Lee Cope


Lee is an Australian fantasy author and wordsmith-for-hire who likes to procrastinate from writing with more writing.

Their writing efforts can be traced either to the terrible Disney ripoff they wrote when they were six, or to the not quite as terrible but equally embarrassing David Eddings ripoff they wrote at fifteen, depending on your definition. They like to think their writing has gotten less terrible with practice, and if not original, then at least it derives from a variety of sources now.

They fund their fantasy writing by selling their wordsmithing services as a writer, editor and research assistant in projects both fictional and non. These ventures also fund one of the last DVD collections left in a digital world, a somewhat ill-advised martial arts interest, a modest video game library, and the upkeep of two very affectionate cats.

Lee has studied in Canberra, Melbourne and Dublin, all revolving around writing, literary analysis, and some languages and linguistics to round it all out. Their current degree is on hiatus. They would love to keep learning languages in their spare time, but that requires first having some spare time.
