Milledgeville author publishes first novel, seventh book

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

Lindsley said her passion for pen and paper really began after winning her first writing award as a middle schooler.

“I enjoy writing because you can create people that can do what you want them to do,” she said. “The first time I won an award for writing was for an essay I wrote about Maj. Gen. John Brown Gordon on the Confederacy. I also entered a poem contest at Mercer University when I was a junior, and I won.”

Lindsley’s first published book, “O Yesterplace: And other poems,” was self-published as a limited edition in 2000. 

Her second book, titled “Yesterplace,” was initially published by Old Capital Press. It was republished by ThomasMax Publishing and the book title was changed to “Blue Jeans and Pantaloons in Yesterplace.”

As a niece of Susan Myrick, Lindsley has also written a biography about her aunt’s memories and personal diary entries and letters that were given to her after Myrick’s death. The biography, “Susan Myrick of Gone With the Wind” allows the reader to know a little bit more about the iconic film, “Gone With the Wind,” and it explores the friendship between Myrick and Margaret Mitchell, or Peggy, as Myrick knew her.

She is currently in the midst of printing a limited edition of a compilation of her father’s literary works titled “Luther Campbell Lindsley of the College of William and Mary: His Literary Works.”
