Interview with G. K. Hunter

Published 2021-03-11.
Who are some of your greatest author influences?
Well, in terms of my writing style, my biggest influences include Ernest Hemingway, Toni Morrison, N. Scott Momaday, Kurt Vonnegut, and most recently, Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Of Hemingway's books, I like "For Whom the Bell Tolls" the best, though I consider "The Old Man and the Sea" to be his best prose. Hemingway taught me how to write from the reality of my own life. "Mother Night" by Vonnegut was also loosely based on the author's experiences of being a POW under the Nazi's, which I consider to be his best work. I've also read many self-help books and some memoirs, but my approach to non-fiction is more akin to classical fiction that abides by documentary film standards.
For who did you write "Healing Our Bloodlines: The 8 Realizations of Generational Liberation"?
In the guidebook, I refer to those family members who wake up to the cyclic pain of their lineage as being the "Catalysts". Every family has the potential of having a Catalyst, although they don't always come with every new generation. Sometimes it takes a few generations for a family to have the good fortune of a new Catalyst. These are the bravest members of our kin, the ones who stand up against domestic abuse and make sacrifices for the betterment of the future generations. My clients and workshop participants are the Catalysts that I thought about while writing the book, which took me 12 years to complete. I believe that there will be more readers in the younger generations, including the generation that is just being born now, because this work is very cutting edge. It takes time for it to reach those who are ready to work on themselves on such a deep level. The work is meant for people of all cultural backgrounds and belief systems.

The 8 Realizations represent a path to liberation from the cyclic pain passed down from elders to children. These realizations were gleaned from 15 years of multi-cultural workshops and client sessions where participants bravely faced their family trees and released their inherited burdens to claim their most liberated and authentic lives. Break the cycle. Claim your truth. Be the Catalyst.
