Lee's "Superhero" job is writing. Fans of QUEER AS A FIVE-DOLLAR BILL say, "I felt a magical bond with the story", "I absolutely loved this book," and that Lee Wind's "can't-put-it-down" writing "gripped me emotionally" and "will pull you in and have you wondering about the truth of history."
Lee lives in Los Angeles with his husband and their teenage daughter. He loves featuring fan art, #queerhistoryiseverywhere snapshots, and photos of GSAs and book clubs reading and discussing #queerasafivedollarbill
