Lionel Ntasano was born in Burundi in 1984 and raised in Zambia. He attended university in the U.S.A, Kenya and Switzerland; earning a Bachelor in Management and a Masters in International Business. He now runs the Nonara Beach Resort in Bujumbura. Nevertheless, he still did not believe that he had reached the place he wanted to be, regardless of the small career success.
As a voracious reader since childhood, and an avid follower of the philosophical school of Stoicism he decided to have a go at writing. Surprisingly, the process of writing his first novel, ‘Greener on the Other Side’ significantly helped him to grow and mature as a person. Thanks to this experience, he has mended difficult relationships with siblings and friends. He truly believes that he has become more understanding, and he is glad to say that this is what his writing is all about; understanding, patience and forgiveness.
Lionel Ntasano lives with his wife in Bujumbura, Burundi.
