Bio: Lee Dunning has written stories in one form or another since grade school. Lured into the realm of fantasy by her mother who read "The Last Unicorn" to her, Lee has never escaped the pull of magical worlds and mystic creatures. Her sixth grade teacher, Dixie Gaisford, introduced her to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, and from this came Lee's obsession with elves. Introduction to Dungeons and Dragons in high school ended any hope that Lee would escape and live a normal, boring life spent in the pursuit of a six-digit pay check and an early grave. Today she lives in the hellish desert with four siamese and one horrified orange tabby. The Pacific Northwest is calling and she hopes to relocate there soon.
