Rating position

Mark Hunter
14 July 1962
External Services:
Mark R Hunter’s first novel, the romantic comedy Storm Chaser, was published by Whiskey Creek Press in 2011, and in 2012 the same published released his related short story e-book collection, Storm Chaser Shorts. Also that year, a humor piece by Mark was including in the anthology My Funny Valentine.

In July, 2013, Mark self-published a local history book, Smoky Days and Sleepless Nights: A Century or So With the Albion Fire Department. His humor column, Slightly Off the Mark, has appeared in the Albion New Era for over two decades, and is now also printed in the weekly newspapers Churubusco News and Huntertown News.

For two decades Mark R Hunter has been an emergency dispatcher for the Noble County Sheriff Department. He’s served over 32 years as a volunteer for the Albion Fire Department, holding such positions as safety officer, training officer, secretary, and public information officer. He also has done public relations writing for the Noble County Relay For Life, among other organizations, and served two terms on the Albion Town Council. When asked if he has any free time, he laughs hysterically.

Mark lives in Albion, Indiana, with his wife and editor Emily, a cowardly ball python named Lucius, and a loving, scary dog named Beowulf. He has two daughters and twin grandsons, and so naturally is considering writing a children’s book. He can be found online at www.markrhunter.com.
