional writing and ability to capture genuine, sweet love. As a fan of Nicholas Sparks, I found his writing similar.

The Widow Next Door by L.A. Detwiler
"3.5 Stars. Oh my goodness, if it wasn’t for the homicidal tendencies, the main character could have been my grandmother! I was actually going to put it down & move on to another book but I’m glad I stuck with it.... you never really know what goes on" Read more of this review »
The Widow Next Door by L.A. Detwiler
"I absolutely loved this book.
The story was gripping from the start with the main character living next to a young couple who have just moved into the neighbourhood.
The story is very tense from the start, beautifully written and told from the elderly " Read more of this review »

“No matter where I am in my life, no matter what I am doing, I will never be far from you in my heart. I may be moving on, but I’m not moving away from you. You will always be in my soul, a part of my present, and a fleeting dream for my future." ~Emma Ranstein”
Lindsay Detwiler, Voice of Innocence

“I will never forget the way that my hand felt in yours, the way that your lips awoke a sense of vibrancy in the depths of my soul. I will never forget the joys in the simplicity of our moments together. I will never settle for anything less than what we had."~Emma Ranstein”
Lindsay Detwiler

“No matter how far apart we may be, no matter what dreams we may chase after individually, I want you to know that you will always be my first priority. I will always, always love you.”

“Charlotte didn’t care. She was floating away in a sea of happiness, wrapped up in the beauty of second love.”
Lindsay Detwiler, Then Comes Love

“Life, as I’ve learned, fails to be a concrete, concise package that can easily be wrapped up and contained. Life is full of messy, unpredictable circumstances that test not only our characters, but the people around us as well. Our choices are not always about choosing between right and wrong, good or bad. They are sometimes about following the path that you simply have to follow, for one reason or another.”
Lindsay Detwiler, Voice of Innocence

“No matter how hard you try to be a good person, to make choices that will lead to success, nothing is promised. Even the good and the innocent are damned from time to time.”
Lindsay Detwiler, Voice of Innocence

“Nonetheless, love is a funny thing. More specifically, second loves are a funny thing. For no matter how special that second or third or even fourth love is, no matter how much you can’t live without him, the first one always creeps in.”
Lindsay Detwiler, Voice of Innocence

“Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”
Oscar Wilde, The Critic as Artist
