Introduction I'm Lauri Kubuitsile. I'm a full-time, award-winning writer living in Botswana. I have numerous published books for both kids and adults, across various genres, and my short stories have been published around the world.

Interests Reading, swimming, taking walks in the bush with my dogs, and spending time with my family.
