Pennsylvania native Lindsay Faith Rech was born in Philadelphia and has lived in the quiet suburb of Holland since she was nine. Lindsay studied theater and writing at Rider University in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, graduating with honors just five months before her wedding day.

Secretly devoting time to a novel between the wedding planning and house hunting, Lindsay found work as an assistant editor for a chain of local newsmagazines. She also wrote her own column for a weekly New Jersey paper. Her “secret novel,” LOSING IT, was eventually picked up by Red Dress Ink and released in 2003. Her second novel, JOYRIDE, hit bookshelves in 2004 and was recently published in digital format.

In September 2010, Lindsay's long-awaited third novel, IT STARTED WITH A DARE, was released by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's teen imprint, Graphia. This book marked her first foray into young adult fiction. It has been picked up by an overseas publisher for Hungarian translation and has also been named a Young Adults' Choice for 2011 by the International Reading Association. In early 2o12, Lindsay donated a signed copy to Learning Lab's 18th annual Lunch for Literacy and Book Auction fund raiser, aimed to improve the literacy skills of under-educated individuals and families, alongside donors like Dean Koontz, Stephen King, and John Grisham.

Lindsay has been profiled in WHO’S WHO IN AMERICA, WHO’S WHO OF AMERICAN WOMEN, "Writer's Digest," CONTEMPORARY AUTHORS, and WHO’S WHO OF EMERGING LEADERS, and was featured, alongside several other authors, in THE HEART OF COOKING, a charity cookbook to benefit special needs children.

In addition to writing, Lindsay works as a proofreader for a nonprofit educational company. She and her husband Scott are parents to a five-year-old girl and six-month-old baby boy. While Lindsay has always taken great pride in her novels, she says motherhood is her proudest accomplishment and her children, Jayla and Lucas, by far her most impressive creations.
