About the author
Andrew Butcher writes supernatural suspense and dark fantasy tales brimming with fascinating characters, tantalizing mysteries, and jaw-dropping plot twists. After releasing his first novel, A Death Displaced, Andrew Butcher focused on continuing the Lansin Island series while helping thousands of fellow writers to realize their dreams through his online creative writing course, Write a Novel Outline from Scratch.
More interested in telling a good story than following the 'rules' of genre, Andrew takes an eclectic approach to his fiction. His paranormal suspense novels are sprinkled with elements of fantasy, mystery, and family drama. His dark fantasy tale, Fear the Wolf, is full of action, suspense, and enough mystery to keep readers guessing until the very end. Fantasy Book Critic described Fear the Wolf as "an intriguing new angle on the formula" and "a solid, well-structured book that should appeal to readers enjoying dark and intimate stories."
When Andrew isn't reading, writing, or binge-watching TV shows, he enjoys hand-feeding his pet tortoise and daydreaming about imaginary worlds filled with unforgettable characters.
