Hello Stirlingites!
Today we have an interview from ...USA! 

Rene
Welcome to our Interview, would you please introduce yourself?
Maureen
My name is Maureen but I'm known by mrnlandis.
Rene
Which Country are you from?
Maureen
I'm from Michigan, the Great Lakes State.
Rene
A short introduction about yourself?
Maureen
I'm 57, a little older than most Stirlingites and LOVE this community. There are so many wonderful people here. I'm happily married with two beautiful, grown sons. I also have two rescue dogs, Chewie and Lola. I love to bike ride and spend as much time as possible with family and friends.
Rene
When did you learn about Lindsey or started listening to her music?
Maureen
Around 2014 my oldest son started telling me he had this girl he wanted me to listen to, how great she was, just amazing. I kept putting it off. I finally watched Lindsey on YouTube and have been a huge fan and supporter ever since. I wish I had listened sooner.
Rene
Are you a Stirlingite?
Maureen
I am most definitely a Stirlingite, and very happy to be one.
Rene
When did you switch from simply listening to the music to beeing a fan?
Maureen
From the first minute I heard Lindsey I was hooked for life. I watched all her videos, listened to her songs whenever I could.
Rene
Did you read the book?How did you like it?
Maureen
I have read the book, several times and also listened to the audio version. I think hearing Lindsey speak the words adds great emotion to it.
Rene
Does Lindsey have a special place in your life ?
Maureen
Lindsey does have a special place in my heart. She is so inspirational and caring towards everyone. Two things I have tried harder to be because of her. Also, I gave my niece TOPATP as a Christmas gift and it helped her tremendously. She also had an eating disorder and after reading the book decided to follow Lindsey's lead. I'm thankful to say she is much better now.
Rene
How did you like the Documentary ?
Maureen
The documentary was great. It was such a roller coaster of emotions. I give Lindsey a lot of credit for being so open and honest about her life. She has helped so many people because of who she is and how she is.
Rene
What are your three favorite tracks from Lindsey ?
Maureen
My three favorites are Those Days, Moon Trance, and Firefly. But I love them all.
Rene
Have you been to a concert?
Maureen
I've been to two concerts and was very lucky to have seen Gavi perform once. I just love him. So funny, goofy, and talented.
Rene
Have you attended a meet&greet?
Maureen
I attended one m&g and loved it! She was so friendly and sincere. Lindsey gives great hugs. I took a present but it was only kind of for Lindsey. I took a duffle bag full of things for Luna. Toys, a blanket, sweaters.
Rene
Three favorites of you!
Maureen
I love chocolate, anything Harry Potter and baseball.
Rene
What music do you listen to if not from Lindsey?
Maureen
Il Volo, Celine Dion, Amy Grant and Disney music.
Rene
A personal shoutout to Lindsey?
Maureen
Lindsey, thank you so much for all you do for your fans. From giving us great music, videos, being accessible on social media and really caring about people. You are a bright light in a dark world. Please keep staying true to yourself.
Rene
Another shoutout to the others of the band&crew?
Maureen
I met Drew and Kit at the meet and greet also. They were so nice, funny, and didn't act like they couldn't wait to get out of there. Great guys.
Rene
Do you make Fanart?
Maureen
I don't make fanart. I really wish I could. Unfortunately I can't even make a good stick man. I love looking at other peoples art. There are so many talented people in this group.
Rene
