Deb Hunter, Author & Historian

Spending most of her life in Tennessee and Georgia, Deb is an avid traveller with a keen sense of adventure visiting more than eighty countries. Deb’s fascination with the history of Tudor England began at an early age going back to her university years when she graduated with a B.A. in History. She has had a very successful business career and is only now able to virtually return to her passion for the past, due to a stage 4 cancer diagnosis in 2018.

Her All Things Tudor podcast blows the dust off the history books and brings the world of the Tudors back to life. Deb Hunter is a Pulitzer nominated, USA Today bestselling author, historian, and podcaster. She was elected to the U.K.’s Royal Historical Society in 2022. She actively promotes the craft of historical writing through affiliations with many professional groups including the American Historical Association, the Organization of American Historians, the
Dangerous Women Project for the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and Royal Oak Foundation, the US affiliate of the UK’s National Trust.

Her podcast often trends on Spotify in the History category and has been downloaded in 80+ countries since its launch in January 2022. It has been chosen as a GoodPods ‘Team Pick” and has been named to the Top 1% of podcasts by Listen Notes based on downloads and listener response. Her Facebook group of the same name is the largest Tudor history site on the platform with 40,000 members. Her website of the same name is the #1 Tudor website in the US; #3 worldwide.

In addition, Deb partnered with The Met, to serve as a media liaison for their exhibition, The Tudors: Art and Majesty in Renaissance England which launched in October 2022. During that time, the All Things Tudor podcast also hosted several historians behind the PBS series The Boleyn’s: A Scandalous Family, and the British American Business Council of
Atlanta and the Southeast recognized her accomplishments in October 2022. Recently, Deb worked with the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville on their production of SIX, a British musical comedy that is a modern retelling of the lives of the six wives of Henry VIII presented as a pop concert.
