Travis Besecker (1976 - present) is an award winning author and comedy writer. Using his chronic insomnia as an inspirational tool, he found early success in social media and print. Although he gained notoriety with his humor, he has confessed his preference for the dark nature of horror and suspense. In 2011 he broke the silence on his lifelong struggle with apeirophobia (fear of infinity) and began work on his first novel. Released in February of 2012, "Lost in Infinity" marked his debut into the world of psychological fiction. Although billed as a memoir, "Lost in Infinity" is a work of fiction told from the perspective of a self absorbed blogger as he comes to terms with his own psychosis and thoughts on the universe as a whole. "Lost in Infinity Deja Vu Redux" was released Halloween 2014. Travis is currently working on his follow up novel, "Harnessing the Spark". The horror fantasy set in the chaos of a zombie apocalypse is scheduled for release early 2015.
The author would have you believe this is a "psychological roller coaster wrapped in the factual memoir of a chronic insomniac suffering from apeirophobia (the fear of infinity)." He would go on to explain that the "novel unfolds the history of his life as he tries to unlock repressed memories through a near schizophrenic relationship with his own splintered subconscious." This is a clever ruse.
