By the time she was 21 she was a manager and running hotels herself. At the age of 25 she had a wonderful son and decided a new career was for her. She started working on ambulances but took 7 month leave after a family member passed away. In this time she started to write Nick ‘Twisted Minds’, Sean helped her to write this book as it was heartbreaking for her to do on her own. She is currently in the process of writing her next book.

After much abuse Huntlands decided enough was enough and packed her and her sons things ready to leave their family home. Unfortunatly things were not so easy. He turned on himself. Self harming. How can I leave him now? ‘He will kill himself’. Said Huntlands in one report. After he tried to beat a train accross the railway track with her 5 week old baby in the car, she had to escape. Now both her and her son’s life were in danger. After escaping and moving into a womens refuge, Huntlands life changed. She had to give up work and claim benefits to live in the refuge. She became a vulnerable single mother of one. Life was hard living with 17 women and over 20 young children. Life was harder living alone with her son when the council found a house for them. They had to try and start again with their new life. Alone. Huntlands met a man who helped her to get back onto her feet again. He suggested she did more qualification and to get back into work. Taking this advise Huntlands started to gain qualifications. She started to work on ambulances, where she became a qualified Emergency Medical Technician and, training to become a paramedic. Though she was still thinking about her past and wanting to close the door on it. When she met Sean. Her view on life changed and he helped her to share things and let them out. So Huntlands decided to write about her experience.

    Dear Zoran,

    Thank you so very much for having the benefit, at the Hamilton Cafe for one of our members, Danielle Keller. It was such a generous act to do this and bring the community together and support Claudia and Samantha Keller. This event was so tragic and had an incredibly emotional response among the community. This is why it was so wonderful of you to open your heart and your Cafe to allow people to come together and show support. It is with hope that we may have the opportunity to work together to continue to support our wonderful Novato community.

    All the best and many thanks,

    Susan Johnson
    Novato Mothers Club Director (and a fellow Hamilton Resident)
