  • An affiliate member of the Horror Writers Association, Felicia has had short stories published in a number of dark and speculative fiction anthologies.
  • A fascination with local history led her to research and document the history and chain of ownership of a historic Los Angeles mansion locally rumored to have been owned by Harry Houdini and/or Errol Flynn. (Spoiler alert: It wasn't – but top bands including the Red Hot Chili Peppers have recorded albums there.)
  • As features editor at the Stanford Daily, she assigned a reporter to investigate rumors of a ghost in the main research library, and learned that the "ghost" had actually been a library staffer with albinism.

Experience

A lifelong reader and writer, Felicia Lee earned her first published bylines in college, as an intern at a local newsweekly (the Palo Alto Weekly) and as an intern for a publisher of airline inflight magazines. Her varied career has included jobs as a technical and promotional writer for the Space Shuttle program, a product test coordinator for a videogame company, a pastry baker in a five-star hotel, and a lecturer and researcher in linguistics at a number of universities. These experiences took her around the world and sparked her interest in and curiosity about a range of subjects, from technology to history to folklore and the supernatural. A published author, she written a horror novella as well as an unintentionally frightening book on the syntax of San Lucas Quiavini Zapotec, an endangered indigenous language of Mexico. In addition, her essays and articles have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Salon.com, as well as numerous local and regional publications.

Education

Felicia holds a BA with honors and an MA in English from Stanford University, a Ph.D. in linguistics from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a Cordon Bleu certificate in pastry and baking (with honors) from the California School of Culinary Arts.
