Mike and Kim Nunneley, authors of The Family Wild Hunting, Fishing and Outdoor Arts activity books live on 50 wooded acres and their cottage on Long Lake near Alpena, Michigan. The couple are parents to Robbie, Ashley, Joshua, Ian, Courtney and grandparents to Gabe, Izzy, Nathan and Will. Both Alpena High School alumni, Mike graduated from Central Michigan University and Kim holds a master’s degree in comparative religion and a graduate certificate in Holistic Healthcare from Western Michigan University. She also attended the Iliff School of Theology in Denver, focusing on adult spiritual formation for a year.
Mike has coached Varsity Girls Golf, High School level boys’ and girls’ hockey, as well as championship girls softball. In addition, he taught photography for nine years at Alpena Community College. Kim has served as a director of lifespan religious education with two Unitarian Universalist churches and has been heavily involved in adult education in venues as diverse as university settings, small United Church of Christ congregations, TED talks and public adult education programs.
Mike owned two professional photography studios and photo centers prior to the digital revolution and currently is a commercial lender for a Michigan-based credit union. Mike has authored two books on finance in addition to the Family Wild collection. Kim is also a certified Yoga Therapist, qigong instructor and spiritual director. She is the author of twenty books, ranging from science fiction to poetry to comparative religion and has added the Family Wild outdoor art titles to her growing list of work. She is the host of the Deep Communion radio program here at ArtistFirst.
Arguably one of the worst hunters and fisherman of all time, Mike learned the love of the outdoors at “Camp” and the “Cottage” at Long Lake. As a hand-weaver, artist, musician and nature enthusiast, Kim loves the chaos and inspiration of raising chickens, rabbits, as well as a typically out-of-control garden.
