"As a writer, I’m carrying the darkness; I’m writing about the difficult, the leaden places no one wants to go or look at, because my life experience has been informed by it.

 

"My gift is to dismantle and translate it, so that it can be—maybe—made less scary, by revealing the concurrent existence of hope—so that as a people we can get around it and past it. If I can, so can everyone.​

 

"Even in the darkest times, there is always a glimmer of hope—and love, yes, it’s there. The secret of the darkness is that love is also coinciding."

Education

With advance degrees in history and writing, Hunter's areas of critical research and specialty in history include: the work of Master Sun Tzu, modern Irish history, with an emphasis on the humanitarian work of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, John Hume (Northern Ireland), whom she's had the opportunity to meet and study with; African, Caribbean, and Indigenous diaspora and enslavement in the Americas; the 20th-century spiritualist movement (globally); and the history of technology.

Some areas of research and specialty in writing include: historical fiction, writing for young people; screenwriting; CNF; and social science fiction, with an emphasis on the work of Orwell, Zamyatin, and Rand. 

Most especially, Hunter is a lifetime learner of writing as a life-long practice, art, and craft as a way of life. She is a gentle advocate for peace and dignity for all living beings.

Teaching

Hunter teaches creative and professional writing (e.g., fiction, nature writing, screenwriting, business writing), for all experience levels, at several universities in New England. Her classes are known for being writer-focused, energetic and modern, often debunking old and tired writing mantras. Further, she ensures her students leave with several pieces to expand on. Some favorite classes include, 'Writing Nature Where You Are,' 'The Book: From Idea to Publication,' 'How to Make a Ghost,' 'Realism & Surrealism,' and 'Social Justice Writing.' 

She was recently awarded the 'Alumni Achievement Award' by Lesley University, in recognition of her outstanding professional achievements, devotion to her career, and ardent support for her students’ creative ambitions.
