Lee Hough is a Christian literary agent with Alive Communications. Lee is among that select group of American literary agents to have three collaborative books simultaneously on the prestigious New York Times bestseller list: Heaven Is for Real – Going Rogue – and Same Kind of Different As Me.
Lee first studied the art of storytelling at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles while co-authoring for a bestselling pastor. Moving from California to Colorado, Lee then held the consecutive positions of Senior Acquisitions Editor and Managing Editor at David C. Cook Publishing. From there he joined Alive Communications as a literary agent in 2001; in 2007 he was named “Agent of the Year” by Thomas Nelson publishing; and in 2010 was named vice president of Alive Communications. Over the years Lee has earned the respect of publishers and peers through hard work, integrity, and a passionate dedication to his authors. That passion has resulted in numerous other bestsellers and critically acclaimed works such as:
The Sacred Acre by Mark Tabb with the Ed Thomas family who was given the ESPY “Author Ashe Courage Award”
Never Surrender by LTG (Ret.) William Boykin, former Commander of U.S. Army Special Forces
Jesus, My Father, the CIA and Me by Ian Cron, Episcopal priest
The Blood of Lambs by Kamal Saleem, a former terrorist, and,
The Plague Maker, by novelist Tim Downs
Lee works with a very select stable of award winning fiction and non-fiction authors like Rich Stearns, president of World Vision and bestselling author of The Hole in Our Gospel; Terri Blackstock, NYT bestseller (over 6 million sold); Sheila Walsh (over 4 million sold); Nancy Rue (over 1.5 million sold); and Randy Singer (“gripping, obsessively readable” – starred PW review). Where did Lee’s love for words begin? When he discovered at age four that they had the power to get him out of a spanking after he set fire to, well, not the fireplace. Since then, authors like Beryl Markham, Laura Hillenbrand, Eugene Peterson, Robert McKee, Rick Bragg, and many others have led him to healthier, more helpful expressions of his love for story. Lee is married to Paula, and they have a blended family with three great kids, Katie, Cole, and Molly.
Little Known Facts: In High School, Lee was president of TARS, an all-volunteer organization that ran camps and day programs for special needs kids. Later, he worked as a gunfighter at Six Flags Over Texas; earned a masters in Biblical studies at Dallas Theological Seminary; trained indigent publishers in Sao Paulo, Brazil; climbs a “fourteener” every summer (Pikes Peak, 14,115 ft.); and owns a signed 40th Anniversary Edition of To Kill A Mockingbird. Lee grew up in Texas and one of the “prerequisites” for citizenship in that sovereign state is bull riding. So, of course, he put on his hat, tied himself to fifteen hundred pounds of hostile beef and said, “Outside!” It was a short ride. As was the second one. His brother rode first on the third go-around and dislocated his shoulder. Lee decided then that he had earned his citizenship and hung up his spurs.
