F. D. Lee
I live in London with my husband, three cats and a guinea pig. As anyone who has ever been owned by animals will know, I and my husband are very much at the bottom of the pecking order!
I grew up in a comic book shop, and there's only two ways one can go with that kind of beginning. I went the geeky way. I love comics, sci-fi and fantasy, as well as board games and RPG. I'm not hugely into collectables, but there are few things that I horde; books mostly.
In addition to the above, I love the cinema and theatre, and will go whenever I can afford to! I also like studying and learning - currently I am looking into the changing representation of women in fantasy. I would happily and proudly call myself a feminist, and have consciously tried to make my own writing representational of women, but also to show non-traditional masculine characters and roles as well.
While I hope I don't shove these things down my readers' throats, I think it is important that literature reflect not just the world as it is, but as it could be. I think this element is particularly intrinsic to speculative/genre fiction, and it is one of the reasons I have always been so drawn to the genre.
My favourite authors are quite varied, though I would have to say that Terry Pratchett is my number one. Others include Max Brooks, Grant Naylor, Stephen Baxter, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Jim Butcher, Neil Gaiman, Suzanne Collins, Anne Rice, Steig Larsson, Elizabeth Gaskell, Joseph Heller, George Orwell, Jerome K. Jerome, P. G. Wodehouse, Evelyn Waugh, Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy.
I'm always very happy to chat about my books or general geeky things, so please feel free to contact me on Facebook, Twitter or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am also keen to support other self-publishers, so if you would like to discuss the process with me, again feel free to get in touch!
