Author Spotlight: Kevin Travis

So it's Wednesday and that means I'm spotlighting another fellow author. This week it's the lovely Kevin Travis. Let's find out a bit more about him and his writing. ______________________________________________________________________
Dylan Bell, a freshman in high school, grew up idolizing his father, who played ten years of Major League Baseball. When his father passed away because of cancer, Dylan was heartbroken. But thanks to a loving family, a supportive girlfriend, a close bond with teammates, a crazy puppy, and a strong faith, Dylan grows as a baseball player and as a young man. With a little bit of help, and a lot of faith, Dylan just may be able to lead the Hudson Redmen to a place they have never been before in school history.
Kevin Travis has been an award-winning journalist for over twenty years, mainly as a sports writer/editor. He lives in St. Louis with his beautiful wife and best friend, Allison, step-daughter, Katherine, and two dogs, Thor and Tasha.

Born in Ohio, where he graduated from Hudson High School and then Bowling Green State University, Travis moved to North Carolina in 2000. He enjoyed the beaches and the warm weather, often swearing that he would never again move to the Midwest or a cold climate.

But, love prevails. When his wife accepted a new job in Missouri, he quickly followed.

His hyperactive dog, Thor, a Golden Retriever, provided him plenty of material, and headaches, for his first book, Home Run from Heaven.

Both Thor and Tasha played parts in his second book, Skyler's Magical Christmas.

Home Run From Heaven and Skyler's Magical Christmas are available to purchase on Amazon.
