VJ Books Presents Author Stephen Hunter!

Author Stephen HunterStephen Hunter was born March 26, 1946 in Kansas City, Missouri. He graduated from Northwestern in 1968 with a degree in journalism.

Most of Stephen Hunter's novels feature his favorite character, Bob Lee Swagger. Swagger is a retired Marine Gunnery Sergeant who was born in 1946 and raised in Blue Eye Arkansas. Bob Lee joined the Marines, forging a successful career as a Marine Sniper, serving three tours in Vietnam, working with Special Operations, and earned the nickname 'Bob the Nailer' for his uncanny ability with a rifle. Despite official counts crediting him with 87 combat kills, in reality he has killed a total of 391 men.

In 2015's bestseller, I, RIPPER, Hunter turned his attentions to 1888 and Whitechapel, London to follow the mystery of that time and place of Jack the Ripper.

Hunter lives in Baltimore, Maryland.
