We are pleased to welcome Lee Maxwell to the Defiance Press family.

Born in 2000 (unfortunately a member of the very… special… gen-z), Lee Maxwell grew up in Connecticut where she gradually discovered her rather intense hatred of cold weather. The eldest of 7 siblings, she has worked closely with children from a young age. After graduating from a high school of 30 girls in Rhode Island, Lee then spent a year studying abroad in Israel.

Lee is a fourth grade boys teacher in a religious private school in Connecticut and has worked in both preschool and high school. Teaching has been a childhood ambition and recognizes her passion for working with kids. She enjoys recounting her growing collection of amusing anecdotes from her job.

Lee also loves writing, something that has persisted from her childhood as well. Her favorite genre is fiction and she hopes to write young adult fiction in the future. She enjoys sarcasm, pancakes, history, and sleeping.
