ABOUT C. Lee McKenzie

C. Lee McKenzie
A native Californian, C. Lee McKenzie is a writer who captures the pulse of adolescent confusion in her young adult novels, Sliding on the Edge and The Princess of Las Pulgas, Coming soon is her debut middle grade fantasy, Alligators Overhead.



Carlie Edmond has everything and then suddenly almost nothing. Follow her story from up scale Channing to working class Las Pulgas and see what she discovers about herself and the people in her life.

I wanted to explore loss and how it affected a young adult, and I also wanted to go into the issue of stereotypes. I started with the question: What if someone had everything and suddenly almost nothing.
