About this author

Since the age of eight, L. R. W. Lee wanted to write a children’s book, but felt she did not have anything significant to share; she sought to change lives while entertaining. A degree in Accounting did not provide riveting fodder for a best seller, so she waited. Over a decade, she founded and grew a company, during which, she worked closely with a mentor from whom she learned uncommon thinking that changed her life. After selling her business in early 2012, she had time to write and, more importantly, something significant to share.

L. R. W. Lee lives in scenic Austin, TX with her husband. Her daughter studies at the University of Texas and her son is in the Air Force.

The lack of a narrative. It's a narrative I just have not yet invented, no different than the narratives that fill my books. I know, given patience and time to think, I will invent a compelling narrative to fill a situation.(less)

I did not know Victorian times created such a dictionary. What a beautiful way to express love and feelings when society forbid it. The story was engrossing and I loved the ending. Well done!

Father’s crime: graduating from an American university, St. John’s University in Shanghai, the Harvard of China. And now the Communists considered him a threat to their new power and they imprisoned folks like that. The boy knew what would happen now: his two brothers and three sisters would go to live with Grandpa a

In the end, you will find things are the way they are, as a result of your choices. Accept responsibility and start making different choices. Your life will be more peaceful as a result.”
