About the Author

I've read what many other fiction authors have written in this section with dismay. I get the feeling many believe they are applying for a job. 'I'm a thirty-eight year.. I grew up in a small.. I have two.. I studied at the University of.. - blah, blah, blah.'

None of that matters. As a writer, I have a job already - to entertain my readers. That's the minimum requirement. The ultimate achievement is to enthrall, beguile and compel them to want to keep on reading my words.

A fiction author uses words and order to create a sketch; a framework for the reader's imagination to fill-in and give color to an imaginary scene. The background and experiences of the author should have minimal bearing on this two-way creative process. With my fiction, it's 100% about enjoyment.

Everything comes from the imagination: to suggest otherwise would lead people to conclude that someone like a Koontz must surely be a psychopathic killer, or a Wilbur Smith must have killed a thousand lions with his bare hands, or J.K. must have wizards in her garden, to be able to write the incredible works that they create.

More About the Author


It might be fiction, but that doesn't mean you're not in it. Even if I don't know you, there's a chance I walked by you once, I noticed your hair, your mouth or your shoes. The way you ate that sandwich. Perhaps I overheard you talking. Arguing, maybe. Laughing at a joke or a distant stranger's misfortune. Even if you are the silent, invisible type who always ducked your head at school when the teacher was about to pick a student to read aloud to the class. Especially you - you have a story. A hidden story that you have bottled-up. I want to devour it. And my eyes can see it. You have fooled the others, but not me.

Silent observations blend into a montage, that combine into an entity that is given a name. Not yours. Never yours. But a name that sounds like the name of someone who would do the things that you do. And I do know what you do. I see it... everywhere.

Writing is an affliction, that condemns the poor sufferer to form a relationship with a keyboard and a monitor, making friends and enemies - literally. And then, trying to find ways to make love to them or kill them or break their hearts. To lead them on, only to crush them just so you can make it better at the end. Or, make it even worse, if that works better.

Do not ever form a relationship with a writer. It can only end in tears. Or laughter, or heartbreak, or... in a way that will be different. That's important. But ending - that's the essential part. Then you can start again. A new page - a blank page. Now that's exciting. I can go anywhere I choose - until the characters take over and demand to tell their own stories.

Crazy, eh?

When I write a book I'm looking for an original story. I'm not following a recipe, formula or rule book. I absolutely hate the concept where authors choose their category, then write to it. To my mind that is the tail wagging the dog - marketing that dictates a book is pigeonholed as a Romance, a Thriller, A Contemporary Adult, A Coming of Age story, etc. My books are all of that - none of that, and much, much more. Because that's what real life is. I write textured stories that, hopefully, combine life's highs and lows and gives you, the reader, something fresh on every page. To put it another way, I am doomed to never find success because the marketing machine has no hole for me. I'm writing in an era that ended about five years ago.

Stories that require a novel to tell themselves have many, many facets, many characters, and many sub-stories. By way of example, I truly do not understand why so many books today have the ubiquitous picture/drawing of a ripped male chest on the cover. Okay - I do know why - it is code for "graphic sex-scenes inside" proceed if that is the ONLY thing you ask of a novel. And you do.

Seriously ladies, you can do better. I would point out, the internet is full of stuff like that - with real-time moving body parts and in living color... for free. Except you probably can't watch it on the train on the way to work. But you can read an eBook - I get that. Have I missed the point? Is this solely about sex? Do stories not count anymore?

Why not a well thought out story that entertains, develops, excites, enlightens, involves your brain and has an occasional sex scene woven into its plot? A book that draws you completely into the lives of its characters and compels you to want to keep reading, just as you arrive at your train station. Damn! You may well find it more entertaining than a lame plot woven into a 120+page sex scene. The problem is - finding those novels. And those ripped chests do catch your eye...

Before eBooks came along, publishing houses separated the chaff from the wheat when it came to what the public was actually offered to choose from. Not today. You need to do that yourself and it's near impossible to wade through the avalanche of new books every day to find a gem. So, it is no one's fault, it is very easy to get stuck in a rut- especially a mommy-porn, rut.

I would love you to give one of my books a try. I write with one purpose in mind - to entertain my reader. And, yes, you will find the occasional piece of mommy-porn, but it is there because the character's demand it. Obviously, we all have different ideas of what is entertaining. But, if you like the movies Richard Curtis and Nancy Myers make; full of believable humor and real-life situations that evoke empathy, then you are the reader I'm focusing on. (Apologies for using the movie reference, it was easier than trying to list some recent books.)

Oh! About me: I'm a guy. I've lived long enough to have seen some things and I'm old enough to now put some of it together. I write because I love it. Contact me at

Travel, romance, comedy, emotion, and intrigue…what more could you ask for? These are just a few of the things this talented writer has laced throughout this story that will captivate you and leave you wanting more! The characters are so enjoyable and eloquently woven into this tale that will touch on all of your emotions, which I just loved! I didn’t want to put the book down and nearly finished it one evening. I was entertained and really enjoyed every aspect of the book. The author Peter Butler really won me over in this well written piece, which I highly recommend!

This author’s style of writing had me doubled over in laughter throughout this book. With every situation Gary finds himself in (whether self-inflicted or unintentional) I found myself getting pulled more and more into the story. The journey these characters go on is both hilarious and poignant, a fun depiction of self-discovery. This is a story of love, finding answers, and finding your purpose all while traveling between England and Australia - two amazing countries. Be prepared laugh and get sucked into this book for the next few hours.

I came across Garrett and Sunny while looking for a fun interesting read that would be able to capture my attention. I am so glad I did. The author came up with a wonderful plot that kept me guessing what was going to happen with each turn. The characters were lovable and so much fun to read about. This is one of those books that really had it all, adventure, suspense, tons of emotion, and a good bit of humor as well. I will surely be checking out more books by this author soon.

This is absolutely hilarious. These guys just keep you laughing all the way through the book. It’s got a little of everything which keeps the reader engaged from beginning to end. The characters are presented in a way that just makes you laugh and smile with every adventure. It is uniquely a guessing game at what they will present with each adventure from England to Australia. Perfect characters for continuing adventures.
I certainly hope Peter gives us more!

I don't know which character captures your heart more in this endearing tale. Garrett & Sunny is the charming tale of a well-off-to-do man named Garrett. Up until now Garrett's life has been pretty normal, but things take a drastic turn for the 'different' when Garrett wakes up after a pretty intoxicated evening to discover some women's items in his room. The kicker? He has no idea who they belong to... well, until he meets Sunny; the quirky and beautiful girl who's pretty sure she gave up her v-card to Garrett- even though Garrett can't remember it. As if that piece of information isn't enough to sink in, over the next two weeks Garrett's life continues to get more and more absurd. His sweet little old grandmother sends him off to Australia where he embarks on a journey to keep oil companies from destroying the homelands and culture of the aboriginals. With the help of an ancient aboriginal man (who seems to be stuck in some kind of time continuem) he may either discover his purpose in life... or not.

This laugh-until-your-gut-hurts tale is literally one of a kind. Between every quirky and crazy character introduction, I found myself more and more curious of where in the world this charming tale was headed. Not a single chapter passed by where I wasn't reeling in laughter. Author, Peter Butler, brought Garrett's story to life in hilarious detail. Even amidst the drama, the plot twists, and the scenery changes- Garrett's crazy little tale kept an upbeat mood that made it a totally enjoyable to read.

Sunny's character captured my heart right from the beginning. With her 'Zoe Dechanel' essence I feel as though almost all twenty-something year old girls will adore her.

The core of this story is the dynamic between Garrett and Sunny, their sexy games, and the flirtation that starts “backwards”, after a one night stand of which Garrett has no recollection (and apparently resulted in Sunny losing her virginity... allegedly).
Written in the subjective first-person perspective, the story is told through Garrett’s viewpoint. The chosen narrative works outstandingly well mainly because of Garrett’s personality. His quirk remarks and occasional double entendres made me laugh out loud (I don’t recommend reading this book in a place where you are expected to be silent...). The multiple meanings explored through the protagonists’ inner reflections and dialogues are a testimony to Peter Butler’s understanding of the polysemy concept, which was a grateful surprise.
The changing of setting from England to Australia brings more depth to the story. When Garrett finds out about a mining company named Plutarch drilling in the outback and polluting the billabongs, and as a result hurting the aborigines’ way of living, he is determined to help saving them.
Overall, if you want to read a grown-up love story, laugh and learn a lot about the Australian outback in the process, this is the book for you. 5/5 stars.

A enthralling hilarious read! I devoured this book and still wanted more! The characters are developed very well, with a story line that has many twists and surprises. The author creates vivid imagery and I loved the interweaving of Australian and British culture. The humour has substance and adds colour to the depth of the story line very well. The story did really well to keep me hooked (so much so that I actually finished it after a couple of days!) If you're after a romantic adventure comedy, this book really does tick all the boxes (and then some!) Highly recommended.
