The English Informer tracked me down! #RPBP

Talking with Author Sarah Jane Butfield.

Author Sarah Jane Butfield was born in Ipswich and raised in rural Suffolk, UK. Sarah Jane is a wife, mother, ex-qualified nurse and now an internationally published author. Married three times with four children, three stepchildren and two playful Australian Cattle dogs, she is an experienced modern day mum to her ‘Brady bunch’, but she loves every minute of their convoluted lives.

Sarah Jane, the roving Florence Nightingale, fulfilled her childhood dream of becoming a nurse and went on to utilise her nursing and later teaching qualifications to take her around the world. She is now an international best-selling author of three travel memoirs set in Australia and France.

What was your inspiration to write?
"I have always enjoyed writing but during my adult life to date, it has been confined to my personal journals. I came to being a self-published author completely by accident or I should say under the influence of Mother Nature. I have had a long held dream of writing a romantic fiction novel. Writing this romance novel is a bucket list item and so I decided to work towards it by enrolling on a course in creative writing to upskill to be able to hopefully one day achieve my dream. I haven’t written a romance novel yet, but I have inadvertently self-published three travel memoirs set in Australia and France. The most rewarding part of being a self-published author is the complete freedom in relation to my books content, images and distribution."
