Neil is currently at work on his next novel, Unraveling the Coil based the science and philosophy of Nikola Tesla.
Neil Newton was born and raised in New York City and grew 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.
After trying to live the professional life in New York he moved to a small but civilized city in Tennessee. There he was surprised even further to find a wonderful wife and a welcoming adopted family. He lives there with an endless supply of rescued cats and dogs.
