A deft Black Comedy-YA hybrid

Tinsel & Tine

Here’s where you’ll find the latest news, reviews, and other miscellany about my True Crime-inspired YA novella UGLYVILLE: THE DIARY OF VERONA CASSIDY.

Meet Verona Cassidy.

Dysfunctional. Delusional. Disturbed.

When the 15-year-old misfit sees the strikingly handsome garbageman outside her bedroom window, it’s love at first sight. But love doesn’t always look back the same way.

That won’t stop Verona from winning his heart… at any cost.

Sometimes people get used. Sometimes people get hurt. Sometimes people die.

UGLYVILLE is a story of dark deeds and pathological passion, about how far this fille fatale will go to have her Hollywood ending.

Praise for UGLYVILLE

Uglyville is a fascinating true crime-inspired novella and a quick read for the morbidly curious.” –Online Book Club

“Riveting… brisk and fast-paced” –Serious Reading

“Unconventional in the best of ways. I found myself surprised, disturbed, and turning pages. Like noir? Searching for something out of the ordinary and new? Search no more. Sawney Hatton delivers.” –Daniel Braum, Author of The Night Marchers and Other Strange Tales

“The book is both black comedy and melodrama and really f**kin tasteless. Love it! Love it!” –Jaidee, book reviewer

“This is not your sister’s YA” –Don Corcoran, Author of A Road Paved in Iron
