Lester Thees has worked as a welder, office manager, truck driver, and private investigator, to name just a few. He spent a while in college, another while in a Catholic Seminary, and many years in the Land of the Lotus Eaters. His writing career began when a friend cornered him in a dark alley and forced him to confess his unholy urge to write stories. Quirky, peculiar, and strange stories that leave him cackling like a madman as he scribbles them on scraps of paper.

“Character-driven fiction fascinates me. I love to read it and write it. There’s nothing as thrilling as creating characters, then following them around to see what they’ll do.”

His short stories have appeared in dozens of magazines and anthologies.

His novel, Leaving Town, is modern pulp. Edgy, violent, and oddly comedic. Set in a small town, the pair of protagonists stumble through a pack of characters who could force a ten-way tie in the Misfit America Pageant.

Leaving Town is available for Kindle at
