Lee Jordan is a devoted father and active child advocate. “I decided not to sit on the sidelines as I watched my children try to navigate their way in a rapidly changing landscape. I started to wonder what I could do to help all the kids out there that are facing a tough world of techno marvels. I was lucky enough to find other people who wanted to help our kids, and the One Creepy Street Series was born. The second book – The Spider on the Web - is about internet danger and who you are emailing might not be who they claim they are.”
Lee Jordan lives outside Ft. Worth, Texas with his wife, three children, six dogs, two cats and various visiting animals and friends.
