William was born in Morehead City, NC. He moved around a lot as a child living in various places such as NY, GA, FL, VA, until his family settled back in NC, where he lives now. He runs the blog Bang Noir and writes articles for examnier.com.
His debut novel, Bang, a noir crime suspense novel, was published in December 2010. His second novel The House of Balestrom, a gothic suspense drama, was released on August 2011. He is currently working on his third novel, Time of The Season, and the sequel to BANG.
William Butler's inspirations are authors such as Chuck Palahniuk, Anne Rice, J. T. Leroy, Jacqueline Susann, Anias Nin and Tennesse Williams. He tends to write about characters who are not entirely friendly. It's not all rainbows and butterflies for his novels or short stories.
But Noir is a part of what he writes. It was quoted that "William Butler is an expert in the creation of self-destructive characters whose actions take them to disastrous ends." -C.C.Cole (Gastar Series, Author)
