Hello! I’m K. Lee, mom by day aspiring author by night. I live in the DFW area with my family (husband, two crazy kids, and two shelter mutts).
My Journey Into Writing:
I’ve always enjoyed writing.
In the fourth grade I had to stay after school to finish my writing TAKS test and ended up with a score of 4/4. I felt like I won the lottery. My teacher told me how proud she was that I didn’t rush and made the comment she would use me as an example for as long as she was teaching.
In college English I wrote a paper I was somewhat disappointed in, knowing I could do better, and yet my teacher asked if she could use it as a sample to her other classes because it was the best she’d read in years. I’ve always been, and will always be, a horrible compliment taker.
When I began blogging letters to my daughter I was surprised to find other people were reading and enjoying them.
Writing was always a part of my life, but I never planned to do anything with it. I never thought I could do anything with it.
December 2016 I quit my full-time job of 5 years with no plan in place for the future.
My husband asked what I wanted to do next and my response was literally:
“I think I’ll write a book.”
So I did.
I joined a critique group, I connected with other young adult romance authors, and I wrote non-stop.
The result exactly one year later was You Will Never Be Him.
Now I know, no matter what the result, I can never stop writing.
