From May through July, the Mesa Public Library is hosting author and writing coach Randy Lindsay as its very own Writer in Residence. Randy will use the library as his workspace and hold one-on-one consultation hours to help aspiring authors fine-tune their work. Consultations may be held by phone, email, or Zoom, as arranged with Randy.  To book your appointment, visit our sign-up form.

He is a past president of the American Night Writers Association; has co-hosted a podcast (So You Think You Can Write) and an annual all-day writers workshop (Ready, Set, Write) with other authors; and is a regular visitor to several local writers' groups, where he is happy to help new authors hone their craft.
