Welcome to Slant! I’m Lindsay – a writer, reader, tutor, community writing teacher, and best of all, mom to two splendid little girls. Around here you’ll find all kinds of things having to do with interesting words and fantastic stories, whether it’s novels, picture books, movies, history, or the stories every ordinary person has to tell. Come along for great recommendations and reviews, posts on the writing life, the hilarity of parenthood, and all things wordy. And don’t forget to comment and add your slant to the conversation, because I really don’t want to do all the talking!
