More About the Author

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Everything I write is fiction, except the true parts...

I began my working life in radio and then as a voice-over artist. Early on in my career I took a job with a T.V station as their Production Manager which had me writing, producing and frequently voicing the commercials we made. This led to offers of voice work from recording studios and advertising agencies. I loved my first involvement with writing, but the lifestyle of a voice-over artist won me over. This career deflection caused my days to be spent either talking encouragingly or shouting enthusiastically into microphones in recording studios instead of tapping out words on a keyboard.

A hiatus can be a good thing if you can learn from it and this choice exposed me to the written words of some truly excellent writers. (it's true - many fine writers pay their bills by writing advertising copy) They gave me a terrific appreciation of the importance of sentence structure: the way the words flow off the tongue and into the ear make a huge difference as to whether the message is received and accepted - or not. It is near impossible to make a poor script sound nice, but conversely, one that is well written just automatically sings and gives the listener (and reader) a bountiful choice of interpretation - of color and depth of understanding.

Believable, natural dialog and the description of action scenes are the areas I consider most important in my novels. Setting is also very important. Finding the right balance between description and narrative is a never ending challenge, but, I would prefer my readers remembered my scenes and story rather than the dress the protagonist wore or the house he or she lived in. This balance is also critical in the way a character's feelings and aspirations are developed. Too much character 'soul searching' in one passage of the book can lead readers to become disinterested - and we don't want that!

As a writer my job is to be a storyteller - to entertain the minds behind the eyes that read the words. That is the minimum requirement - the ultimate achievement is to enthrall, beguile and compel those minds to want to keep on delving deeper into my stories.

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. Simply put, we authors are trying to get you to visualize a story. Many authors like to give a resume to their readers, but I can't see how you knowing a fiction writer has a truck-load of kids or a PhD in something will help that process. With my stories, it's 100% about enjoyment and if some ill-informed nonsense is called for, then so be it.

I challenge you - check out Garrett & Sunny and Womanhood, and Kinky to see if a doctorate in anthropology and a dim understanding of contraception might have made them better stories.

All the best, Peter.

What a page turner for sure! Womanhood is a captivating romance novel with unexpected twists and turns as the story unfolds. For a young woman, Lauren Hart has heart and she is not afraid to fight for her promising future. With a well developed plot, the suspense keeps you on the edge of your seat. Although somewhat surprised, Lauren's decisions demonstrate her power and will heighten her ability to be an unstoppable woman. You will definitely not be disappointed with this book. I look forward to reading more from Peter Butler.

What a great read from Peter Butler. Butler's style of writing was at a good pace, and there wasn't a boring moment. I thought the scenes were very imaginative with very attachable characters. The mixture of suspense and romance was a great mixture, not too much, and not too little. I would recommend.

I really enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down. Lauren Hart makes for a likable and well drawn protagonist while the plots twists and turns kept me guessing all the way through. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read

Peter Butler’s expansive novel “Womanhood” delivers surprise after surprise. As a woman reading this novel, I found Lauren’s voice to be genuine, which is a unique turn considering this book is penned by a man. Certain times that is apparent, like when he speaks of her beauty often, yet it fits with the story and is actually a driving force of transformation.
When Lauren lost her father quite suddenly to a heart attack, she had no idea how just how this singular event would devastate her life later. When her mother remarries, it eventually opens a pit of despair for the young woman and leads to events that change everything.
The protagonist is many faceted, something that I find rare when he or she is a teen.
Intense, emotional and well written – this book offers up clever lines and deep thought. What would you do if you found yourself in her situation?

After reading Womanhood, I had to take a step back and regain my normal way of thinking. This was a very intense book with a reality all its own. With every page came a new challenge, surprise, or twist for Lauren. I would certainly agree with other readers that this book is truly a thriller. The author is a fantastic writer and I can't wait to read more of his work. Butler's writing provides a new perspective that I really appreciate. His character development, plot, and narrative were above and beyond my expectations.
I also enjoyed the fact tat the main character, Lauren, is a 17-year-old, yet it's not a YA book as it does involve some adult scenes. It was refreshing to have a young, female heroine in the genre and hope to see more characters like her. I would recommend this book for sure.

What an intense and mind tingling thriller. Peter Butler has written an absolute gem. Although it is fiction, it really makes you stop and think what you would do if you found yourself in the same situation as the main character, Lauren Hart. I do not like to talk about the plots of books that I read when I do a review as I would never want to ruin a good book for another reader. But I will say but the storyline is excellent! The author is very good with descriptive wording really makes all of the action in the story come on live in your imagination. There are also a lot of good twists and unexpected turns that truly keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time you are reading. A great book indeed! Five big stars!

What a drama-filled thriller and brain tingle that had me on the edge of my seat from the moment I started reading. Peter Butler has done a fantastic job of crafting an engaging, and over all great story! The storyline is exceptional and really flows quite nicely. There are just enough twists & turns presented and perfectly placed so you really don’t know what to expect next as you read. The main character, Lauren Hart, is very likeable and easy to relate to, so you really form this camaraderie & bond with her plights as you read along and get more engaged. I really was pulling for her. All-in-all I found this to be a great book and well worth putting on your winter reading list! I give it 5 big stars!
