Bio

Growing up in the middle of the Midwest infused author LK Hunsaker with small town community-oriented spirit and a steady, earthy base.

Being raised in a widely artistic family added to that a strong creative urge. Manifested in the forms of fine art, music, and an interest in dance and theater, the urge was always strongest when it came to writing and story creating. Her first creative written works came well before her teen years with musical plays, developing into an exploration of poetry in her early teens and then into a short-term scriptwriting venture.

High School found Hunsaker dabbling in many extra-curricular activities including the school newspaper, yearbooks staff, art club, AFS (American Field Service), band, chorus, 4H where she earned a blue ribbon for a pencil drawing of a favorite musical artist, and some minor sports explorations. Graduating in the top 10, she headed to Illinois Central College to earn an arts associate and moved next to Eureka College, majoring in psychology with an art minor and plans to head into Art Therapy.

A detour took her to Texas before graduation with her new Army spouse, and then to West Germany (when it was still called West Germany). During the nearly 4 years overseas, she and her husband had their first child and did a fair amount of traveling, setting foot in Berlin just after the Wall came down with a traipse into Poland, castle exploring down the Rhine River, north via ferry to Copenhagen, and a one-month train trip to Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Madrid, Toledo, Rome, Venice, Vatican City, Florence, & Pisa, and back up through Switzerland.

Other moves took them to Massachusetts where their son was born and allowed quick trips to Boston and Maine, to Georgia where they daytripped to Savannah and jumped down to Florida, and to Northern Virginia where they did several White House tours and met President Bush. They visited Toronto on a musical adventure and NYC a year after the Towers fell. Family and friends have taken them to Idaho, New York, Michigan, Tennessee, Missouri, and Arizona. Now settled in western Pennsylvania, they're enjoying the gorgeous biking routes and scenic recreational lakes. Their most recent travels have been to Scotland, Ireland & England on a couple-only trip, to Niagara Falls, Texas, and Tennessee as a family, and to Bennington VT and the Adirondacks on the Harley.

Hunsaker has a degree in psychology, completed along the route somewhere between jobs and kids, with an emphasis in art and literature. She works as the network coordinator/creative director for Dr. Dee Preston-Dillon's Creative Clinician sand therapy education, does web design and maintence for a local company, runs the West PA Book Festival and an indie publishing group, reviews on Goodreads, and is self-teaching home gardening skills with the lack of a green thumb. Currently in the midst of writing and editing two (or more) novels and sketching for the next Write The Light in journal, she also adds short stories to her growing list of writing credits from time to time.
