His range of experiences has led to appearances on “CBS This Morning,” CNN, NPR, Voice of America, and PBS.

Lee’s most recent books include the best-selling legal thriller No Physical Evidence and a family non-fiction memoir, Chasing Hepburn. Lee co-authored the award winning screenplay Honor and Duty with Lee Mendelson, producer of Peanuts and Charlie Brown. He is currently writing Things That Ought To Be, a guide for executives seeking to adopt modern Aristotelian, disciplined, integrity-driven decision-making and operations.

Lee’s workshop is a part of The Peer Learning Network, a program facilitated by Southern Nazarene University.
