NOW for something exceedingly different!

As promised, here is the third novel of the promised six. I am happy to have ART TOWN available through Amazon & Ingram. Definitely NOT a YA novel, this novel is brother to a mystery novel, sister to a tatterdemalion novel – yet not imposed louche. Above the fruited plain, across the amber fields of grain, there are ART TOWNS and peeps struggling to get by, in all of humanity’s grandeur & odium. What if an ART TOWN is celebrating BLOOMSDAY and things go horribly wrong? Remember Bloomsday?

‘Bloomsday is a commemoration and celebration of the life of Irish writer James Joyce, observed annually in Dublin and elsewhere on 16 June, the day his 1922 novel Ulysses takes place in 1904, the date of his first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle, and named after its protagonist Leopold Bloom.’ (

An Artist.

But back to ART TOWN!….

‘I wish it was filthier!’

– Richard Hedd

A couple days, a couple nights, in a mythical town in southeast Arizona on the border. What could go wrong? What could go right? Across the nation, in every small town, a pandemic of cruelty! In this very ADULT novel everybody in this small town is an artist. Everybody is a poet. Wait – wait, did the disappearing act on stage actually happen? Where did they go? They were on stage, including a dog  – HOCUS POCUS –  and they were gone! But magic is phony. Magic is dead at the end of the world. Unless some kind of sick and twisted magic hurtles on? Now the artists are the victims, the poets are the sleuths, and excess turns out to be a way after all–This is a filthy book. It is a stand alone book. Maybe a thriller, maybe a mystery, it’s the filthy book you’ve been waiting for!

Order your copies now! And maybe for a friend or enemy!
