Don Travis

Don Travis is a man totally captivated by his adopted state of New Mexico. Each of his seven B. J. Vinson mystery novels features some region of the state as prominently as it does his protagonist, a gay. former Marine ex-cop turned confidential investigator. Don never made it to the Marines (three years in the Army was all he managed) and certainly didn’t join the Albuquerque Police Department. He thought he was a paint artist for a while, but ditched that for writing a few years back. A loner, he fulfills his social needs by attending SouthWest Writers meetings and teaching Wordwrights, a weekly writing class at the North Domingo Baca Multigenerational Center in Albuquerque.
