About Holly Butler
Actress/songwriter/author Holly Butler had been living in Los Angeles, working as a T.V. and film actress when she first felt the burning desire to write a novel. She put her book-writing dreams on hold at the time to focus instead on a new career as a songwriter -- relocating to Nashville in 1998. Butler had some early songwriting successes. She wrote the Rebecca Lynn Howard single, “What a Shame,” in 2003, and had several Country Music cuts over the next decade. Butler also continued working as an actress in Nashville. She co-founded Big Bawl Baby Theatre Group, producing, and starring in numerous productions. She also appeared in several professional plays with the Tennessee Women’s Theater Project, and The Act-1 Theater Company, prior to the Covid lockdown.
The desire to complete a novel shelved far too long in her life’s bucket list, once again became Butler's priority, finally allowing her to see her dream come to fruition. Having worked as a Marilyn Monroe impersonator for 25 years in California, Nashville, and around the world, it became clear to her to weave her knowledge of Marilyn and her look-alike adventures into a fictional tale of a young woman searching for love & meaning while channeling the blonde icon. This is Holly Butler’s debut novel.
