Analyzing the World, with Yvonne Lindsay

A typical Piscean, Yvonne Lindsay, also an award-winning and USA Today bestselling author, has always preferred the stories in her head to the real world. Which makes sense since she was born in Middle Earth (that is, New Zealand). Married to her blind date sweetheart and with two adult children, she spends her days crafting the stories of her heart. In her spare time she can be found with her nose firmly in someone else’s book. Host Patricia McLinn talks with Yvonne about analyzing the world and how you can use it.

About the podcast

Authors Love Readers, hosted by USAToday bestselling author Patricia McLinn, is a weekly conversation between authors about how and why they create stories. With questions contributed by readers.

Quite a few podcasts are out there for aspiring and established writers, both on the craft and the business. This podcast, though, is for readers. The goal is to have authors on the show who write in all sorts of fiction genres. As a reader, it doesn’t matter which path to publication an author takes – independent, traditional, hybrid and other combinations. That’s not going to matter on Authors Love Readers, either.

About your host

Patricia McLinn is the author of about 45 novels, including her ongoing murder mystery series, Caught Dead in Wyoming. She also writes romances – mostly contemporary, but there are a few historicals, women’s fiction and non-fiction titles. She had 27 books in 25 years in traditional publishing. Having secured the rights back to a number of her earlier books, she began indie publishing in early 2010. That made her officially a hybrid author, since she also still had books under traditional contracts. In mid-2015 she left the final traditional publisher and has been happily 100% independent since.
