D. Lee Lott

Biography

Just as other Texas authors, D. Lee Lott’s love for reading has lead to her love for writing. Over twenty years ago she had a magazine article published, but life got in the way and she gave up writing. After realizing what a mistake that was, she is back to pursuing writing as a second career. Other accomplishments were writing newsletters and users manuals for different companies where she worked. She has written a Server Training Manual for small independent restaurants. The first mystery she wrote started as a dream that she felt the needed to write down and it just flowed from there. Mystery seems to be where her heart lies and she has published a mystery and is currently working on getting a children’s chapter book published. She has also written a children’s book and has a story published in an issue of the Sherlock Holmes Mystery Magazine. She also writes poems and song lyrics.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in San Antonio, Texas, but I don't know that this was much of an influence on my writing other than the fact that I started writing poetry in sixth grade that my teacher thought was pretty good. I later wrote newsletters and manuals for different companies that I worked for, but my true writing career started at a lonely point in my life. When I wrote my first book, my husband was working long days, seven days a week and I was alone a lot, so I threw myself into writing. Then it became a passion.
When did you first start writing?
In 2006, my grandson inspired me to write a rhyming children's book. I sent it to several different publishers for over a year with not even one response, so I became disenchanted, but writing was in my blood, so I put that book on the back burner and pursued other forms of writing.
