About the Author
Lindsey spent the last 20+ years building businesses overseas, giving him a unique insight into different cultures and ways of life. Not only did he serve as Asia-Pacific CEO of a Fortune 500 company, but he also co-founded an eminently successful fast-food enterprise in China. Today, he has a thriving practice as a corporate consultant, life coach, and mentor to CEO’s and business owners across the globe.
Nothing prepared him better for the literary career ahead of him than the failure of his parents’ marriage when he was a teenager, and the failure of his own first marriage when he was in his twenties. These events, coupled with decades working on being happily married and raising three beautiful children, led Lindsey to write his debut novel dealing with human connection, passion, and the extreme consequences we, as a humans, are willing to risk to find that perfect love.
If his early life and reading prepared Lindsey to write, it was a chance meeting that was the catalyst for The Hunger & The Hunted. Each year, Lindsey and his life-long friend take a road trip to a part of the United States they have not seen before, each driving their own Porsche 911 cabriolet. On one of these trips several years ago, they stopped for dinner. Offered a table next to the kitchen, they opted instead to sit at the bar. Seated by two women, they did what strangers often do – started a conversation. A proposition from one of the women at the end of the evening – politely refused – led the two married men to discussing what would make a man accept such an offer and make him cheat. And the idea for a book was born.
Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?
The book is about abusive relationships and the resultant, very human, vulnerabilities the characters succumb to – with devastating consequences.
Qn 2: Who do you think would be interested in this book, is it directed at any particular market?
Anyone interested in romantic thrillers. A great book for couples to read too.
Qn 3: What guidance would you offer to someone new, or trying to enhance their writing?
Approach your work as an educational project (you actually have no choice as a rookie author) and get knowledgeable help at every quarter. I started by consulting with a very well-known book coach who guided me and gave me priceless advice.
Create a routine of transition that gets your mind ready to create. For me, I would without exception, sit down at my chosen desk at the library overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and pull out a crossword puzzle and work on it for 20-30 minutes. This seemed to get my mind clear, my vocabulary focused, and my thoughts fluid to the art I was penning.
