“My author rep was very easy to work with. The format of my book is a little different from most, and my wishes were closely followed. The end product was precisely what I wanted, and I am highly satisfied with it.”
James A. Hunter was the youngest of eleven children and grew up on a farm near the rural, small town of Metamora, Indiana. From an early age, all of the children were expected to help with the farm chores, which consisted of raising a garden, picking berries, putting up hay, milking cows, and raising crops. Everything took a back seat to work, but the children somehow found time to play and establish memories that would stay with them forever. The family farm still survives 95 years after Jim’s grandparents settled there, and his love for the land has led to him owning part of the family farm for 43 years and still counting. In addition, he has owned much of the valley surrounding it. His early passion for writing began in the valley, and it has remained undiminished since.
