Dave Butler is the author of the Jenny Willson mystery series, published by Dundurn Press. He’s a forester and biologist living in Cranbrook, British Columbia, in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains. His writing and photography have appeared in numerous Canadian publications. He’s a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal winner, and a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society. When he’s not writing, Dave is professionally involved in sustainable tourism at local, national and international levels and he travels extensively.
Dave is married to wife Heather, and has two grown daughters, two caring sons-in-law, and an amazing little grandson who makes the world a better place.
No! Full Curl is the first in a series that will include at least three books. The second novel, with a working title of “No Place for Wolverines”, will be available in 2018. The third in the series (working title of “In Rhino We Trust”) will be available in 2019. I have at least two more books sketched out beyond that.
I’m a long-time resident of Western Canada, and I’ve traveled extensively through the Pacific Northwest. I love the landscapes, from rich coastal forests to dry ponderosa pine grasslands to the high alpine.
I can’t give away any secrets, not only because I hope you’ll share the journey with me, but because only Jenny knows for sure. She’s always at least a step or two ahead of me. I get the sense that she will travel, perhaps because of a new love interest, and that she and her Parks Canada bosses will have to sort out their differences.
