Lindsay Pettee – Some call it multiple personality disorder but Lindsay is convinced that her simultaneous desires to live at Thornfield Hall, attend Rydell High, and spend the weekends in Atlantis are all the product of too much unsupervised library time as a child. When she is not lost in some Gothic labyrinth, Lindsay tries to spend as much time (and savings) as possible exploring her Australian heritage by devouring the native literature and traveling. Aside from her penchant for literary research, she actually enjoys her day job and can mostly be found underwater on the weekends. Driven by the fear of ennui, she has tried everything from trapeze to Irish dance and hopes to one day record her experiences when she manages to sit down long enough.
