With your help, I'm going to reach my goal of $3,000 to cover the costs of printing the hardcover and paperback copies of THE REMAINING TROUBLE as well as producing the special rewards for backers.

"SERIOUSLY, [YOU'RE A] DARK DR. SEUSS"—A reader

Reeling from a devastating breakup, my imagination and heartache wrote these poems as an attempt to understand and cope with pain, loss of love, navigating life, and arriving to the self. THE REMAINING TROUBLE AND OTHER BATTLES features a collection of 27 stream-of-consciousness poems inspired by pop culture, music, contemporary poets and authors, like Robert Hass, Louise Glück, Langston Hughes, John Hollander, Franz Kafka, Virginia Woolf, and others. Seamonsters do make an appearance.

THEY CALL ME CLEVER, BUT MY NAME IS TREAVOR

Howdy, I'm Treavor “Sounds Like Trevor" Wagoner. I have a BA in Creative Writing from the University of North Texas. I design human experiences for apps and websites, and with your help, I’m going to do that with books. I’m also a musician and explorer.

As a writer and editor, I’ve been featured as a contributor of poetry in the North Texas Review and as a correspondent for Pegasus News and the Waco Tribune-Herald.

As an explorer, I’ve visited all 50 states (and Washington, D.C.) of the United States of America, 3 continents, and 7 countries so far. I’ve lived in Dallas, Austin, Seattle; I frequent San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, and Miami.

Having done all of these things, I have plenty of exciting stories to tell. The Remaining Trouble and Other Battles is really just the beginning of my journey as a writer.
