Praise

“Hunter’s writing is fluid and fast, and the dialogue is often raw and gritty yet comical.”
—Black Issues Book Review

“DRAMATIC AND GRITTY . . . Travis Hunter raises the bar . . . with the racy Trouble Man. . . . Expansive in its exploration of male accountability, Trouble Man not only shows the consequences of irresponsible behavior, but also allows for redemption and empathy.”
Upscale magazine

“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED—AND Y’ALL KNOW I DON’T RECOMMEND MUCH!”
—ERIC JEROME DICKEY
Author of The Other Woman

“A VERY EMOTIONAL STORY about a man making choices about being a man for his self-esteem and for the respect of his family.”
Booklist

“Once again, Travis Hunter gives us unforgettable characters that move and touch us in a way very few authors have done. Trouble Man is full of surprises, and it shows that, with patience, love, and a willingness to look deep within our souls, we all have the capacity to grow and change for the better. This is fabulous work from a writer who has proven once again that he’s here to stay.”
—MARY J. JONES,
PageTurner.net

Author Q&A

Book club favorite, Travis Hunter, author of the upcoming novel, A One Woman Man on book clubs and his new book.

Why are book clubs important?
Meeting with book clubs is one of the few chances I get to meet the readers who support my work and hear what they think — the good and the bad — which makes for a better book the next time.

I’ve met with book clubs in person and over the phone. They’ve reached out to me via email, my website, or word of mouth and if my family schedule (I’m a single dad), writing and promotional schedule permits, I’ll do the book club chat.

Does anything in particular stick out to you about the book club meetings you’ve done over the years?
A 65 year-old man in a men’s book club told me that my novel, The Hearts of Men, made him want to be a better man. At another a woman told me that Trouble Man was the first book her son read on his own. It really touched my heart to hear these things and let me know that I was enlightening people as well as entertaining them with my works.

Tell us about your new novel.
I’ve never had as much fun writing a book as I did this one. A One Woman Man is primarily about a man who loses the love of his life and thinks he’ll never find another woman like her. He’s raising their child alone, but he lets down his guard and messes with the wrong woman. That decision could cost him everything — his family, his reputation, and his freedom. But that’s just part of the story, and you’ll have to pick it up to find out the rest!
