From the Back Cover
The Coffin Maker's Son is a novel wirtten with a voice- no, an ear- to three verb tenses. Each chapter presents to varying degrees, and in each of these three tenses, a tale of a man's fate, the whisper of the supernatural, and the riddle of fathers. So, it is a novel of three losses then, and in three repetitions, each sent echoing through time from the begining of the novel through to its conclusion.
About the Author
Travis Moon began writing at nine, inspired by Jack London novels. To that end, he has pursued a writer's life. He has waited tables, bartended, put together circuit boards, sorted tax returns for the IRS, inspected stone fruit for the USDA, trained as a Nuclear Reactor Operator in the US Navy, worked as a telemarketer selling memberships to a political party, and participated in a variety of other occupations, both legitimate and illicit. This is the third novel he wrote after dropping out of college. He studied philosophy back then, until becoming convinced that he didn't need to finish his degree in order to write the next Great American Novel. He currently resides in the Sierra Nevada Foothills, in Sonora, a small town of California Gold Rush fame.
