A Bad Guy
by John Charlton

A Bad Guy begins at 1972 with a street fight in the gritty north end of Regina. Half a lifetime later leads to the ball diamonds and hockey rinks of Calgary Alberta.

Through it all, this story is about male influences – good and bad.

“I prayed every night for ages. It’s no miracle I was after. I just wanted to get home-free once in a blue moon. God did a better job making me pay for my sins than answering my prayers. All I ever did was get in God’s way.”

“A Bad Guy gives me much of what I crave in literature.”

Michael Hetherton, Author of Grasslands

John Charlton and his wife Sharon enjoy retirement in their home town of Regina.

A Bad Guy is John’s first novel.
