But he always kept moving forward. He has had varied careers in his life, including being an artist and a front-man where he sung and co-wrote music in various touring bands. His role as an artist included creating pro-environmental art pieces, which have been in several solo and joint art exhibitions. He also produced and directed two short films, one of which is called 'The Devil's Ring', which he also wrote. (This film led to him writing his novel 'The Ruler of Hell - The Devil's Sister'.) These films were part of the four degrees he gained from major UK universities; one of these is a doctorate where he studied alternative cultures and crime. Throughout his life, Lee’s creative writing has always featured, enhanced by these experiences.
