In her other life—the boring one before she began writing fiction for teens and middle grade readers—C. Lee was a lecturer and administrator at California State University, San Jose. Her field of Linguistics and Inter-cultural Communication has carried her to a lot of places in the world to explore different cultures and languages. She can say, “Where’s the toilet?” and “I’m lost!” in at least five languages and two dialects.
If she had three wishes her first would be to have more wishes. Her second would be to receive warning labels for any wish she made. Like, “If you actually find the money to buy a hundred-room castle in Scotland you’ll have to clean it yourself.” Or, “If you win the million-dollar lottery, all your relatives will visit.” Her third wish might be to cancel the first two wishes.
Her idea of a perfect day is one or all of the following: starting a new novel, finishing writing a blockbuster novel, hiking on a misty morning trail in the Santa Cruz Mountains, saying Namaste after a great yoga practice, sipping a cappuccino at a bustling café, reading in front of a fire with snow outside, swimming in an ocean someplace.
