Stephen Hunter was born in Wellington, New Zealand and was unwittingly cast as "the clown" from a young age. The label clearly sat well with Stephen, who quickly developed a great sense of comic timing, and a reputation as the "go to" funny guy. Very early in his career the camera beaconed. And after honing his skills on New Zealand Television, Stephen headed for Australia.
But it is his comedic ability that has Stephen in high demand on screen in both New Zealand and Australia. His strong resonant voice has also seen Stephen become one of Australasia's top Voice actors. These skills have been used to promote some of Australia & New Zealand's top companies and products. And in 2009, Stephen landed a lead role in the ABC animated series CJ the DJ, as the lovable Si. But it's on screen where his true passion lies - and of course he loves nothing more than making people laugh.
Darrel A. King has been writing ever since the age of eight. His first published work of fiction was penned during the fall of 1976 as a student of Mary Field’s Elementary School on South Carolina’s Daufuskie Island. This effort was an adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkein’s “The Hobbit,” that he also wrote and illustrated. It was published in the school’s quarterly periodical, “The Daufuskie Kid’s Magazine.” Darrel King has written stories and numerous poems, several of which were published in the 1995-1996 “Poetry Anthology” by the National Library of Poetry in Owings Mills, Maryland. During the 90s, Darrell King became inspired by and attracted to the lurid tales of inner city crime. Dramas he read in novels by great writers such as Donald Goines and Iceberg Slim captivated his attention. These tales prompted Mr. King to begin his literary career writing his very own stories of urban crime and inner city drama.
