Since the publication of her series of suspense novels, White King and the Doctor, White King Rising, White King and the Battle of America: The Endgame, and White King and the Seat at the Table she has made numerous radio and TV appearances discussing the books’ relevance to the events we have all witnessed and experienced in the first two decades of the new Millennium and has spoken often at book signings and private readings in New York and Los Angeles.

In 2008 she was inducted into the Dazzling Daughters of the American Revolution—becoming one of only 121 women in American history to be selected for this prestigious group which includes luminaries Susan B. Anthony, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Clara Barton.

In 2014 Lee was chosen by the Secretary of the Air Force to participate in the Air War College/National Security Forum—to engage with top US and Foreign Military officers in strategic analysis and discussions focusing on national and international security issues.
