L. R. W. Lee enjoys writing epic fantasy and as such has authored the seven book, award-winning Andy Smithson series (MG/YA coming of age) and is currently working on a new series, The Sand Maiden (NA epic fantasy romance with YA appeal). She loves writing fantasy because her characters are everything she's not in real life. For example, L. R. W. can't handle scary movies, Stephen King novels, or cockroaches. And she knows she wouldn't last long in one of her books. But give her a drink and a Hawaiian sunset and she'll be just fine. She lives in scenic Austin, TX with her wonderful husband.
