Welcome to Bezelda.
Please fasten your seatbelt.

Do you feel light-headed?

Underground Daring.
Above-Ground Finesse.

Aren't you sick and tired of all that  boring, pre-packaged genre fiction that you find everywhere?  Of course you are.

Dip into the rather unusual material of this off-beat writer who hangs his hat on the shores of the Mississippi River and find yourself lost in literary worlds that can be one moment disturbing, the next moment psychedelic, and all the while leaving you somewhere in the middle of laughter, tears, and shaking your head in disbelief.

 Possibly the Hardest-Working Fiction Writer in Davenport, Iowa...

"If the rest of the world gets hip, they'll be using Tom's writing for 'How Best to Write Flash Fiction' classes.  He's in, quick, with memorable characters and remarkable scenes, out – just in time to satisfy and confuse at once. "

- Michele McDannold, formerly of Red Fez
