Greetings! I'm Jim Lee a native and lifelong resident of Windber, Pennsylvania--a small town better know for producing an Olympic swim champion/early movie Tarzan (Johnny Weismuller), the DJ who popularized the term "rock n roll" (Alan "Moondoggie" Freed) and millions of tons of coal dust.
I've been a published writer (and more recently a freelance editor) since the 1980s. My first sale was to an anthology of erotic SF/F poetry and art, ALIENS & LOVERS (Unique Graphics, Oakland, CA, 1983). Since then I've published a wide range of short fiction, poetry and nonfiction in print and online magazines, anthologies and pretty much any other venue that would take my work in the US, Canada, Australia, South Africa and the UK.
My short novel of erotic suspense, COYOTE SUMMER, was recently published in ebook form by Crimson Frost Books of Canada. While I have contributed individual stories and/or poem to various anthologies, COYOTE SUMMER is my first stand alone book. It, like many of my anthology contributions is available here--check Amazon's Kindle store!!! Price: $3.99.
In 2012 I co-founded a small nonprofit that assists the needy in and around my hometown with a particular emphasis on helping creative artists and promoting culture events. This small but energetic organization (Sanctuary of Steele, Inc.) can be found on Facebook.
I dabble in acting as well. ZOMBIE DREAM, a low-budget film from Blair Murphy's EMPYRE FILMS and in which I have a small speaking part in has been released on DVD.
I also have my own Facebook page, as well as a page at Linked-In.
