Travis Laurence Naught is an author who happens to be a quadriplegic wheelchair user with a tracheostomy. He was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy at age 16 months. Doctors performed a life extending spinal fusion surgery on Travis at age 7 and a lifesaving tracheostomy surgery at age 35. His poetry volume, The Virgin Journals (2012, ASD Publishing), and novel, Joyride (2016, Black Rose Writing), are widely available in paperback. Comic books, coffee, and collaborating with cool people give Travis life on a daily basis! Check out naughtapoet.blogspot.com for more of his writing and information.
