About Painting Juliana
• Hardcover: 362 pages
• Publisher: Goldminds Publishing, LLC (May 20, 2014)
A young girl’s terrifying nightmare, five mysterious oil paintings and a red, flaming firebird all carry the same message:
Stand still, look up and let the funnel cloud suck you up inside.
It’s the last thing Juliana Birdsong wants to hear. Now a woman who’s losing everything, she’s still running from the dream, and it’s catching up fast. When her Alzheimer’s-stricken father’s canvases come to life exposing secrets, heartbreak and yearnings that mirror her own, Juliana discovers that some memories can be a blessing to forget.
Hit with devastating loss and betrayals, her old life stripped away, Juliana has no choice but to call on the person who’s never helped her before. Steering the chrome handlebars of a vintage motorcycle down a long, tapering highway, she must face her defining moment. It’s the only way she’ll gain the strength and courage to begin painting Juliana.
Engaging and funny, heart-rending and profound. Painting Juliana is superb. -Joe Holley, Columnist, Houston Chronicle
Hunter is a first-rate writer with a lot to say in a voice that is new, vivid and exceptional. -Cindy Bonner – Author of Lily and Right from Wrong
