A book to savor.
My illness was sudden and brutal, but I survived and my little cottage in Courtmacsherry was the perfect home to pause and reflect. My ambition now is to become the master of the novelette, an underused literary form

Anything Cage does is good in my book. Just seeing this poster made me want to see that movie again.

I wonder where that guy with the money is? I'll have to Google him. 

I take umbrage to people who center only on themselves.
I take umbrage to the following things: When my shows get erased on T.V. before I watch them. I have a few select shows that I wait for the perfect time to settle in and just watch! I only watch t.v. certain times of the we...

I saw it, but right now I can't even remember if I liked it or not. The mind is blitzed.

I've even received alerts, and when I track them down, I find out my books are free. It may be the same site. 
Yesterday I came across a forum where a few people were trying to find my book for free. They wanted a free download. Way down the list of replies --many of

Story
Tagline
Writer here! Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction.
Introduction
I call myself C. Lee McKenzie, a writer who works at capturing the pulse of adolescent confusion in my Young Adult (YA) fiction. I also love to write Middle Grade (MG) adventure fantasy.

My published work is Sliding on the Edge, The Princess of Las Pulgas, and Double Negative--all YA.  Alligators Overhead is my first MG, but I have a sequel on the way. 

I have short stories in anthologies and they get recognition with 4 and 5 stars, so that's been a very nice boost for this writer.

I'm a native Californian who loves to travel, but also loves to come home. When I'm not writing, I'm hiking along my favorite mountain trails, digging in my garden or greeting the sun with a few yoga salutations. How lucky I am to have this life and these pursuits.


Bragging rights
Have three Young Adult Novels out to good reviews, Sliding on the Edge, The Princess of Las Pulgas, and Double Negative. My first Middle Grade novel titled Alligators Overhead is out and Kirkus Reviews gave this one a lovely thumbs up! I have two Young Adult short stories published in two different anthologies: The First Time and Two and Twenty Dark Tales.

Occupation
