My name is Lara Lee. I am a graphic designer, wife, mother, home-school teacher, Sunday school teacher, author, cook, crafter, and geek. I wrote the book Gryphendale and illustrated Zip and the Golden Trombone. The Shadow of the Gryphon, The Gryphon’s Handmaiden, and The Gryphon of Stone are all coming soon!
I grew up in Florida with my head stuck in various books until I ran away to Oral Roberts University to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Graphic Design and a husband. Then I worked professionally with the children’s curriculum publisher, Mentoring Minds in Texas before following my husband on a crazy adventure in Scotland for four years. Bitten by wanderlust at a young age, I have lived in three states and four countries and have visited even more destinations with insatiable curiosity. Currently, I live in Texas (again) with my husband and son who both regularly participate in my misadventures and random schemes.
This is my personal blog and it has grown with me over the years. It has followed me to Scotland where my son was born and my husband got his Ph.D. It has moved with me to Florida and Texas. It has followed my continually changing interests and various curiosities. I gave up on having a unified theme or trying to fit it in a box. I have gotten rid of all the boxes. We don’t do normal in my family. We just do what we were created to do and be. Life is just a journey and I am all about making the most of it. I hope you enjoy my wanderings and adventures and misadventures. Most of all, I hope you see God’s beautiful creativity in the randomness of life.
