Another book from Mundubbera's Eleanor
ELEANOR Butler draws her inspiration for writing not from personal experiences, but from what she hopes romance will be like when she finds her true love.
"My first book of eight short stories I wrote 18 months ago was called Love and Werewolves," Miss Butler said.
"Now my new book is called Werewolves and Romance, which is 10 short stories.
"Two of the stories are brand new with new characters and eight of them are continuations from book one."
Miss Butler launched her newest publication in the Mundubbera Library on November 13 with an afternoon tea and a book signing.
In attendance were many of Miss Butler's loyal readers lining up for her to sign.
Mundubbera resident Jane Shepherd said she enjoyed the first of the romance stories written by Miss Butler.
"The stories Eleanor writes are more for the teenage population but I really enjoyed them," she said.
"I find that the stories are very cleverly written and hold your attention throughout the read."
Miss Butler, who was born in Maryborough, has lived her entire life in Mundubbera, attended Mundubbera State School and now works for the council.
"I write from my heart and all the stories are set in small country towns, as this is the only life I know," she said. "I usually write after I go home from work and at weekends.
"I am always thinking about the next twist or turn in the story that I am writing at the time."
Eleanor's mum Judith Butler said she found it hard to understand how her quiet, shy little girl had the enthusiasm to do what she had done.
"I am just so proud of my little girl," she said.
"She has done all this by herself. Not only the writing but the book designs and everything that goes with it."
