Lee Hayton (a USA Today bestselling author) is the nom-de-plume of Katherine Hayton--a middle-aged woman who works in insurance, doesn't have children or pets, can't drive, has lived in Christchurch her entire life, and currently resides a two-minute walk from where she was born.
For some reason, she's developed a rich fantasy life.
Lee's latest releases are a humorous urban fantasy series called Magic Dude (yeah, the explanation is in the title) and Nerves of Steel, which is a new urban fantasy series about a wise-cracking cyborg, an extremely angst-ridden thirteen-year-old vampire, and a cat.
Both series are pretty awesome but if you want to form your own opinion, order them now!
If mystery/thrillers are more your bag, then check out her real name authorship Katherine Hayton where you'll find mysteries set (mainly) in her hometown of Christchurch.
Lee spends far too much time hanging about on Twitter under @kathay1973 if you want to connect, and is now tired of referring to herself in the third person so is signing off.
