Thanks for visiting!
Lindsay DeFrates is a work in progress. Here’s what we know so far…

She lives in Glenwood Springs, Colorado where she and her husband wrangle their three kids and one-eyed dog into the backcountry and down the rivers of western Colorado and eastern Utah. Lindsay currently works as a freelance writer in the outdoor adventure industry when not teaching at the local community college.

She has written several short stories, and is currently revising her science fiction novel, Windward.

Her speculative fiction draws heavily from her life experience in the rugged land of wilderness and motherhood.

None of her characters are unscathed by the harsh reality of the elements of the natural world, nor do any of them live simple lives without the beautiful mess of family, past or present.

We have an unknown distance yet to run, an unknown river to explore. What falls there are, we know not; what rocks beset the channel, we know not; what walls ride over the river, we know not. Ah, well! we may conjecture many things.

Don’t Think.
