Why G. Hunter Hanks?
People should know my name, not a pseudonym. On the other hand, the bookshelves, especially the sci-fi and fantasy sections, already have several really skilled Greg’s and Gregory’s. Since my middle name is Hunter, I can use my name and still be unique in good company.
Writing is my passion. Words on the page require a steady process (which I teach while wearing my other hat.) After teaching full time for a few years, one summer the head of the department couldn’t offer me any summer classes. I wrote instead. After mostly teaching and writing a little, I realized that my dream was to succeed as an author. Teaching is a calling, so I teach part-time while I follow my dream.
