Adelaide Hunter’s love of stories began very early when she listened to her father reading “The Little Matchgirl” by Hans Christian Andersen. The story of the “Magic Faraway Tree” by Enid Blyton so captured her imagination, that she dreamed of living in a cooler climate, preferably somewhere in England, with a wood at the bottom of the garden where amazing adventures took place and children ate exotic delights such as pop cakes. It was in stark contrast to suburban Sydney where the summers were endless, brutally hot, and nothing exciting ever happened.

Next, she and a few students in her kindergarten class hit the big time when they appeared on an ABC news segment showcasing innovative teaching methods. She used scrabble-like pieces to spell her favourite word – ‘impossible.’

Adelaide has spent many of her adult hours working with gamma rays, positrons and sound waves. She has a Master of Science by research from the University of NSW, degrees from Sydney University and is published in a number of medical journals. She has worked at the University of Michigan in the USA and currently lives and works in Sydney.

Adelaide writes in a variety of genres and was most recently published in the anthology ‘Weaving Words’ by the collective Women about Women. She belongs to the writers’ group Write on Water.
