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.

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.

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!

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.

Peter Butler’s realistic romp between two continents is the intriguing story of protagonist Garrett Nixon, a hedge fund manager from the UK who simultaneously acquires a mysterious girlfriend and an inheritance which comes with an Erin Brockovich-type environmental mission: stop the evil fracking corporation from polluting the billabongs of rustic Australia.

The author hooks readers from the very first line, immediately and completely engrossing his victims in this addictive page-turner as we follow the protagonist’s first-person narration of his circumstances. Waking up in his flat with an unknown guest and no recollection of the previous evening, Garrett must discreetly piece together the particulars of his predicament.

Getting to know his new love interest, a beautiful and witty television producer named Sunny, would be adventure enough. However, Garrett receives an inheritance from his recently deceased grandfather which begins a concurrent adventure, this one involving travel to the Australian outback and encounters with Aborigines who seem to come straight out of the Crocodile Dundee movie franchise. And as previously mentioned, the goal of this trip is to check out the company whose shares Garrett inherited, a company whose environmentally unsound practices make the trip sound like an excursion best suited to Erin Brockovich, who would undoubtedly interview the locals for an inevitable class-action lawsuit against this greedy corporation determined to make money at all costs, environmental and otherwise.
