Meet the Author: John Pritchard

John Pritchard brings back bawdy philosopher Junior Ray, along with his sidekick Voyd Mudd, in this third hilarious installment of the critically acclaimed “Junior Ray” series.

In Sailing to Alluvium, Pritchard continues the madcap adventures of the duo, who have become “diktectives” to stop the murderous activities of a semi-secret, lethal organization of Southern women, the AUNTY BELLES, headed by Miss Attica Rummage.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.


Barnes and Noble named John’s first book, Junior Ray, a Top Ten Sensational Debut Novel for 2005.

“Honed from the rough roads of dialect, the language within defines Pritchard as one of our great Southern writers.  The man has an ear for the voice of his people, and he's twisted their words into a tough, raunchy, comic roller-coasting romp, corkscrewing us down the byways of a Delta that is more than likely not traveled by the average tourist, but should be.“                  --Frank Bill, author of Crimes in Southern Indiana & Donnybrook
