Book dream is real

Central and North Burnett Times - - AROUND TOWN -

PROUD fam­ily mem­bers and friends of 20-year-old Eleanor But­ler gath­ered at the Mun­dub­bera li­brary re­cently for the launch of her first book, Love and Were­wolves.

Ever since at­tend­ing a lit­er­a­ture fes­ti­val in Year 12, Ms But­ler has en­ter­tained the pos­si­bil­ity of be­com­ing a pub­lished author.

“I’ve al­ways en­joyed read­ing, so it seemed a nat­u­ral pro­gres­sion to write,” she said.

Ms But­ler is em­ployed by North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil as a li­brary as­sis­tant and is sur­rounded daily by the printed word.

“Love and Were­wolves is a col­lec­tion of eight short sto­ries with teenage and young adult themes, such as find­ing your­self, se­cret crush, first love and the supernatural,” Ms But­ler said.

She is al­ready writ­ing a sec­ond book, which con­tin­ues where her first book leaves off.
