Dave Butler – Author Visit
Rediscovered Books is excited to announce that author Dave Bulter will be visiting the bookstore on January 26 at 6pm!
About the book: Charlie Pondicherry is a reader; what he really wants to do is have adventures, but his father won’t let him out of the house. When a gang of criminals kidnaps his father, Charlie has to lead the rescue party and become the adventurer he’s always dreamed of being. The Kidnap Plot is about fearless chimney sweeps, warrior pixie women, a troll lawyer with a broken heart, and a hero with a secret even he doesn’t know.
About the author:
I’m a novelist living in the Rocky Mountain west. My training is in law, and I worked as a securities lawyer at a major international firm and inhouse at two multinational semiconductor manufacturers before setting up in solo practice. I’m a consultant and corporate trainer, teaching business acumen to employees of world-class companies.
I am a lover of language and languages, a guitarist and self-recorder, and a serious reader. I am married to a powerful and clever woman (also a novelist) and we have three devious children, but they don’t appear much in this blog (they do recur with some frequency in my social media posts). This blog, with all its meandering and changes of pace, is about writing.
I have been writing fiction since 2010. I write speculative fiction (fantasy, science fiction, space opera, steampunk, cyberpunk, superhero, alternate history, dystopian fiction, horror and related genres) for all audiences. I have written and am writing novels for middle grade, young adult and adult readers. I’m published by Knopf (The Kidnap Plot), WordFire Press(City of the Saints, Rock Band Fights Evil, The Buza System), and Baen (Witchy Eye, forthcoming).
