Each chapter is the individual story of a passenger on the train, but the stories link together and show how even strangers on a train can touch one another. Hop aboard at www.TracksNovel.com.

His work has appeared in a number of publications,including The Baltimore Review, The Pedestal Magazine, WritersWeekly, The Potomac, Grub Street, Scribble Magazine, Potomac Review, The Arabesques Review, Four-Cornered Universe, JMWW, Barrelhouse, Slow Trains, and New Lines from the Old Line State: An Anthology of Maryland Writers.
