Lindsey McDivitt


Lindsey McDivitt began life in South Africa and an early move to Minnesota did not result in a passion for winter sports. However, her happy place is the Minnesota State Fair in August. After many years in healthcare, working with survivors of stroke, Lindsey writes fiction and non-fiction picture books. (She is still searching for a way to insert her childhood research on Puritan names such as Pete and RePete (twins), Tenacious, and Dust.) Lindsey loves writing about people’s late life accomplishments and she believes we all need positive realistic images of aging, even as children. Nature’s Friend: The Gwen Frostic Story was published in 2018 and Truth and Honor: The President Ford Story comes out in July 2020. She is repped by Kelly Dyksterhouse.

Fun Fact: I’m generally easygoing, but three things make me cranky! Ageist jokes, no milk for my tea, and neglected young trees in the city.
