Travis Mulhauser

Travis Mulhauser is from Petoskey, Michigan. He is the author of two works of fiction, most recently the novel Sweetgirl from Ecco/Harper Collins. He lives in Durham, North Carolina with his wife and two children.

“Sweetgirl is a gritty, compelling novel of a world where even a sixteen-year-old must confront what Edith Wharton called ‘the hard considerations of the poor.’  Mullhauser depicts his people and their landscape with uncompromising fidelity.”— Ron Rash, Author of Serena and Above the Waterfall
