"In 2005 my short contemporary manuscript, MAGGIE'S MAKEOVERS, placed second in the Great Expectations contest. From the editor's request, I went on to sell that book to Harlequin American Romance and THE MAN FOR MAGGIE was a June 2007 release. That book earned a four and a half star review from Romantic Times, and was a double nominee for a 2007 Reviewers' Choice Award. Thanks NTRWA for running such a great contest. It changed my life!"

THE MAN FOR MAGGIE, Harlequin American, June 2007
From the time Lee McKenzie was ten years old and read Anne of Green Gables and Little Women, she knew she wanted to be a writer, just like Anne and Jo. In the intervening years she has written advertising copy, magazine articles and an honors thesis in paleontology, and edited conference proceedings, educational material and technical publications. Along the way, her imagination demanded a more creative outlet, and she soon discovered the world of romance. Becoming a four-time Golden Heart finalist and a Harlequin author are her proudest accomplishments yet.
Lee and her artist/teacher husband live on an island in the Pacific Northwest, and she loves to spend time with two of her best friends--her grown-up children. To find out more about Lee and her books, readers are invited to visit her at www.leemckenzie.com.
