Meet the Authors
From a child’s-eye view, Travis Dandro recounts growing up with a drug-addicted birth father, alcoholic step-dad, and overwhelmed mother. As a kid, Dandro would temper the tension of his every day with flights of fancy, finding refuge in toys and animals and insects rather than the unpredictable adults around him. Spanning from Travis's early childhood through his teen years, in King of King Court, Dandro perceptively details the effects of poverty and addiction on a family while maintaining a child’s innocence for as long as he can.
