Lindsay de Feliz was born, raised and educated in the UK, gaining a degree in French and German at Wolverhampton University, and an MBA at Bradford University. Following a successful career in marketing she decided to leave it all behind and follow her dreams. Arriving in the Dominican Republic as a scuba diving instructor, for a six-month contract, she ended up staying and married a Dominican, becoming a stepmother to three young boys. She was then shot in her own home during a burglary and, following a long fight against corruption along with her husband, left the life of an expat in a tourist resort to live, first, in a Dominican town and then in the mountains. Lindsay published the highly successful memoir, What About Your Saucepans? in 2013 - about the first ten years of her life in the Dominican Republic - and now lives high up in the Dominican mountains, on a small farm, with her husband Danilo, three dogs, two cats, one permanent and one temporary foster child and too many chickens to count. She works as a writer, translator and marketing consultant. Lindsay writes a blog about the Dominican Republic and daily life at: www.yoursaucepans.blogspot.com.
