Lee’s university education involved a Bachelor of Arts with First Class Honours, majoring in Creative Writing and English Literature; after which people were convinced that a promising career at MacDonald’s was on the cards. Instead Lee went on to post-graduate work with a PhD thesis on the influence of the occult on Romantic period literature, and began living as the opposite sex. Throughout these years that could best be described as 'colorful' Lee held onto the dream of being a writer and has still managed to avoid a career in fast food! A deeply spiritual person Lee now uses the traditional term 'Two Spirited' to explain her state of spiritual androgyny. A commitment to pagan and animistic world-views underpins all of Lee's work both in non-fiction and fiction.
