Hi, I'm Kimball Lee and I'd like to welcome you to the many worlds of my imagination! The topics of my novels and novella-series will vary but my style of writing remains the same. I don't write 700 page books padded with useless words that take three chapters to describe a doorknob! I do write funny, interesting, happy, sad, romantic, often titillating and always thought provoking works that pack a lot of good reading into just the right number of pages.
I hope you enjoy my writing and know that it comes from the heart and I give every spare moment to creating characters you would want to have as friends and worlds you would want to visit or live in. Happy reading! Kimball

I have been a fantasy fan since I was born. I've been writing fantasy since fourth grade and cut my teeth on authors like Brian Jacques and Stephen R. Donaldson. In high school I found a more unusual muse: role playing games.

Then in college fortune struck another unorthodox blow. I was afflicted with a particularly debilitating case of respiratory flu and was unable to speak for ten days straight.
