Stalag Texas - Christmas Eve, 1944. A select group of German POWs seize a pair of hostages and break out of the MacLean Detention Camp in West Texas, heading for New Mexico and America's secret A-bomb facility in Los Alamos. Only the hostages -- Captain Edward Dryden and an American nurse -- know where the Germans are headed. With little hope of rescue, Dryden must stop the POWs before they reach their goal, or die knowing the Germans are one step closer to ultimate victory. Originally published by Pocket Books.

About the Author

Lee's first professional writing experience was with newspapers. After graduating from Texas Tech, he went to work with the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal as a sports writer, sports photographer and sports cartoonist. He worked there until he was invited to join the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, working for city-side.

Lee worked in Fort Worth for five years, then went to Spain as a freelancer, trying his hand at a first novel.

After a year in Europe, he went to work for the Denver Post, where he stayed for five years, until an international PR firm (Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.) hired him to work in Akron, Ohio, where he stayed for two years. He then went to Mexico for another year of freelancing. When he returned to the states, he worked on two new novels and tried his hand at professional painting. He was offered a job as editor-in-chief of the Tehran Journal, an English-language newspaper in Iran, but chose to return to graduate school. While studying for his master's in West Virginia, he served as stringer for the Associated Press and taught a photography class for the WVU School of Journalism.

Once he got his Master's degree and started teaching, he was asked to handle magazine-article classes. He knew little about magazines, so he started writing articles for a broad range of magazines, from top consumer markets to lower specialized markets while teaching at the University of Arizona, New York University, Cal State Long Beach, University of Idaho, and University of Memphis.. He published materials in some thirty different magazines during this period, and began to find success with his novels. Later, after he stopped teaching, he added several hundred magazine articles to his writing credits when he began reviewing computer subjects and computer games for computer magazines. His list of writing credits is extensive, and you will find partial lists in several categories on his web site,, including art, photography, magazine writing, academic writing, and books.
