Read full description of the books:
Abused at home and bullied at school, young Jayrod Nash steals away on a freight train with a vow never to return. His best friend tags along, but his heart’s not in it. They meet up with a hobo named Farley, who offers protection in exchange for obedience, and soon learn he’s running too.
“The Night Train” is a novel about the struggle of innocence against brutality, written with powerful characters who allow no commentary from the author. Together they paint a picture of life as it exists too often.
Carl Purdon weaves a tale that takes the reader through the full gamut of emotions, and leaves them feeling as if they have known the Nash family all their lives. Perhaps they have.

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.
