About Me (the short version)

Lindsay Brambles was born in Ottawa, Canada in 1959. In ‘68 his father, an electrical engineer, signed on for a job overseas. Thus began a decade of living and traveling in countries such as Pakistan, Iran, and Tanzania.

After grade three, his formal education was largely through the Ontario Ministry of Education correspondence course. He has spent most of his post-academic life in a variety of unrelated jobs, ranging from construction to childcare, all while pursuing a vocation as an artist.


When not engaged in the literary arts, painting, or earning money in less creative pursuits, Lindsay enjoys anything fitness related, collecting Gold Key comics and motion picture soundtracks, tinkering with computers, and just about anything that will expand his awareness of the world around him. Passionate about all science, he is especially interested in astronomy, cosmology, and quantum mechanics.


Lindsay has completed a follow-up novel to Becoming Darkness (and two thirds of a third novel) as well as a YA SF thriller set thirty years in the future (and its sequel) and a YA contemporary told from the perspective of a teenage girl trying to hold her family together as the deal with an ailing parent's early onset Alzheimer's.
