Lee is a professor of education at a small New England liberal arts college where she teaches reading and writing pedagogy. Her current research focuses on mindfulness and connections to reading and writing. She regularly teaches abroad, most recently in Singapore. Lee has lived in southern California (loved those Laguna nights), Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and various spots in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Currently, she resides on the river, where she canoes and swims daily. She is the mother of two grown sons, and spends lots of time with them, their beautiful wives and her three extraordinary grandchildren. She lost her buddy, Rosie (15-year-old golden retriever) last summer and is still looking for her successor. If anyone knows a dog with the sweet temperament of a golden, but half the size, do let her know. Recently, Lee has become obsessed by the triolet and sonnet, forms she never thought she would/could write! She uses these poetic structures to bring life and authenticity to her fiction. Her life passions revolve around family, yoga (Kripalu is a second home), swimming, bouncing, and walking. Lee loves to hear from readers.
