Lindsey Grant was the NaNoWriMo program director at the Office of Letters and Light. She completed her undergraduate education in her home state of Georgia[1] and earned an MFA degree in creative writing from Mills College[2]. She then joined OLL as the first community liaison and participated in her first NaNoWriMos and Script Frenzies, completing the challenge each time. When Chris Baty took on the executive director position full-time in summer 2010, Lindsey became the new NaNoWriMo program director[3]. Nancy Smith joined the OLL staff and took over the community liaison post[4].

After NaNoWriMo 2012 Lindsey stepped down in order to pursue a full-time writing career and a move to Switzerland. Chris Angotti took over as Director of Programs.

Lindsey co-authored Ready, Set, Novel!. Her nonfiction book about her adventures as an animal nanny, Sleeps with Dogs: Tales of a Pet Nanny at the End of Her Leash, was released in fall 2014[5].

At some point in the past Lindsey earned money by walking dogs, as detailed in her book. She enjoys writing, food, traveling, and anything that will combine those activities[2]. She shares a love of Disney music with Sarah Mackey[6].

Lindsey served as a NaNo Coach during NaNoWriMo 2014.
