Ian Butt is a full time wannabe writer and pet shop manager who resides in the downtown Toronto area. Like many wannabe writers he sleeps on a pile of his own unsold screenplays, is vaguely familiar with the concept of money, but has only experienced it second hand through the descriptions of others, and gets deeply uncomfortable anytime he finds himself in a good mood. His first novel,a sci-fi, horror, rom-com titled, A Man and His Vagina is now available to read for free on wattpad.com. He is currently writing two more novels, including a sequel to A Man and His Vagina. His biggest ambition is to one day either become a real life Kilgore Trout, or write something that wouldn’t gross out his mom, whichever comes first. If they ever make a sitcom based on Ian Butt’s life it should be called Butt Knows Best and star Kevin Hart as Ian Butt, a single father/ working Joe trying to raise his eight children with hilariously inept results.
