Reptile Wines Novel John Hewitt author A snaky vinter, horse racing, relationship revenge and interstellar aliens—REPTILE WINES is a rare-vintage farce.

“Hewitt’s prose, littered with deliciously bizarre dialogue and other vivid details, makes his larger-than-life world feel fit for the big screen…an outrageously weird yet delightfully charming wine-country tale.” —Kirkus Reviews

ONE SHOE, When a Gold Rush is not Enough!

“Take a little northern California history, add a touch of Christopher Moore and a large dash of Elmore Leonard, and you‘ll get something like One Shoe, a comedic look at criminals, the media and the world of gold prospecting…frantic and fun, mixing criminals, small town eccentrics and greed.” —Foreword Book Review
