Rosey Lee writes stories about complicated families and complex friendships, but a happy ending is guaranteed. A native of the Westbank of New Orleans, Rosey is a fan of good food and a good time. Her stories contain health themes, because her alter ego (Ayanna V. Buckner) is an African American physician who has dedicated her career to individual and community-based approaches to health equity. Rosey’s flash fiction stories have appeared in Necessary Fiction, Barren Magazine, Edify Fiction, and elsewhere. "Wind Chill", her modern day response to Gone with the Wind, was nominated for the 2019 Best of the Net anthology. Rosey enjoys cooking, flower arranging, listening to live music, and occasional bursts of fanatical bargain shopping.
