Gail Huntley was born in Canton, New York. As a child, she moved to Long Lake, New York, where she has lived periodically throughout her life. She is a retired English teacher who has written and published two books. She is a playwright and several of her plays have been performed on stage. Her quirky articles have appeared in local newspapers. An avid woods walker, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her family. She continues to reside in her beloved Adirondacks part time and Virginia part time. She wrote and directed a play depicting the true story of the mysterious disappearance of the steamship, The Buttercup.
In the summer, Gail facilitates a writers' group that meets each week at the Long Lake Library. All writers are welcome, beginners and published writers alike. Members write for about an hour, and then read aloud what they have written. Toward the end of summer, the group holds an open-mic event where writers read their works publicly.
Gail and her sister are also doing "The Adirondack Walkabout." They are walking through all 106 towns and villages in the Adironadcks, and Gail is posting related pictures and historical-interest items on her website and blog.
