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, she 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, UK, an area that she knows well. Over

Trish Butler No sorry, not a very good answer, but horror is not my thing to watch or read, or write.
What a horror that is!

Firstly, I'm wondering if I would have to stay there? I'd rather not go if that's the case as I am a home body and love my creature comforts.
Secondly, assuming I don't have to stay, can I selfishly pick Redway Acres? I would love to see if my own creation stood up to reality, and of course I would love the characters to be in residence! If they are, then Helena could help me learn to ride. All my horse stuff is from my imagination, my daughter's experience with therapeutic riding and my wonderful sister-in-law Billie Henry who makes it all sound credible.
Thirdy, assuming I don't have to stay and I cannot pick my own creation... Santa Teresa, CA. I love Kinsey Millhone from Sue Grafton's Alphabet series, she is everything I would love to be (if I wasn't me). Plus the 80s is my era. I've been reading of the life of Kinsey Millhone since then. Who wouldn't want to met Henry Pitts and Dietz?(less)

Soundtrack 2 My Life

Strictly speaking, the title of this blog should be ‘Soundtrack 2 My Books’! I don’t know if you are like me, but I often find myself singing a song that has been triggered by a word or phrase someone has said. For example, I was on a conference call with my boss when she had to leave her desk momentarily. We had been discussing a person we had given an award to called Kiki and ‘Don’t Go Breaki...

Harriet, is the last surviving Wyndham in her family and has inherited the enormous Wyndham estate, on the outskirts of Bath, in Somerset.
