He is the author of the warmhearted contemporary classic, The Christmas Train; the critically acclaimed Wish You Well, which is currently taught in schools across the country and has been adopted for use by city, state and national reading programs; and numerous # 1 bestselling suspense novels, including Absolute Power.
