Patricia Butler


After teaching English for 30 years, I finally realized that I should follow my own lesson plan and write about what I know best. I know Western New York, its people, problems, and drama. I also have researched Native American culture, as well as the Amish way of life, and the Spiritualist Community in LilyDale. The stories of the people who make up these communities are what make my novels unique, yet universal. I hope you enjoy reading them.
