Hunt Brumby is an Appalachian storyteller raised in the small town of Murphy NC. Son to a Lawyer and Librarian, he found love for written word early in life. Following high school, he left those hollers and hills for a life in the United States Marines where he first started writing. Hunt considers himself a collector of experiences and draws upon all of them in his writing. With a love for dark comedy, his stories will find humor where most would find pain. Currently, he is working on a collection of short stories chronicling his time in the military from boot camp to his time in Iraq. He hopes to compile these into a collection that gives his honest account of a subject so often not talked about in an open manner. Hunt considers himself forever a student, a collector of ink, and most of all, willing to spin a tale for whomever will listen.
