Reviews Reptile Wines

Reptile Wines Novel John Hewitt author

“Reptile Wines might best be described as ‘Carl Hiaasen meets Sideways, with pinches of Falcon Crest and The Godfather tossed in for spice.’ Like Hiaasen, his Florida alter ego, Hewitt dances all along the fine line separating reality from total absurdity—and makes it work.”
—Darrell Laurant, author of The Kudzu Kid

“In his zany novel, Hewitt has created a hapless yet lovable loser protagonist in Miles, who despite his unfortunate life choices seems to be the sanest person in Napa—though that’s not saying much. Hewitt’s prose, littered with deliciously bizarre dialogue and other vivid details, makes his larger-than-life world feel fit for the big screen.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Another Hewitt romp—fast-paced and funny!”
Laurie McAndish King, author of Lost, Kidnapped and Eaten Alive!

Reviews – One Shoe, When a Gold Rush is Not Enough

oneshoe-3d-cover

“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.”

 Reviews – Drone Baloney

DroneBaloneyCover-3D-webfeature1

“A bizarre and funny journey into two worlds, each a comic mystery hidden behind a mirage. I enjoyed the read to the max! ”

Drone Baloney is a summer read trifecta—weird situations in Baja heat, torn from real-world headlines, and slicing humor—a fierce, funny and sharply pointed story.”
