about me

My first job titles were Chicken Catcher and Corn Detasseler. I lived a somewhat normal small town life in Nebraska until I dropped out of dental school to become a stand-up comedian and founding member of The Groundlings improvisational comedy troupe in Los Angeles.

As a voice actor I've been heard in hundreds of commercials, a few TV shows, and a movie. I also wrote some TV shows for Hanna Barbera Studios. And it is my dubious claim to fame that I set a record for the most winning acts on The Gong Show (three). But then, I also hold the record for the most gonged acts (three). I'm living proof that in life, you win some and you lose some.

After taking a long break from show-biz pursuits to raise a family and make a living in sales, I have picked up the pen again, writing my first novel: The Legend of Butterfield Farm

The Legend of Butterfield Farm....

D.D. Larsen

What happens when climbing a tree takes you to a strange new world from which you may never return? The Legend of Butterfield Farm begins.

A mysterious, giant oak tree turns up on Butterfield Farm. Seven-year-old Henna discovers its magical nature and its odd occupants upon moving there. She, her twelve-year-old sister, Holly, and their eight-year-old cousin, Gordon, are carried away in this unusual tree to a far away, wondrous world. Once there, they must survive a terrifying journey filled with peculiar creatures and fiendish enemies for a chance at returning home.

Hi, Debra. Thanks for taking the time to read some of The Legend of Butterfield Farm. I'm so glad you liked what you've read so far. I know what you mean by my not telling the story from one POV, or limiting one POV per chapter, but I wrote the book jumping around between the three cousins' POV's ... view book

Hello, D.S.. I love how you've introduced Jessup and his "problem" with deciding between living with Mom or Dad. I really felt for the character and his situation. Good job hooking the reader into caring about your hero. Also liked that Jessup is a bit flawed, which makes him very believable. ... view book
