Raconteur, general layabout and hail-fellow: does lawns and windows. Creator of spicy tales with inciseful observations and adroitly crafted tropes. Reasonable.

Background Information

With the onset of late middle age Rob Hunter is the sole support of a 1999 Ford Escort and the despair of his young wife. He does dishes, mows the lawn and keeps their coastal Maine cottage spotless by moving as little as possible.

In a former life ¹ he was a newspaper copy boy, railroad telegraph operator, recording engineer and film editor. He spent the 70s and 80s as a Top-40 disc jockey. He won a plaque once, for production excellence, from the Maine Association of Broadcasters. The boss kept it. One of Rob’s engineering projects ² won Senator William Proxmire’s (D-Wisconsin) Golden Fleece Award. 100 Years of Air Power was an Air Force recruiting multimedia presentation shot in PanaVision with 70mm slides, quad stereo, the works. It toured in a trailer that sat four.

Rob’s wife, Bonnie, is the secretary at a nearby rural elementary school. She is a gifted quilter who beguiled her new husband with the kaleidoscope of patchwork geometry. The nearest town to the Hunters that anybody is likely to have ever heard of—because of Stephen King’s The Langoliers—is Bangor, Maine where there are real parking meters and a traffic light. They drive down every six months or so to watch the light change and see the trains come in.

¹ The Milwaukee Journal; Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific RR Co.; WINS-NYC, WBT-Charlotte; WJAR-Providence; WIVY-Jacksonville; WNEW-NYC; WBAI-Pacifica; WQDY-Calais, Maine
² Rob’s long-time client at Random House Audiobooks, Sherry Huber, wangled them a 1987 Spoken Arts Grammy nomination. They didn’t win. The nomination was for The Short Stories of Ray Bradbury.

Print, Web, and MP3 audio downloads of previously published short fiction. Plus "The Return of the Orange Virgin," a serial novel updated monthly.

A Rain of Frogs: a Blog
A writer’s catchall and armamentarium of lost words―a cellar, if you will, stocked with last year’s sweet potatoes and next year’s onions plus a hopeful phrase or two. A Rain of Frogs is intended as a companion blog for, a place I can write freely, snap my braggin’ suspenders, and plomp in the backstories and factoids that just don’t belong among the more crafted offerings of the Mother Ship (above). You are invited to browse.
