Born and raised in sunny California, Lindsay decided to try snow and moved to upstate New York where she received her BFA in Illustration from Syracuse University. After bouncing around a bit in New York and Boston, she landed in Ohio (for the love of her life of course!) Her most recent books include Rosie Stronger Than Steel, This Book Is Gray and the Amazon Bestselling Dexter T. Rexter series: Vacation for Dexter!, It’s Show and Tell, Dexter! and Don’t Forget Dexter! (Two Lions).
She is also the author of Brobarians (Two Lions, 2017), The Importance of Being 3 (Dial, 2016), Rosco vs. the Baby (S&S, 2016), Henry Finds His Word (Dial, 2015), a Choose to Read Ohio Book, When Blue Met Egg (Dial, 2012), and Please Bring Balloons (Dial, 2013), which was produced into a play by the New York City Children’s Theater in 2017. Her work has been reviewed in Kirkus Reviews, Publisher’s Weekly, and The New York Times.
In 2017, Lindsay founded Critter Lit, a free online picture book manuscript and illustration critique service for up-and-coming authors and illustrators, which she co-runs with her husband, author Frank Tupta.
Lindsay lives in Peninsula, Ohio, just south of Cleveland, with Frank, their three boys, and Sally, a rambunctious pit-bull\lab mix who keeps things interesting. Most days you can find her sketching and writing in her studio or editing manuscripts for Critter Lit.
