Lilli “Lee” Adams works full time in the country music industry. As VP of National Promotion at Broken Bow Records, she has been part of the successful careers of singers Jason Aldean, Craig Morgan, Dustin Lynch and James Wesley. Lee has been a part of the promotions team for over 10 years, had a hand in 11 #1 songs, and two “songs of the year.” She works from her home when she’s not traveling or working from the Nashville office.
Donor Girl, written under her given name of Lilli, was inspired after her experience as a living organ donor. In 2006, her sister called to let her know that her husband was on the kidney transplant list, waiting for a kidney. The wait would take 5-7 years and Dave needed it within one year. The family decided to get tested and Lee’s medical tests came back as a match. Lee looked on the internet and in book stores to find books about living organ donors and couldn’t find many. Some members of her medical team and family suggested she write her story.
Lee has just finished her first fiction novel and it is available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle for just $2.99. Strawberry Wineis the story of five friends who grow up together, come of age together and endure a heartache that threatens to tear them apart and destroy the rest of their lives. It’s a story of friendship, forgiveness, and courage.
This November, Lee will release her second novel called Unlikely Family. This is the story of four teenagers who find themselves alone and homeless due to no fault of their own. They join together and with the help of two adults, form their own unlikely family and make it through adolescence. They overcome adversity to find friendship, success and love. Unlikely Family will be available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle this November.
