Thanks for stopping by my site. I'm currently working on my fourth novel, which doesn't have a name at the moment. After writing a middle grade story as well as a young adult, I'm getting back to what I enjoy most—dark fantasy with a literary flare. I hope to be finished within the next two months, and then it's time for submissions. Despite the temptation, I won't self-publish anything.

One thing I've learned about the publishing business is that it's certainly stronger than most people think. If you feel like self-publishing because you want to be in control of everything, good for you. But if you decide to self-publish because you've been told that getting an agent and having a book traditionally published is impossible, you're listening to the wrong people. Keep writing and you'll eventually make it!

But within minutes of his arrival, Ethan is involved in a violent accident. He comes to in a hospital, with no ID, no cell phone, and no briefcase.

    The War of Art has inspired people around the world to defeat "Resistance"; to recognize and knock down dream-blocking barriers and to silence the naysayers within us. Resistance kicks everyone's butt, and the desire to defeat it is equally as universal. The War of Art identifies the enemy that every one of us must face, outlines a battle plan to conquer this internal foe, then pinpoints just how to achieve the greatest success

    Tenley "Ten" Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she'll live—after she dies. There is an eternal truth most of the world has come to accept: Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal, and real life begins after death.


After working in the education field for over ten years, Travis turned his attention to writing, completing his first novel and helping others market their books as well. He launched a media business that has assisted both independent and New York Times bestselling authors with branding their work. He provides content and layout support for the agency newsletter, designs both advertorials and book covers, and aids in the management of the agency’s social media venues.

As an associate agent, he is seeking young adult, middle grade, mysteries, thrillers, commercial fiction, and romance.
