About the Author

Lee Houck was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee and, in 2017, celebrates 20 years of living and working in New York City.

His debut novel, Yield, was the winner of Project QueerLit 2008, and was published by Kensington Books in 2010.  Yield was called “solid unsentimental storytelling” by Publisher’s Weekly and JimColumbu on Amazon.com called it “a bunch of nothings that take you no where, also totally boring.”

His writing appears in anthologies published in the U.S. and Australia, and in three limited-edition chapbooks: Fire Island/Follies (fiction, 2014;) Warnings (poems, 2009;) and Collection (essays, 2006).  His other work includes original pieces for theater seen in Vermont, Tennessee and in New York City, art installations for the Musee de Monoian, and poetry in the Magnetic Poetry Calendar. He is currently at work on a new novel, and blogs at GrammarPiano.com.

Additionally, with Great Small Works he has performed in “B.B. in L.A.” and “The Rising Tide Parade.”  With Jennifer Miller, he has been seen in “Cracked Ice” and “The Golden Racket,” and with Circus AMOK! for many, many seasons.

He’s into: Joan Didion, roller coasters, french fries, avocados, How It’s Made, farmer’s markets, the Indigo Girls, maple syrup, Madonna, small circuses on the fringes of towns, Ani Difranco, jokes, trying on expensive McQueen at Barney’s, Iceland, Tennessee, New York City, Las Vegas, dining out, staying in, and cats.
