Hunter Darden has been on an incredible journey of self-discovery following the deaths of all three of her siblings and her father. With a hurting heart, she made many poignant, powerful stops down the path toward healing and ultimate resolution. She arrived at a place of contentment, as she discovered that our lives are like a great tapestry. "We must embrace the knots and learn from them. It only makes the gold and silver threads that much more beautiful...if you allow it for yourself."

Hunter told her teacher she was going to be an author when she grew up. She graduated from Meredith College with a B.A. in psychology. She wrote her first book, The Everlasting Snowman, after her father's death as a gentle explanation for her sons about the natural cycle of life. It was the catalyst for four more children's books, a photography book and a novel. She wrote Tapestry-a story of the healing of the soul-after her sister's unexpected death to find healing...and she did. Tapestry and The Everlasting Snowman are widely used by hospices to aid others in grief resolution.

 Hunter is also a humor/inspiration newspaper columnist, having written for The Charlotte Observer and The Statesville Record and Landmark. She has been the recipient of the 2005 Meredith College Career Achievement Award and the Excellence in Creative Writing Award given by the NC Federation of Women's Clubs.

Some of the magazines that have featured Hunter are Better Homes and Gardens magazine, Writer's Digest, Today's Woman, Carolina Country and Houston Woman.

Hunter enjoys speaking to a wide variety of ages and topics. She speaks to children in the school system, women’s organizations, hospices, teacher conferences and library programs, senior centers and retirement homes.
