Writer Profile: Gerry Huntman

Gerry Huntman is a father, husband, writer, publisher and IT Consultant. This means he is also a very good juggler. He lives in Melbourne, Australia, with his wife and young daughter. Gerry has created fantastical worlds since he was a young child and was a creative influence in the Australian Roleplaying scene for decades. Recently he made the decision to write seriously for publishing and has already published a dozen short stories in many journals and anthologies. He is working on an epic fantasy, its sequel, and a modern day science fiction action adventure. His current project is a dystopian Young Adult novel, and is not far away from publishing an anthology of short stories based on his Evyntyde fantasy world.

Gerry is a team member of the IFWG Publishing company and has worked hard to help new writers emerge in the industry. As a writer as well, it was inevitable that he would publish through our company, and it is with pleasure that we took on his mid-grade fantasy novel, Guardian of the Sky Realms. Gerry has published with other companies, and we consider it fortunate to have him on our authors book, as well as team member.

This is the cover of Guardian of the Sky Realms. The following is the official blurb:

Maree Webster is an 'almost-emo' from the western suburbs of Sydney, Australia. She hates school and only has a few friends. She has an infatuation with Angels and Fallen Angel stories. Life was boring until she one day decided to steal a famous painting of angels from a small art gallery.

Her life will never be boring again. She meets a stranger at the gallery who seems to know her. She stumbles into a world where cities float in the sky, and daemons roam the barren, magma-spewing crags of the land below.

But not all is well. Maree is turning into something she loves but at the same time, fears. Most fearful of all is the prospect of losing her identity, what makes her Maree, and more importantly, human. She has ties to the human world that she can't bear to sever.

Guardian of the Sky Realms takes the reader on a journey through exotic fantasy lands, but also across the globe, from Sydney to Paris, and the Himalayas to Manhattan.

It is about transformation.
