Jean Lee

Jean Lee wrote lesson plans for 22 years as an elementary teacher. She had no aspirations to write a book, however when both parents were diagnosed with Alzheimer's, her caregiver journey poured through Alzheimer's Daughter. After the sadness of her parents decline, life brought her a joy--triplet grandchildren. She is currently working on a series of books for ages 9-12 entitled Lexi's Triplets, written through the voice of the family mutt.
