About the Author

D. Lou Raymond's six years in Botswana, Africa as a Peace Corps volunteer and later a development officer included travels to towns, villages, and remote areas in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, and South Africa. Raymond won a writing competition from MacMillan Publishers (South Africa) for the short story, Rain Woman, and the award was presented by then President of Botswana, Dr. Quett Masire. Rain Woman was subsequently published in two anthologies by MacMillan, Eyes on Africa - stories by new writers - and Patterns of Africa, stories by well-known writers such as Chinua Achebe, Bessie Head, and Ngugi wa Thiong'o.

Raymond's focus on the relationships of sisters in Dodging Africa is borne from growing up in a large family of five sisters and one brother. Back in Portland after two decades outside of Oregon, Raymond is working on a second novel set in Europe during World War II (expected publication Summer 2019).
