About the Author

Jack Gunter is a prominent Pacific Northwest writer, artist, and antique dealer specializing in twentieth century decorative arts.
With a degree in biology and graduate training in organic chemistry, he was teaching school in Massachusetts in 1974 when he wrote and illustrated his first book, The Gunter Papers, Avon Books, N.Y., which he describes as a futuristic junior high school science curriculum and guide to the fourth dimension.
A self taught artist using the ancient technique of egg tempera painting, he exhibited his large format works in several New England museums and was included in an Andrew Wyeth and Family show in the Sharon, N.H. Art Center in 1979. That year a studio fire claimed all of his existing paintings and landed him in Washington State with a pick up truck, his dog, and the clothes on his back.
He settled on an island in Puget Sound when he discovered that he was the only person in a thousand mile radius who wanted mission oak objects and the Northwest was chock full of Mr. Stickley’s furniture.
Since moving to Camano Island he has created over one thousand additional paintings, three movies as a SAG indie filmmaker, and five books -- an illustrated guide to Northwest history narrated by a flying pig: A Pictorial History of the Pacific Northwest Including the Future, four novels in the Wally Winchester adventure series: Original Finish, The Egg Rocker, Mother of God, and Soft Focus, along with the science textbook published by Avon Books, NY, NY in 1974..
He lives in a cliff-side cabin with views of the Olympic Mountains, eagles, and spouting whales out his front window while he works on his first Wally Winchester zombie adventure tentatively titled: Tintoretto’s Daughter.
