I wish to recognize and acknowledge the Esquimalt & Songhees Nations on whose traditional unceded Coast Salish territories I live, I learn, and I do my work.

About Author

Lee Gabel
“I write books I’d like to read, books that scare me, make me laugh, and sometimes cry. Because as a reader, authentic storytelling rocks my world. 📖😊👍”

Since 1992, Lee has worked within the visual and dramatic arts landscape as a graphic designer, illustrator, visual effects artist, animator, screenwriter and author. He’s contributed to an Emmy award (LOST; “Pilot; Part 1 and Part 2”) and once walked 63.5 kilometers in 13 hours. Traditionally trained as a screenwriter, Lee has moved to writing books in order to share his stories.

Lee has spent most of his life living on an island in the Pacific Northwest and he writes in multiple genres that interest him. Why? In his own words: “Writing is magic. I’ll never understand how it works the way it does, but I do know if I put energy into writing, it rewards me in strange and wonderful ways. Even if I know where I’m going in a story, often I’ll end up being pulled in directions by my characters that I least expect. What ends up on the page never ceases to surprise me, and that’s super cool. Writing continues to be one of the most difficult and most rewarding aspects of my life.”
