Jane Paffenbarger Butler
Jane Paffenbarger Butler has degrees in Pharmacy and Health Systems Management, and worked in clinical research for ten years before leaving full-time work to become a stay-at-home mom. But her years of weekly and biweekly psychotherapy sessions in the late ‘80s are her true credential. This is where she learned to leave the past behind and forge a new future, daring herself to share the facts of her life despite growing up in isolation amid a culture of secrets.
In 2017, an excerpt from her memoir You’ll Get Over It, Jane Ellen, won for nonfiction at the Philadelphia Writers Conference. Jane is a two-time winner of the West Chester Story Slam and is featured in the September 2019 Healthy Connections blog in Psychology Today. The manuscript of her memoir has received serious reviews by Simon and Schuster and St. Martin’s Press.
She is a high school writing coach, is on the board of the Brandywine Valley Writers Group and is also a member of the Main Line Writers Group.
