Y I Lee

Biography

Y I Lee was born in Swindon Wiltshire, the eldest of three children. From a young age her greatest joy was to curl up with a good book. They became her escape from a troubled childhood. Over time she naturally progressed into writing. At the age of ten, she ambitiously attempted her first novel but quickly gave up. However, the seed was planted, and in the coming years in between a successful singing career she continued to put pen to paper, writing poetry and short stories. She's always had a great love for animals, especially horses. And thanks to a friend, she also grew to love Fancy rats, and spent a number of happy years breeding and showing them. Understandably, horses and rats often find their way into her books.
In the past few years, Y I Lee found herself in the enviable position of being able to write full time, and her love of fantasy has found its full expression.
Y I Lee and her husband Keith live in the UK, in the beautiful county of Warwickshire.

  • Redeeming Reputation on April 10, 2013

    If you like cowboys, action and romance, you will love Redeeming Reputation. This is a fast paced and exciting read. Once you start to read it's hard to put it down. There is an evangelistic message, but it's very much part of the story and I loved the clever way the author, George H.McVey put it all together. It's a good book and I really enjoyed it.

  • The Earth Painter on May 15, 2013
    (no rating)
    The Earth Painter by Melissa Turner Lee, is a supernatural romance, and I loved it. It is certainly different! The characters are so well written and will remain with me; especially, Theo! But so will the heroin, Holly. She's a strong character even though beaten down by her awful domineering mother, who goes out of her way to destroy the girl's confidence at every opportunity. However one day at school while rehearsing a play, Holly meets Theo. Interestingly, no one else can see him. They grow close and Theo gives Holly the confidence she lacks; thanks to her mother. Over time of course their friendship becomes something more. Which brings its own problems as Theo is an earth painter and not human. The ending was fascinating and took me by surprise, so I'm glad it's a series, as I'm keen to know what happens, especially to Theo. This is such a good book and beautifully written. I highly recommend it.
