Welcome

Hi, I’m Charlotte Butterfield. Journalist, copywriter, stylist, author and lover of words based in Rome. I’ve created this site to showcase some of my work – from lighthearted parenting columns, to interiors shoots for design magazines and lifestyle features.

My debut novel, Me You & Tiramisu published by Harper Impulse came out at the end of February 2017. It’s been the result of a decade of procrastinating and a year of actually doing.  As a journalist, people assume that words are ever ready to fly out of my fingertips straight onto a keyboard, but as I very quickly realised, there’s a world of difference between writing what a magazine wants you to and creating characters and a plot people want to read about. It’s been an absolute joy to finish, and publish, and [deep breath] the second book will be out later in the year!
