John Hunter

Biography

Sent away to school to get a fancy education, my family proudly referred to me as bilingual for an uncanny ability to speak both Standard American English and my native Cracker. After graduation from a large brick and mortar university, a curious nature and an overactive imagination have led me down many paths in life: Former Peace Corps Volunteer, sales engineer, packaging design consultant, recovering golfer and more recently, an award-winning and produced scriptwriter. As a writer, I enjoy telling slightly dark and quirky stories with a dash of humor.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born and raised in the southeastern part of the United States where telling colorful stories is a popular pastime. Soap and water will not wash away this sort of start in life, and thankfully it shows in my writing.
How do you approach cover design?
The human brain processes graphics much quicker than words. This makes cover design very important.
