All right last but by no means least our fourth Street Lit King, and male author of colour this week is Travis Yancey! Look at this beautiful picture of him and his daughter. I crossed paths with this author a while back, I have downloaded his book I did start to read the first chapter and was drawn in. Travis from what I know of is someone who is very real, judging by his Facebook posts he really does say it how it is! Get to know him. His debut novel crosses genres urban/street lit into the crime thriller and suspense genre, with mafia involvement across the Atlantic!
I would recommend that anyone who enjoys suspense, thrill and futuristic vibes in their reading to check him out. So far he has published just this one book I’m aware of, but I am sure there will be more in the pipeline. His book has a wonderful review on and I’m sure he would welcome more readers and reviews!

Age- thirty five, and he can’t swim. ( please keep a straight face lol)

Hobbies- chess-he’s been playing since 8th grade. He’s a barber and has been since the age of eleven. Writing is a true passion, he discovered writing from spending time alone, and wanting to express himself and his imagination, without people looking at him ‘weirdly’. He grow up in public housing, sadly his mother was a drug addict while he was young, he also didn’t have his father around. While this is sad, in his own words ‘these streets made me.’
Current Work In Progress In Travis’ Own Words:
I love writing books that mix the urban culture with a mainstream suspense feel. Some of my books have a futuristic approach also, using a “modern society” such as my up and coming book called “Galaxy Goonz.” Where two African American brothers came up in the year 2999 selling lazers and what’s called “Phlang”( modern day heroin). The two brothers became crypto billionaires. As it is told one of the brothers commits murder when he walks in on his wife, having a affair in their mansion. He’s sentenced to 100 years ON THE SUN…it is up to his twin brother to help break him free, before he is sentenced! The brothers go from planet to planet, creating chaos in the Galaxy as the brothers strive to stay free and alive while on the run!
