About the author:
Rae Ellen Lee grew up on a stump ranch in northern Idaho. She worked for the U.S. State Dept. in Washington, D.C., Switzerland, and (then) Yugoslavia before attending the Univ. of Idaho, where she earned a degree in Landscape Architecture. Employment with the U.S. Forest Service in Idaho and Montana followed, until 1997, when she resigned and moved to the sailboat, The Shoe. She wrote about that experience, in I Only Cuss When I'm Sailing (first published as If The Shoe Fits). In her second memoir, a sequel, My Next Husband Will Be Normal - A St. John Adventure, she and husband, Tom, ditch their sailboat and move to St. John. Soon after unpacking their flip-flops, Tom realizes he is really a she. She shares the funny side of events that follow, and life on a tiny island in the Caribbean.

She has also published Powder Monkey Tales-A Portrait in Stories, by Wesley Moore alias Post Hole Augerson, a geezer of some renown in northern Idaho. A farm boy from Illinois who headed west in 1941, Wes became a woods worker and powder monkey, who used dynamite
to help build roads for the logging industry in the 1940s and 1950s. This booklet captures the history and humor of her father, in his own words.
Rae Ellen now lives and writes in Bellingham, WA, in the company of her doodle dog, Sudsie, and as often as possible, she hikes, bikes, and sketches
with her Montana granddaughter, Madison.

The Bluebird House

A madam. A diary. A murder.

Authored by Rae Ellen Lee

The place: Montana. The time: the present. After a nearly fatal encounter with a moose and a terrifyingly close brush with middle age, Molly reassesses her life. The result: she ends her stale marriage and moves to a small mining town where she purchases The Bluebird House, an old bordello. She hires Ben, a handsome carpenter - and poet, gourmet cook, and mountain man - to help her renovate the old building. Molly can't help but be attracted to the younger man - until she discovers that he was once tried and acquitted of a gruesome murder. Shocked, she tries to uncover the truth behind the murder and Ben's part in it. Meanwhile, intrigued by her new home, Molly also tracks down the true story of her predecessor - the madam of The Bluebird House.
