About the Author

About Lee J. Ames

I’ve been married to Jocelyn for sixty-four years (either I’m lucky or I must have been doing something right). I have a son, Jonathan (his wife’ s name is Cynthia), and a daughter, Alison (her husband is Marty). I have three grand kids named Mark, Lauren, and Hilary. And I dare not omit our two magnificent hybrid canines, Missy and Rosie. All of the above are the makings of my lovely adventure!

Me? At eighteen I got my first job, at the Walt Disney Studios. Counting travel time across the country, that job lasted three months. I’ve been cashing in on the glory ever since! I’ve worked in animation, advertising, comic books, teaching, and illustrating books (about 150). I’m the author of more than thirty-five books (mostly the Draw 50 series). All have helped me happily avoid facing reality. We now live in the paradise of Southern California, but I still maintain membership in the Berndt Toast Gang, New York’s chapter of the National Cartoonists Society.
