Read full description of the books:
Jayrod Nash is not your typical fourth grade boy. The abuse he suffers at the hands of his father is brutal, and he doesn't find much comfort in his mother. At school, his shyness makes him a prime target for the class bully, but Jayrod is getting tired of being everybody's punching bag. Arnold Wise is Jayrod's best friend, and he's starting to realize that something in the Nash household is terribly wrong. Twice a day, a train rumbles through the woods behind Jayrod's rural Mississippi home. The day train fills his head with dreams of adventure, but at night his thoughts turn to escape. Escape from a life of pain and neglect. With Arnold's help, he stops the train and sneaks aboard, and soon learns that problems can't be solved by running away.

Read information about the authorCarl was born in 1964 in Pontotoc, Mississippi. One of his first memories has him standing in his front yard wishing he was old enough to go to school so he could learn to read and write. Especially write, because he had stories swirling inside his head and he didn't want to forget them. His next memory is of his first day at school, wondering what he had wished himself into, and how he could get back out of it. On that first day of first grade, he was kept in at recess because he was the only kid in his class who couldn't recite his ABCs. An ironic start for a boy who would grow up to write novels.
When he was 28, Carl rode his motorcycle north from Mississippi and toured the back roads of Ohio. Later he rode through the Smokey Mountains and up the Blue Ridge Parkway into Virginia. Riding relaxed him, and allowed his mind to wander back toward the novels he knew he would someday write. Someday came about a decade later, when he stopped making excuses and began the difficult task of turning a dream into reality.
Carl still lives in Pontotoc with his wife, Sharon, and two of their four children. At present he and Sharon have three grandsons and two granddaughters who keep them busy. Carl has written five novels and is always working on something new.
