I am a New Zealander who writes Science Fantasy. I have a wife, two grown kids and a mortgage.
On this site you will find many treats and info about me and my books, reviews I have penned and one (interesting?) blog. Feel free to email me, I usually answer and also join my Club to keep up-to-date on new releases, including foreign titles.
I have been fortunate to land five small press novel publications, and I have sold over seventy short stories in anthologies and magazines. Recently my first non-fiction book (on weight loss – true story of me) was released by Triskaideka Books NZL.
My second non-fiction title is planned for the start of 2020. Details: I have an outline system I created and it works well for me. I’m writing a non-fiction book on the use of this type of outline, and to show it works. I’m using it for my current SF werewolf trilogy. The book will contain images and a real life example if I can find a publisher for the series. This is my second non-fiction book.
In 2004 I won the Horror World December Flash for the story Santa. I also won the Bloody Dagger Horror award for Re_entry of Evil.
In 2013, DemiGod Games (AU) commissioned me to pen a short story based on a new board game.
More recently (2016) I won a science fiction contest for my story, Saving Kira, at SFReader.com.
For the past six years I have been a Shadow Awards judge for the categories: Novel, long fiction, and graphic novels (run by the Australasian Horror Writers Association (AHWA) Incorporated).
Recently, I discovered I like crime writing and am currently working on a PI thriller, based in Japan. I’m not quite sure where it is going as I’ve never written this type of story before. So, I’m winging it, and reading as many crime novels as my Kindle can handle.
My current blurb:
Award winning author, Richard Lee, is a displaced writer of the weird, wonderful and grotesque. Since 2001 he has made an impact on the genre world and thrives within its limitless boundaries.
Over seventy short stories have slammed his name on anthologies and magazines across the globe. Five novels impacted humanity and two novellas were the icing on the cake.
He still sends his books out to independent and legacy publishers, looking for that elusive million dollar cheque.
