Book Nook: Nowhere Nice, by Rick Gavin


"Nowhere Nice" is the third book in a series set in the Mississippi Delta. Nick Reid and his buddy Desmond are repo men. They spend their time tracking down customers who have fallen behind on their installment plans. Nick and Desmond repossess TV's and other items from people who don't often feel inclined to part with these luxuries.

These situations provide some excellent opportunities for humorous and sometimes violent confrontations. Rick Gavin is a pseudonym employed for this series by the writer T.R. Pearson. In this interview you'll discover why Pearson chose to write these hilarious books under a different name.  Pearson has been writing professionally for decades. He also offers up some of his views on how the book publishing industry has changed over the years.
