Advance praise for When Pigs Fly

Here is what a couple of well-regarded published authors have to say about my upcoming novel:

Bob Sanchez’s When Pigs Fly reads like it was written with an ice pick, and he drives it right into the heart of the American dream of the Golden Years. A big pay-out lottery ticket, a 300-pound bad guy named Diet Cola, an Elvis Impersonator, and a javelina that flies? No one looking for a smooth Southwestern retirement should have to face what Mack Durgin faces. Part road trip, part crime caper, part love story, this is one cool debut. If you like the dark comedy of Hiaasen and Leonard, you’re going to love this one.

David Daniel, award-winning author of The Marble Kite and Reunion

When Pigs Fly is a masterpiece of comic writing combined with a touching story. Quirky doesn’t begin to describe the characters—they’re sometimes terrifying, often hilarious, and always unique. Robert Sanchez has the perfect touch for comedy, delivering a riotous good time while giving us a well-developed protagonist we’ll want to follow for many books to come.

Kathryn Mackel, author of The Hidden

Great praise. It's the toughest thing in the world to make people laugh, and you're doing that. Great! In this polluted, overpopulated, terror-ridden world, we need more writers with your approach. Best wishes all the way!
