Long prose


Pinning the Butterfly is a contemporary literary novel encompassing themes of friendship and co-dependency, obsession, prejudice and betrayal. Sara Spagnola and Rhiannon Hughes have been best friends for thirty years. Rhiannon is a beautiful and highly-driven sculptor, creator of flawless modern masterpieces. Her world (not to mention her reputation) is shattered when, seemingly out of nowhere, Sara publicly accuses her of a personal philosophy that verges on the eugenic.

Nate Turner is a man pushing on through life, despite considerable personal difficulty. He becomes the unwitting focus of Rhiannon’s quest to confound Sara’s accusations and restore her own reputation.

Rhiannon promises Nate immortality in bronze. What she delivers is obliteration and humiliation..
