Bubba Goes for Broke, my comedy and crime caper first published in 2011, has now been reissued under my name. It originally came out under the pen name David Bawdy because it was being released at the same time as my first young adult title, Cracking the Ice. My editor felt strongly that I needed a pen name to avoid confusion between the R-rated Bubba title and Cracking.
But enough time has passed and I’ve written additional Young Adult books as well as those not appropriate for the YA audience and people seem to have figured it all out. If there’s a teenager in sports gear, it’s YA; if there’s a bare-chested hunk on the cover, it’s a romance.
And then there’s Bubba and Tiffany. You may know Tiffany as the star in my quirky short story, “Tiffany Gets her Boobs.”
“‘Tiffany’ works beautifully, and by the end of the story, I had fallen in love with this savvy, determined, and somewhat crazy woman. Everyone who has read this story remembers it and likes it. You will too.”
–USA Today Bestselling Author Kristine Kathyrn Rusch
Well, here come Bubba and Tiffany, the oddest of odd couples.
If a dim-witted, sex-crazed crook falls in love, does he get any dumber? You can bet a boob-jobbed Hooters waitress he does. And when she wants to become a televangelist with a little something extra, guess who’s going to pay? Meet Bubba Winslow.
