About Dwight W. Hunter

I was born and reared on the Nez Perce Indian Reservation in Northern Idaho, graduated from Nezperce High school in the class of '50, spent a four-year tour of duty in the Navy which took me to California, Tennessee, Japan and Alaska. After leaving the Navy I received a B.S. Degree in Engineering from Indiana Institute of Technology at Fort Wayne, Indiana and subsequently spent thirty years in the Aerospace industry and private business
Shifting careers in 1986 I received an A.S. Degree from the Allied Health Department of Mission College at Santa Clara, California, followed by ten years as a Psych Nurse with the California Department of Developmental Services.
Soon after retirement I revisited Idaho, to keep a blind date with Mary, who subsequently became my life partner. We pooled our money, bought a used van and RV trailer and became RV’ers.
One day, while enjoying the sun and sea at Morro Bay, CA State Park, I made a comment that someone should write bodice ripper romance novels about retired senior citizens. Mary replied with a question. Why don’t you? In answer to her question I authored my first novel about a strong-willed retired lady and a less then bright snowbird cowboy.
Like most nascent writers, following the birth of my first book I self published and quickly discovered potential readers were not scrambling to purchase this newly minted masterpiece. Setting aside my dreams for instant fame, I continued to write for my own amusement.
In six following novels I shifted time frames to the post-Civil War era and younger women protagonists. To date I have written seven titles in the Sisters of Destiny Series. Members in this fictional sisterhood possess a common gene, giving them the chutzpa to out think, out shoot and out maneuver ego driven men thoughtless enough to stand in their way.
After completing my seventh novel I learned about e-books and a friend offered to create a web site to market my books in their original print format. Unfortunately she died unexpectedly and the web site project suffered a still-birth.
A couple of years later I heard about Smashwords and quickly learned my initial attempt at website marketing books, in their print format, was not the way to bring books to market.
Mary and I have given up full time RV’ing and settled down in the quasi frontier town of Pahrump, NV. Since becoming domesticated, I have devoted a major portion of my time to converting books into Smashwords format for publication.
