Lindsey Mackie

Lindsey Mackie left her native Yorkshire to study English at the University of East Anglia where she met her husband David. She now lives in Buckinghamshire.

Her first novel ASO is a chilling account of the future. Shades of Iain M Banks and Yevgeny Ivanovich Zamyatin and The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. Set broadcasts, that all have to watch, the Magnamater Big Brother. The year is 2050. [see BCID 6787202]

ASO grew out of a short story 'Olim', the result of a trip to Norfolk. A powerful first novel.

An earlier short story 'Glory Hole' won the 'Adfam' writing competition. It was published in The Guardian in 2002 and read by Martha Kearney at St Brides in December of the same year.

Lindsey Mackie is not just a novelist and writer of short stories, she is also a talented musician. The CD entitled ASO that accompanies ASO is an album of her music. Music written by Lindsey and David Mackie.

A copy of ASO has been registered as a BookCrossing book.

BookCrossing books are released into the wild and their progress tracked through the Internet via a unique Book Crossing ID (BCID).
