According to her bio, C. Lee was born and raised in California, though moved around in state quite a bit. Then she moved out farther. Like out of the continent farther, eventually to return here, to good ole California. She quotes Dorothy and says, "There's no place like home." She says the people in her home town in Northern California really "get" her. She also loves hiking and food, among other things.
So, going on an epic adventure all around the world and ultimately ending up at home where you belong? Eating second breakfasts? Hiking? Lets see those feet, C. Lee!
It's just so obvious, isn't it? She's a HOBBIT!!
She also loves to read about them. Well, it's probably because she knows them so well, isn't it C. Lee?
Well, she's the prettiest hobbit I've ever seen anyway (sorry Frodo).
