About Neil Douglas Newton
Neil Douglas Newton was born and raised in New York City, growing up in Bayside, a small community in Queens. He began writing as a child, creating vivid characters to entertain friends and family.
Neil is also a musician who can often be seen indulging his interest in the arcane art of finger picking guitar. He has written several songs which he has performed at local venues.
The Railroad is Neil's first novel. Like its main character Neil spent a life changing half hour in the subway on 9/11 as the Twin Towers went down. He wears a vintage subway token on a chain to remind him of what happened to him, his city, and his country.
He currently lives in Knoxville, TN with his wife, writer Elizabeth Horton-Newton, and an assortment of rescued dogs and cats. Parent to four and grandparent to five, he and his wife enjoy traveling worldwide.
Neil is presently working on his next novel, Unraveling the Coil based on the science and philosophy of Nikola Tesla.

To retain a distinctive international flavor (or ‘flavour’) each story is in the English style of its author, so some stories are in British English, some in American, and some reflect the jargon of a region.
P.S. 'Twisted Tales' is mixed-fruit jam for the soul. Laugh, cry, dwell deep and sigh. Enjoy!
