Lyndsay Faye

USA flag

Lyndsay Faye moved to Manhattan in 2005 to audition for work as a professional actress; she found her days more open when the powers that be elected to knock her day-job restaurant down with bulldozers. Lyndsay and her husband Gabriel Lehner live just north of Harlem with their cats, Grendel and Prufrock. During the few hours a day Lyndsay isn’t writing or editing, she is most often cooking, or sampling new kinds of microbrew, or thinking of ways to creatively mismatch her clothing. She is a very proud member of AEA, ASH, and BSI (Actor’s Equity Association, the Adventuresses of Sherlock Holmes, and the Baker Street Irregulars, respectively).

Lyndsay Faye recommends
The Murder of Mr. Ma (2024)
John Shen Yen Nee and S J Rozan
"Fans of Sherlock Holmes, devotees of intricate crime, and lovers of historical London will thrill over The Murder of Mr. Ma, the new gift to mystery readers bestowed by John Shen Yen Nee and SJ Rozan. With a plot as clever as Chinese veteran of WWI turned independent investigator Dee, and pacing as light-footed as the martial artists engaged in the frequent fisticuffs, this case has it all - even romance and authentic food, if you can stomach such things. I'm only miffed because I don't know when the next in the series will land on my doorstep."
The Secrets of Hartwood Hall (2023)
Katie Lumsden
"The Secret of Hartwood Hall is exactly the book you want on a cold, stormy night when the wind is sneaking in the cracks. A thoroughly impressive debut with fantastically timed surprises throughout."
Vicious Creatures (2022)
Ashton Noone
"VICIOUS CREATURES is a fantastic debut, full of tense domestic anger and the highest of stakes. It is un-putdownable in the best way, and I only hope the author writes another such wonderful venture quickly."
