Hello There! Welcome to my blog


I’m Lindsay Nell, a 25 year old self-published author and blogger originally from Cape Town, South Africa.


I live with my husband (affectionately known as Mr), our son (Little One – 3 years old) and our two huskies (Sam – 18 months old and Max – 16 months old).

I’m also a step mother to a beautiful daughter (Madam – 10 years old).


I’ve always been passionate about reading and writing and I was finally able to follow my dreams in 2015 when I published my first children’s book Adventurous Alex: What Can I Be? This snowballed into 28 other published titles so far.

I started this blog to tell my story, inspire, motivate and share some freebies along the way.

I hope that I can inspire others who want to write and publish their own books to take a leap of faith.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Lindsay, first off, I am in love with your dogs! They are beyond adorable 😊 More importantly, I’ve just checked out your books (28 published is pretty freaking impressive!) and I adore your illustration! In fact I adore everything about them. Dancersaur is amazing!!! (I don’t even have kids!) Xxx
