George Douglas Lee
Born and raised on Galveston Island, George Douglas Lee received his BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) from Sam Houston State University. Somewhere along the way Lee became interested in writing.
Joining Scriptwriters of Houston provided the inspiration and encouragement to write stage and screen plays. The children’s plays were sellouts and audiences asked for book versions of the children’s plays.
Lee combined his artistic talent with his writing skills and has published four children’s books: The Wolf Who Cried Boy; A Kringle Dingle Christmas; Oppy The Hopping Popper; and, Twyla the Truffle Pig.
Lee now has 12 published and produced plays and has been inducted into the Texas Playwriting Hall of Fame. His plays are currently being performed at theatres around the world. Find his plays on www.lazybeescripts.com
He is also a musician, with eleven CD albums. Lee owns the G. Lee Art Gallery at 2215 Postoffice Street in Galveston, Texas. He conducts Galveston History Tours, and was a featured on-camera commentator in the History Channel and Smithsonian Channel’s America’s Greatest Disaster, a one hour documentary about the great hurricane of 1900. Houston film director Joe Grisaffi produced Laughing Boy, based on Lee’s play and screenplay of the same name. It has won numerous awards and now available on Netflix.
He is married with one son. He resides in a historic home by the sea, where he writes music, plays and continues his adventures in creative arts.
