David T. Lee is an avid reader and an ambitious young author. He was an early reader and started to write his 1st science fantasy story when he was 6. From 2011 to 2015 (age 7 to 12), he published 4 children science fiction chapter books (from 4,500 to 20,000 words per book). His books from his book series “The Adventures of Danny Hoopenbiller”, are cataloged by Library of Congress, public libraries and school media centers. His books are available for purchase online, including Amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com. His readers come from different parts of the world, including United States, British, Germany, Australia, Canada, India, Japan and Hong Kong.

Using his blog, participating in book exhibitions and literacy events, David has been demonstrating his writing journey to encourage young children to read and write more often since 2011 (since age 8). He has demonstrated his writing and publishing processes through his book selling events held in schools, public libraries and recently at Staples headquarters in Framingham, Massachusetts. He has inspired a few authors (kids and adults) to publish their books.

David writes action-packed funny science fantasy books. His main audience is kids from 6 to 12. Parents, teachers, schools and libraries like to share his work. His blog has hundreds of loyal subscribers. He enjoys promoting his books and received huge support from his audience and local news media.

In May of 2012, David sent President Barack Obama a signed copy of his first book “Danny and the Portal of the World” as a gift. A month later, he received an appreciation note from the White House signed by the President. The note was a surprise to David and his response was, “It means a lot to me. I really want to meet President Obama in person.”
