Hello, and welcome. I’m so glad you’re here!
I’m Renée Butcher: Mama, Nana, and wearer of many Creative hats; of the latter, writer, artist, music maker, and storyteller are a few of my favorite.
As a writer, I’ve penned everything from short stories to strategic marketing copy to love songs about cowboys. My work has appeared in local and national publications, and I was honored to have my essay “Reunion” selected for Portland’s Listen to Your Mother inaugural show. You can also read me on my blog “The Good Hearted Woman,” where I write about travel, food, music, and living the good life in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Among my current projects is Bicycle Boy [working title], a braided biographical novel that revolves around a small-town murder over chickens in 1936 and my father’s experiences as a telegram delivery boy in Portland, Oregon in the early days of World War II. I’ll be sharing excerpts from that in the future.
Thanks again for stopping by. I hope you’ll make it a habit!
