Interview with Grant Butler

Grant Butler, author of Heroin Heiress has been kind enough to stop in for an interview today!

Jo: Welcome, Grant! Thanks for stopping in. Please tell us a little something about your book?

Grant: The Heroin Heiress is my debut novel and I couldn’t be more happy this is my first novel.

J: That is awesome! What inspired you to write it?

G: The book started out as a story I posted online. Once I posted it, I thought that would be the end of it and didn’t give what came next a second thought. I had no idea it would get anywhere near the attention it did. Seeing the passionate responses and debates people were having over it made me think more in depth about the story. The book is the result of that. 

J: That’s really cool. I love when books have an organic creation story like that. What was your favorite part of writing Heroin Heiress?

G: It was great seeing people discover the story and being so engaged. I also enjoyed getting to know the characters and flushing them out as people. 

J: That always my favorite part, too. What was your least favorite part?

G: By far the hardest part of the book was figuring out what the main character did for work. I had to think about it for quite some time, but when the answer came it made perfect sense. 

J: That was an unexpected answer, but I like how much thought you put into it. Do you have a favorite character? Why are they your favorite?

G: Mrs. Arlington. It was a pleasure spending time with her and getting to know her. She’s someone I would love to spend time with in real life. 

Jo: That’s really cool! What do you have planned next?

G: I’m working on another book that is set in the same universe and shares the setting, but is with a completely new set of characters and a brand new plot. I’m very excited about it. 

Jo: That sounds like fun! Where can people find more of you and/or your work?

G: You can follow me on my Twitter @thegrantbutler 

J: Excellent. We’re almost out of time, but before you go, please tell us one interesting thing about yourself or your book.

G: I have no idea what inspired the story the book grew out of, aside from the fact that it was just an interesting image that popped in my head. 

J: I love it! And now, it’s time for the Flash fun round!

Thanks again to Grant for stopping by! Check out his book Heroin Heiress, available on Amazon.

Shortly after breaking up with his unfaithful girlfriend Allison, college professor Vince O’Malley gets a call about a break-in at his house, and whoever was there left a disturbing calling card. Police immediately suspect Allison, who has completely lost her mind and is eventually found and committed to a mental hospital. But when Allison turns up dead from a drug overdose, and other strange coincidences begin happening, Vince begins to wonder what he really knows for sure about his ex-girlfriend. Why did she lose her mind? Why was her apartment trashed so badly? And why was she so obsessed with a ratty old stuffed bear? Along with Chloe Vale, an old friend of Allison’s from their school days, the two begin to learn more about Allison’s strange background and twisted family. Eventually, the two set out to find the truth about Allison’s death, her personal history, her mysterious and rich mother, and the strange disappearance of her father.
