I'm currently at work polishing Tracks, a novel in stories. Tracks takes place on a train traveling from Baltimore to Chicago. Each story is told from the perspective of a passenger on the train.

While the stories stand alone, they become stronger when linked together. A secondary character in one story becomes the main character in another. My intent is to look at the decisions each character faces and how those decisions, as well as each character's interactions with the other passengers, alter the path ahead and cast past experiences and choices in a new light.

While entirely unique, Tracks is similar in nature to Joan Silber's National Book Award-nominated Ideas of Heaven: a ring of stories.

I've garnered promising feedback from a professional workshop and alpha readers. I expect to have Tracks to ready to submit to literary agents and publishers in fall of 2006.

Thank you for your interest! And please come back for more news along the tracks.
