Douglas Lee came to Kimberley Cameron as a writer in 2014 with the purpose of learning what hid behind the curtain of publishing. While completing his MFA, he found that he loved the work both behind and ahead of the typewriter. At this time, his sole focus is representing science fiction and fantasy that stimulates the imagination.
Douglas began his career in writing as a young man. After graduating from high school at the age of 15, he earned his Bachelor's in Creative Writing from San Francisco when he was 20 years old. Though educated and vetted in literary fiction throughout his tour of the Academy, his love of the speculative has never been abandoned.
After earning his BA, he cobbled together a life around writing. He was a stage comic, a nightclub manager, a DJ Lighting technician and lived in South Korea teaching English. He returned from traveling the world to attend the University of San Francisco to begin his MFA.
As an agent he is looking for SFF manuscripts that utilize the craft elements of literary fiction and the best parts of imaginative genre. He is seeking novels with writing just as enticing as the story. Subtle and deft world-building techniques capture his attention; as do characters with raw magnetism and confused moral compasses.
Douglas welcomes all SFF sub-genres. He has a soft spot for Cyberpunk, Weird Fiction in the flavor of China Mieville, Steampunk and noir influenced voices. He seeks writers who write against genre and bend preconceptions. LGBTQ based manuscripts are welcome, as are unconventional SFF protagonists with marginalized voices in their world.
Douglas is not currently accepting YA manuscripts or writing specifically aimed at audiences younger than adult.
