“Back when I started writing, I never could have dreamed that someday these little characters I thought up would connect with so many people in so many places, let alone on the silver screen... I’m just floored,” said Lee. “I’m so lucky to have such great friends and supportive fans who continue to inspire me and have kept me going.”
