Few authors are as active in the promotion of their books as Lee Brandon, who regularly visits schools across the country and presents at professional conferences. Lee also has to his credit poems and short stories in magazines; songs recorded and in sheet music; a best-selling musical play for elementary school students (in print with Lorenz Music); a play produced by a college drama department; a published Ford Foundation grant project; a chapbook of ballads about his youth, Oklahoma, My Sweet Sorrow; a chapbook of ballads about his experience teaching for ten years in a high-security California women's prison, Butterflies on Barbwire; and newspaper articles about travel, adventures, and whimsical experiences.Review:
"At a Glance "is easy to follow and understand and because of this, some of the fear of writing can be eliminated."
"The writing exercises and the suggested topics are a strength of this series. The exercises concerning the identification of types of sentences were most helpful for my students. My students find the suggested topics most helpful as they are generic enough to allow individual interpretation."
