About this author

Travis McClain hasn’t yet realized his dream of being elected president, so he takes comfort in having written his first novel. Now he hopes to sell the movie rights and make a zillion dollars, so be sure to recommend this novel to all your family, friends, coworkers, classmates, acquaintances, librarians, nurse practitioners, teachers and anyone willing to part with their cash.


I haven't written anything in this sub-series in quite awhile, and with summer waning it seemed prudent that I get to this duo quickly. I enjoy traveling. I don't think I've ever gone somewhere that I outright disliked. I've been to plenty of places I'd like to visit again sometime. But I know this much: I will only ever feel at home in a place where summer is marked by honeysuckle and lightnin... Read more of this blog post »

Description: Unlike the confession of a fraud, this is unmistakably a work of fiction. There are only two characters, the narrator and an older man with whom the narrator smokes a cigar. Anyone familiar with my writing style will notice immediately how little description I have provided; and yet, I hope I have succeeded in creating the atmosphere of the story sufficient to allow your own imagination to do the rest. I edited this one while writing it, and again while typing it. Originally, the narrator was on vacation, traveling with a young woman but I excised that because I didn't feel it really added anything. I don't know if this might be the introduction to a larger story or not, though I suppose it could be.
