About the Author

Joseph Hunter

My name is Joseph Hunter. I grew up in East Tennessee and, after finishing school, I joined the military at age 17 with my parent’s reluctant permission. Upon completion of my twenty-year tour, I retired as a master electronic technician. Then went to work for an aircraft manufacturing company in Texas. I was allowed to work the night shift and thereby pursue my education during the day. After acquiring my degree in engineering, I took up writing as a hobby with the intention of someday publishing a novel based on my expertise in electronics, possibly in the sci-fi genre.
