Trish Butler is the author of the Historical Fiction saga, Redway Acres, and now a new contemporary detective series based in the fictional New Jersey town of Rockmond.
Born in Norwich, in the county of Norfolk, England, Trish moved to Connecticut in the US, in 1999. Her daughter was born there two years later.
Currently, Trish works as Communications Director for the Connecticut Family Support Network (CTFSN) a non-profit organization that helps families with children with special needs. Trish’s own daughter is on the autism spectrum.
Redway Acres, which Trish calls Pride & Prejudice with horses and a healthy dollop of feminism, is set during the early 1800s in Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk, in the UK, an area that she knows well. Over the past nearly twenty years, Trish has got to know the tri-state area well too, and hopefully enough American English terms to make the new book sound authentic.
Trish always wanted to write a book and at age fifty, finally realized that dream. Three years later, at the end of 2018, Trish hopes to have five books in the Redway series published, and the first in her new series of Rockmond PD Mysteries.
