Petite and a bit quiet, Lindsay Smith has a mysterious vibe. And once she starts talking, it only gets more interesting! YA’s John le Carré, Lindsay is a history buff who is fluent in Russian, and her debut novel, SEKRET, and its follow-up, SKANDAL (due in April 2015 from Roaring Brook Press) explore what would happen if Russia were hiding paranormally-enhanced super-humans behind the iron curtain during the Cold War. Pretty awesome stuff. Lindsay invited me over to talk 20th century politics, the round-the-clock nature of D.C.’s creative types, and the sheer terror of trying to write for adults.
