Rand B. Lee grew up in a house full of books: Rand's father, Manfred B. Lee, was co-author of the "Ellery Queen" detective stories, and Rand's mother, Kaye Brinker, was an actor and writer for radio in the 1930s and 1940s. Author of Pleasures of the Cottage Garden, Rand's numerous gardening articles have appeared in The Mother Earth News, Organic Gardening, The Herb Quarterly, and other publications. His science fiction and fantasy short stories, many of them featuring strong female and gay male characters, have appeared in Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Amazing Stories, and in several anthologies. The Green Man, Rand's ebook anthology of his earliest published short stories, is available through Amazon. Rand has also worked for many years as a professional psychic (http://randlee.me).
