I met Dori Butler when I traveled to Iowa City last fall. She found out I was coming and got together the local SCBWI members and took me out to dinner. What a treat. I also got to meet her son a student at West High, a great writer himself. I fell in love with Dori's The Truth About Truman School which I read as I flew out to meet her. The last two days I have been glued to her books Do You Know the Monkey Man? and the sequel Yes, i know the Monkey Man. If you want suspense, mystery, and teenage angst all in a twin package and also want to see what life in a little town in Iowa is like, I'd highly recommend these books. Dori has written picture books, novels, and non-fiction. She's a wonderful human being, and very talented. Enjoy reading her interview below!
