About LindsayM

Lindsay Maloan is a Jill of All Trades. She can take purty pictures, arrange the snot out of some flowers, sew a dinosaur hoodie for your wee T-Rex, and she knows most of the words to “Baby Got Back.” If you are lost in the woods, Lindsay won’t help you survive, but she can name the tree you lay down to die under. A former zookeeper and current public servant, she’s familiar with all the stops on the crazy train. A good thing, too, considering she’s got twin girls baking in the old lovin’ oven. She lives in New Orleans with her husband, preschooler son, and dogs. You can find more of her many words and deeds on her blog, With A Little Love and Luck.
