Laura Lee

Laura Lee Huttenbach, a graduate of the University of Virginia, has been a serious athlete since her older brothers taught her how to slide tackle in soccer when she was four. In high school as a four-sport star, she was named Female Athlete of the Year for the state of Georgia.

She moved to South Beach in 2011 after finishing her first book—The Boy Is Gone, the life story of a Kenyan independence leader whom she met while backpacking in Africa.

During her evening runs in Miami Beach, she met Raven and became fascinated by his story. While running with Raven, she learned Miami Beach history and met characters of the past and present who were unlike any she’d ever known.

Her website is www.llhuttenbach.com. To find out more about the Raven Runs, visit www.ravenrun.net. Currently, she is living in New York City as a graduate student and Chair’s Fellow at New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute.
