Jim Lee is a lifelong resident of a small town in west-central Pennsylvania that is better known for producing an early Olympic swim champion/movie Tarzan (Johnny Weismuller), the DJ who popularized the term “Rock n Roll” (Alan Freed) and millions of tons of coal dust. Jim has been a published writer since the early 1980s. He has had short fiction, poetry and nonfiction articles in a dozen anthologies as well as countless magazines, newsletters, websites and other venues in the US, Canada, the UK and Australia.
Jim has published a wide range of material in almost every fiction genre, though he regards fantasy/horror, science fiction and erotic literature as his primary areas of interest/expertise.
In 1986, he was a co-founder of a local writers workshop, the Southern Alleghenies Writers Guild and since the early 90s he has been a member of the statewide organization Pennwriters, Inc. (where he has done the Market News column for their bimonthly newsletter for over a decade).
In recent years, he has also worked as a freelance editor and in 2012 he co-founded a nonprofit (the Sanctuary of Steele, Inc.) that seeks to provide creative solutions for people facing a range of life challenges.
