I REALLY struggle to referring to myself in the third person (Lee likes biking, Lee’s quite the cocktail connoisseur), so since this is a long bio, I hope you don’t mind if I switch this to first. I’ve wanted to write for as long as I can remember, but it wasn’t until law school that I got my act together started writing everyday. I wrote my first (rambling, incoherent, 130,000 word) novel during early mornings and weekends while I was working as an entertainment lawyer in Los Angeles. When I transferred to the New York office, I put that manuscript clunker in a drawer and started writing a different story. That story eventually became my first novel, City of Savages.
Since then, my family has moved to Millburn, New Jersey- but Manhattan will always hold a special place in my heart. As anyone who reads City of Savages will likely glean, I had quite a love-hate relationship with it.
Now, I spend my days toggling between writing and hanging out with my two-and-a-half year old Penn Joseph, a little wild-man who’s pretty much the best thing that’s ever happened to me. My husband (and best friend) Jeff and I spend our nights and weekends heading to our favorite restaurants and the local park with Penn, watching House of Cards and True Detective, and talking about working out…though sometimes we actually do get on our bikes.
