About Me

P5I always wanted to be a homebody and live in one place for my entire life, but fate had other plans. In the past sixteen years of my married life, we’ve moved seven times, including from one coast to the other. Southern New Jersey is home now and I love it.  I have two young children, a husband who begrudgingly pays for my ebook addiction, and two dogs who think they’re people.  After college, I spent eight years as an executive assistant before “retiring” at twenty-seven to become a stay-at-home mom. I have a soft spot for self-published authors, Ghirardelli chocolate, muscle cars, and men with tattoos.  Most people who know me don’t know I have a tiger tattoo or that I have an unhealthy obsession with The Simpsons.

I love sunsets, several cups of coffee in the morning, and I absolutely cannot live without books. When I’m not busy with my family, you’ll find me sitting at my desk working on any number of projects, including reading, reviewing, and writing.

I adore talking to fans and other authors, so please write to me!  You can email me at rebutlerauthor@gmail, find me on twitter @rebutlerauthor, or join me on Facebook at R.E.ButlerAuthorPage.

You’ll find my best-selling Wolf’s Mate, Wiccan-Were-Bear, Necklace Chronicles, Ashland Pride, Hyena Heat, Wilde Creek, Norlanian Brides, Arctic Shifters, Were-Zoo, Saber Chronicles, and Uncontrollable Shift series books on sale at Smashwords, B&N, Apple iBookstore, Kobo, and Amazon.

    I just read “The Wolf’s Mate”. Loved it! I hope there eill be more!

    • R.E. Butler says:

      Thanks for stopping by, Debbie! I have six books in the Wolf’s Mate series, and (hopefully) a few spin-offs from some different characters as well. Book 2 is with my beta right now, I can’t wait to get to editing! Thanks again, I’m so glad you loved TWM1. Best, R

  • Nancy says:

    HI!! I have read the first two werebear novellas and The wolfs mate. I am about to start on Daeton’s story and I am super stoked. I have recently stumbled upon what I like to call Native American Paranormal Romance.. and I’m am hooked. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for interesting reads? I love your stories and whilst i am waiting for your next books I’d like to have something to fill my time 🙂 If you have any suggestions please let me know. Thank you for your time and your wonderful stories. Keep it up!!

    • R.E. says:

      Hi Nancy! I’m so glad you liked both series! To be honest, I don’t know that I have ever read any paranormal native american romances (except mine of course). I searched on amazon, and there seem to be a good number of them, but whether they are good or not would be up to the reader. If you find any, let me know! It’s part of the reason I wrote the wiccan series in the first place – I couldn’t find that exact combo of native american shifter and sexy witch. 🙂 I do love shifter novels. Some of my favorite authors are Bianca D’Arc, Laurann Dohner, and Shelley Laurenston. Best, R

      • Bev says:

        Hi RE and Nancy,
        I love most paranormal romances and have a suggestion on a native american style novel, Shadow People by C.L. Bevill. I have just finished the first book of the Wolf’s Mate series and have decided you to be one of my new fave authors. All my best to your future of continuing to impress us, your fans, with such wonderful stories and loveable characters.

        • rebutler says:

          Thanks for the advice, Bev! I’ve read some of CL’s books before, but not that one. I’m glad to be one of your new fav authors! Thank you for sharing and for the amazing compliments!!

  • Teresa E says:

    Love the books.

  • Shawnnita says:

    Hello – I just got my nook and found your books Bear Claw and A Flash of Fang and I have to say I really enjoyed them my only complaint is I cant get A price for a Princess untill get goes to Barnes & Noble do you know when that will be? I also just read your reveiws on the Mate series so I will be getting those books also. I hope you write fast because I love to read and I usually read a book a night and since I really like yours I have read them twice can’t wait for the the next story about ashe and axe brothers hurry I need something good to read : ) Have a wonderful day and keep them coming .

    • R.E. Butler says:

      Hi Shawnnita! I’m so glad you enjoyed Claw & Fang! Princess, unfortunately won’t be out to the Nook store for several more weeks (due to processing delays). The first two wolf books are available on Nook now, the third will hopefully be available in August. They can all be purchased for any device on the smashwords site as well. 🙂 A book a night? I’m so impressed! If you like Goodreads, I’m on there as well, we can compare reading lists! I’m so glad you stopped by….I’m writing as fast as I can! Best, R

  • Kat says:

    Just read Callie’s story and was so happy for her character to find her happily ever after – she deserved it. But after falling in love with Jason and Cadence in the first of this series, I’m so sad for how they were portrayed in this book and the way their relationship was denigrated. I know that’s probably more like real life, but don’t we all prefer to think of our beloved characters in forever bliss?

    • R.E. Butler says:

      Hi Kat! When I was writing the story, I knew that the pull of Callie and Cades relationship wouldn’t lend itself to staying whole as it had been, especially with the lions’ need to stay with their families. Although hard (it was one of the more difficult things I’ve written), it was necessary for there to be a clean break of things and to let them go their own separate ways. If Callie had always had a foothold back in Allen, she wouldn’t have been able to thrive in Ashland, and I needed her to be able to rely on them and for them to know that she only wanted them. Jason and Cadence aren’t done yet. They appear in Michael’s story (which should be out in October) as well as in future stories as they’re planned. Yes, forever bliss is a wonderful thing, but I went at their story realistically because I felt like they both deserved that. Hope you don’t mind my long winded explanation. 🙂 Thanks for commenting! All the best, R

  • cappi says:

    Never ever, ever, ever, ever stop writing! Die hard fan to the end. So excited to read Wolf Mate 4! Love your work…and write faster 😉

  • Kayla says:

    Wow! I love all your books, I just like how you write your characters with such thought and care. While the storyline makes me want to never stop reading! And the way you write about the supernatural is amazing. Every time you release a new book I immediately buy it and fall in love with the new set of characters! Like the new book, I love Michael and so happy he found his mate. Plus I get a update on how the other characters are doing! I already look forward to the new book. 🙂

  • Candice says:

    Thanks for the great book and I am so glad you were safe during the storm! Was wondering if Book 4 will come out for nook anytime soon or should I buy it with amazon. I have your other books on my nook and I would like to keep them all in the same place….but then again I want to read book 4 ASAP! let me know. 🙂 thanks!!

  • Mymate says:

    Ok …I’m waiting for Alex to find his mate. Oh and James to. Can’t wait for the next book. Just finished seducing Samantha.

  • A.J. says:

    I love all of your books and have read each one since getting my Kindle for Christmas. I was curious as to when the next Wolf Mate book will be released along with the Hyena series.


    • R.E. Butler says:

      Hi AJ! The next book due out in The Wolf’s Mate series will be Logan’s, and it should be out in mid-May. I’m not sure when the next hyena heat book will be out, but I hope to have either a HH or a mountain lion book out at some point this summer. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Natasja says:

    Will you ever publish your books in paperback ? Hyena Heat ? Maybe ?

  • RKO chica says:

    I recently just got all of your Wolf Mate books and finished all of them in less than a week, I loved them all! That is why I got the spin off books. I would like to tell you that you’re now one of my favorite authors.

  • RKO chica says:

    I just finished your Wicca -Were-Bear series and I loved it! I was just wondering if Rysk and Tyrant were getting a book? I saw on your author facebook page that the inspiration for Rysk was Randy Morton and now that I read the book I can see him as that role.

    • RKO chica says:

      I meant Orton my autocorrect doesn’t reconize the name.

    • R.E. Butler says:

      I’m so glad to hear that you have enjoyed the wiccan -were-bear series! Yes, I do have plans for Rysk and Tyrant to have a book, but I’m not sure when it will come about. I’d like to write about them, as well as others in the Medes Realm, including the servant girls and some of the centaurs. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and commenting! Best, RE

  • Kez says:

    I cannot wait for your next book… I usually read them on the day of release.

    • R.E. Butler says:

      Thanks, Kez! I’m honored that you read my books so quickly! 🙂 I hope to have a book out in July (2nd Hyena Heat) and one in August (Ashland Pride) but I haven’t made any official publication plans so I can’t speculate on specific dates yet. I’ll post on the blog and FB when I know for sure, though. Thanks for stopping by the blog! Best, RE

  • Kelly says:

    Omg I love your books I’ve read them all,
    I was wondering when the next ashland pride book was going to be released and if there was a 2nd Hyena heat.
    Ooooooh I hope there is as I’d like to hear more about all the brothers from Asland pride finding their one true mate xx

    • R.E. Butler says:

      Thank you Kelly! I’m so glad that you’ve enjoyed the books. I’m hopeful to have the 2nd hyena heat book out in July and the 2nd Ashland book out in August, but I haven’t made any firm publication dates yet. I’ll post here on the blog when I know for sure. 🙂

  • RKO chica says:

    I just purchase Every Dawn Forever and just finished it… It was great! Just as all your books ar. I can’t wait for the third. I love the way all the guys in the hyena series are so sweet, kind, and loving yet are still so manly that if harm or sadness threaten their mate they are ready to attack the problem to make her smile again. I love this book, if I could I would give it ten stars!

  • Eleanor Woods says:

    Just finished Lynk & Tavian story loved it was a little worried that the brothers would be able to share, but they did so on to the next brother (Grieg). Have 2 questions when can we expect Daeton to show up and is A Twitch of Tails #6 , if so I will have finished this series by the months end , then on to the mate series…

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Eleanor! Daeton is going to get a follow up story to continue on in her world in the other realm. I have started it, but don’t expect it to be out until next year. Yes, A Twitch of Tail is the 6th book in the series and the last one to-date. I hope to have another one out before the end of the year. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the series!

  • Carol says:

    Just wanted to let you know that I love reading your books. The way you write makes you fall in love with each character. Love them all.

    • rebutler says:

      That’s such an awesome compliment, Carol, you totally made my day!! Thank you so much, I really appreciate your support and am so happy you’ve enjoyed my books and characters!

  • Love the new picture… Such a cutie pie you are… 🙂

  • Oh my God finished Ashlands 2 so sweet. Congratulations on it. Please tell me it’s another Werebear-Wiccan next.

    • rebutler says:

      Really glad that you enjoyed the 2nd Ashland Pride book! Yes! The next book will be Jes’ story from the wiccan-were-bear series! It will be out in mid-October, I’m waiting for the final publication date to be ready to go and then I’ll announce it! Thanks so much for stopping by and really happy to have you as a fan!

Please keep on writing these amazing books. I take peek to see when others will be published and you can be sure I will be at Amazon purchasing them!

  • Carrie says:

    Love all of your books!! Can’t wait for more of the Cats, they’re may favorites. Any chance there will be some dragons in the future? Think you could do awsome stories with them. Keep up the great work and I will keep buying and reading.

    • rebutler says:

      That’s really sweet, Carrie! I actually have a story in mind for dragons, I just have to find the time to write it, LOL! I appreciate the kudos and kind words, maybe next year I’ll have a chance to bring dragons into the world!

  • Timothy Wallis says:

    I have just discovered your books. They look good! I am starting with the Ashland series.

    To an earlier message from a fan that was interested in First Nations novels mixed with magic and the supernatural I would recomend the books by C E Murphy

    I love kindle books because there are no trees felled, there are no shipping fees, no waiting for delivery, and oh so much more compact.

    • rebutler says:

      Thank you, Timothy! I hope you enjoy the Ashland series and thanks for sharing! All the best, RE

  • Misti says:

    I first picked up one of your books in August and now own and have read them all. I think you have a great imagination. I look forward to every book and read them almost as soon as I get them.

    • rebutler says:

      Thank you so much, Misti! I’m glad to have you as a fan and I’m so happy that you’ve enjoyed my stories! All the best, RE

  • Blanche says:

    Can’t wait for the next book in all the different series . I have read and reread them waiting on new ones. Thanks again for the different stories

  • Dawn says:

    Hi R E,
    Have read your books and loved them. I looked up your projects and you are very busy. Was wondering though, about the Hyena Heat, with Bliss and her guys? I see that you’re busy, but wow, what a series!

  • Heather says:

    I really like your books. I was wondering if you thought of making a character list for your books. It could help us keep them straight when we are reading your different books. I thought this would help other people out as well.

    • rebutler says:

      Hi Heather! Yes, I do get asked about this and I think it’s a great idea, I just haven’t had the time to put one together yet. Thank you so much for the suggestion, I really appreciate it! All the best, RE

  • cynthia greenwald says:

    Please finish Vincent’s fated mate. I am hooked on these stories

    • rebutler says:

      The next books in the series will be out next year during the holidays. I won’t be releasing anymore in the series this year. I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed it!
