Raymond comes from Christchurch and now lives in Dunedin. He has qualifications in science, education and children’s literature. He’s been a community worker, a gardener, a teacher, and is now a writer and editor.
Raymond's junior novels, Sting and Wings, and his picture book, Flight of the Honey Bee, are about bees. The novels are told from a bee’s viewpoint and The Sydney Morning Herald wrote that "Huber creates courageous characters with whom readers will empathise instantly". Flight of the Honey Bee was published in the US, UK, Australia, Denmark and NZ; Kirkus Reviews said, "This handsome, respectful volume deserves a place on the shelf … it succeeds in accurately dramatizing honey bee behavior."
Peace Warriors tells 20 true stories of people who chose non-violent resistance in times of conflict. David Hill described it as "compelling and engrossing". His latest picture book is Gecko, illustrated by Brian Lovelock, about the survival tricks of an amazing lizard. Raymond’s other works include textbooks, School Journal articles, readers for US schools, radio plays, short stories and poems.
His next book will be about trees.
