Lyndsay Faye's picture

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).

The House of Velvet and Glass (2012)
(Lost Book of Salem, book 2)
Katherine Howe
"The House of Velvet and Glass is an intricate and intimate family portrait, painted against a backdrop of beautifully rendered tales of colonialist Shanghai, the wreck of the Titanic, and upper-crust Boston dabblers in the spirit world in the uneasy days preceding the Great War. I'd ask Katherine Howe for more than this, but it seems churlish to request that she turn the pages for me."

The Silent Companions (2017)
Laura Purcell
"If The Silent Companions lands on your night table, don't plan on leaving your bed anytime soon. Immersive, meticulous, and reminiscent of the masters of gothic fiction - not only a compulsively readable ghost story, but a skillful, loving ode to the entire genre."
