About Lee Edward Fodi

I’m a children’s author, illustrator, and specialized arts educator—or, as I like to think of myself, a daydreaming expert. I'm the author of the Kendra Kandlestar series and The Secret of Zoone. During my free time, I'm a traveler, adventurer, and maker of dragon eggs. I live in Vancouver with my wife, son, and unhelpful cat.
