Linsey was born and raised in Nebraska, where she still lives and homeschools her six children with her entrepreneur husband. When she's not enjoying the beautiful Missouri River bottom landscape you can find her reading weird short stories, playing the piano, and recreating the Danish recipes her grandmother made long ago.

I spend most of my day working on freelance projects, cooking, caring for the kids, homeschooling, and the day-to-day, all while having these ideas perculating in my brain.

For the non-fiction stuff, like my homeschool books and articles, I jot down notes when I can. For fiction stuff, like my horror or dark fiction, I try to take voice notes with my phone so I can articulate the mood or vibe I want to convey.

It may take a few hours or even a day before I can sit down and get to work, but I can usually pick up where my brain was when it got a great "aha" moment and get it written. My best ideas are still in the shower. I don't think I'm alone with that trend. (less)

I grew tired of hearing some of the falsehoods that became really popular around homeschooling. Things like "homeschoolers don't know how to socialize" or "you can't homeschool in high school" made me want to tear my hair out! When the pandemic forced a lot of families to rethink education, and homeschooling became a hot topic again, I found myself answering the same questions over and over, as well as dispelling so many of those old myths. I guess you could say that the timing was right for this book to finally be written, especially with so many parents scrambling to figure out their educational plan during so many school closures.

The crisp writing kept me going through about a third of the book, but I just couldn't take how passive the characters were in allowing such evil to work its way into their lives. At any point, if even one character acted like they would stand
