Matthew John Lee

Author, Novelist


The author grew up in the North East of England and after taking a degree in Mathematics embarked on a career as a teacher. Apart from spells in Asia, the bulk of his working life has been spent in Africa, a continent which both inspires and frustrates him. The alienation from homeland and the exposure to different cultures are evident in his first work, which combines a sense of loss with a sense of optimism over the prevailing redemptive power of the human spirit. The author now lives in Malaysia with his wife Monica, herself a published author, and their four children.
