I’m totally serious. Let me tell you why.
“The power of good stories compels me.”
Lee reads practically any genre. Plus, he’s a movie junkie. For a writer, that’s a dangerous combination.
Traditionally trained as a screenwriter, Lee moved to writing multi-genre books in 2016 and is the author of six novels: Tied: A Street Gang Novel, David’s Summer, Snipped: A Cutting Comedy, Vermin 2.0 (Detest-A-Pest #1), Arachnid 2.0 (Detest-A-Pest #2), and Molerat 2.0 (Detest-A-Pest #3). Lee will release a brand new three-book saga in 2022 and Detest-A-Pest #4 soon after.
Lee once walked 63.5 kilometers in thirteen hours. Why? Ask him. He loves to hear from readers. Past lives include working within the visual and dramatic arts landscape as a graphic designer, illustrator, visual effects artist, animator, and screenwriter. In 2005 he contributed to an Emmy award (LOST; “Pilot; Part 1 and Part 2”) for Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Series.
In reality, Lee lives on an island in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and son. In his head, he lives wherever his characters are.

“This book was an awesome read. I couldn’t put it down, even when it creeped me out a few times. These rats are scary. I hope Lee writes another ‘rat tale.’ I will definitely want to read it.”
“This book… It had me from the very beginning til the very end. I loved it! I felt like I was a part of this family. I have to warn you… It is a tear-jerker but I think you’ll love it, too.”
“I am no longer young and usually cannot identify with younger points of view in books. I instantly was catapulted into this world and I loved it. This book had the right amount of realism, gruesomeness and horror. It is a winner.”
“This is a deliciously funny read. It has really likable characters and a funny as hell story-line. A must read!”
“I love, love, love this series. This book just reaffirmed how great Mr. Lee Gabel writes. The characters are so easy to love and they pop off the pages to become real in my mind. The creatures he writes about are created with scariness in mind and I love that. Combining scary situations with gory scenes is what keeps me reading into the night. Add in the humor from the gang and each book has gotten better and better. Please, please, keep them coming.”
“…a well written crime thriller that has strong messages for all who read it. It is fast moving, intriguing, humourless and upsetting with an ending that left me breathless.”
“For starters this book was well written and flowed easy. The characters were well defined and the surroundings were well described. Now with those details out of the way, this book kept me on pins and needles. There were times my skin crawled and creeped me out but I could not put the book down. This book is one of the best books that I have read in a long time that actually kept my attention and freaked me out all at the same time. This is a 5 star book.”
“David’s Summer was very well set from the beginning. Some parts made me smile, while others made me cry. I rate a book by my heart. This book pulled at my heart strings. This book was full of raw emotions. Anyone who has dealt with cancer knows its fury. A MUST read.”
“This second book in the series takes another step forward from good to great. The characters and the story is something Stephen King would be proud of, don’t miss this one!”
“I laughed until I cried! Who would have thought such a sensitive subject could be sooooo hilarious? Lee Gabel, that’s who. The reader needs to be cautioned that they may have fits of out-loud laughter, so read in the appropriate place. But OMG, did I enjoy the characters and the situations they got in, and even more so when presumed plots quickly turned into unexpected twists.”
“This book is literally a book that cannot be put down. These critters are really scary. Think of alien on a smaller scale. Great story. Characters are appealing and interact well with each other. Highly recommended.”
“This violent world in which teenage girl gangs are menacing and dangerous is gripping. I really wanted to find out who would survive.”
