Debut Novel ‘Wild Butterflies’ is on sale now



The tale of three generations — mother, son, and granddaughter — discover
how to love despite their fears.


Detroit, Mich. (May 15, 2017) Wildemere Publishing is proud to announce “Wild Butterflies,” a novel by Katherine F. Green, is available in print at and on eBook on Nook, Kindle and iBooks.

For everyone raised by a grandparent or single parent… For every grandparent who has stepped in to take care of business… For every child — age 10 or 110 — yearning for understanding, “Wild Butterflies” explores the relationship of a mother, the son who means well, the granddaughter struggling with the anxieties of life, and the people who teach them what love really means.

Bill Angell works all day and good caregivers, if they exist, are difficult to find. Certainly, it’s best that his little girl lives with her grandmother, at least until he finds a good woman who understands he’s a good man.

Rita doesn’t have anything against her grandchild, though she’s messy and hasn’t been following directions the way she should. What she doesn’t understand is why the girl’s father doesn’t step in and take care of business. Why does life have to be so hard?

All Cory Angell knows is butterflies dance when she thinks about fitting in at school, the constant scolding she gets from the bitter old woman who doesn’t seem to want her living there, or why her mom and dad left her.

Raised in Detroit, Mich., Katherine F. Green was an elementary and high-school reading teacher, a reporter and copy editor at the Detroit Free Press, and a journalism instructor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and Wayne State University in Detroit before moving to New York City and then retiring to Beaufort County, S.C. Over the years, she has volunteered her time at nonprofits dedicated to improving the lives of children.
