Lindsay Ford is the author and illustrator for Bread + Clutter Books: A revolutionary children’s book series that is changing the way we think of the world, and the people in it.
The Awkward + Awesome children’s book series celebrates real people and their uniquely amazing stories, however strange or odd they may be. Stories of unsuspecting, unlikely heroes who manage to change the world we live in just by being themselves and owning their inner weirdos.
Lindsay is continually inspired by mental health education and local news stories involving everyday people. The ones that are told they’re too crazy, too weird, too strange, too out-of-this-world. The underdog, the janitor, the wild girl, the pretty boy, the bin diver, the anxious, the sad, the nutty, the bizarre, the tattooed, the pink, the blue, the grey. Regular people. People just like you and me.
Every book is made with the hopes of starting an important conversation. Each story speaks to a world where it’s okay to be weird and wonderful. The Awkward + Awesome book series celebrates the weirdo in all of us.
Lindsay calls Nanaimo, Vancouver Island home, where she creates books, teaches International English, and raises her daughter. To find out more about what Lindsay is doing and to hear more about the books she is making find her on Instagram or Facebook @breadandclutter.
