Robert Hunt

“[Robert Hunt’s] writing is a combination of grittiness and tenderness that rings as true as your friendly neighbour who shovels out your driveway after a snowfall and looks a little embarrassed when you thank him.”

Robert Hunt was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland. He grew up in a time when many people barely survived on their income. When he wrote his trilogy of memoirs—Corner Boys, Townies, and Brazil Street—it was with the intention of showing readers what growing up in that era was like. It was also for the benefit of his grandchildren, who of course are growing up in a much different age.

Robert has two children, Stephen Hunt and Heather Johansen, who both live in Alberta, and he is blessed with seven beautiful grandchildren. He and his partner, Marion Penney, reside in St. John’s. Robert can be reached by email at bobhunt99@yahoo.ca.

About Flanker Press
Turning pages since 1994

Flanker Press is a bright spark in the Newfoundland and Labrador publishing scene. As the province’s most active publisher of trade books, the company now averages twenty new titles per year, with a heavy emphasis on regional non-fiction and historical fiction.

The mission of Flanker Press is to provide a quality publishing service to the local and regional writing community and to actively promote its authors and their books in Canada and abroad.

Now located in Paradise, Flanker Press has grown from a part-time venture in 1994 to a business with eight full-time employees. In the fall of 2004, Flanker Press launched a new imprint, Pennywell Books. This imprint includes literary fiction, short stories, young adult fiction, and children’s books.
