Author Finder API

Find the author and their email address from an article URL, with a simple API call.

"Our integration with Hunter has proven to be a hit not only with our customers (who love the ease and coverage of contact info it provides), but with our CTO, Casey, too. Making Casey happy is a tough thing to do, but here, it's Hunter's ease of integration, seamless API, and affordable cost that shine."
