Portland, Maine author J R Canfield pens his autobiography and tribute to his railroad career.

PROSPECT, Conn. - s4story -- There comes a time when most still-literate octogenarians feel the desire to amuse, educate or perhaps bore their descendants and neighbors with the many lessons of experience they have personally suffered.  Fortunately or sadly – depending on the reader's level of tolerance – this author is no exception. Thus we have Life's Lessons Learned, the tale of an unrepentant railroad enthusiast and amateur psychologist's adventures with family, acquaintances and colleagues whose names have been altered in many instances to protect the guilty and the outrageous.

J R Canfield was born and raised in northern New Jersey and graduated from the Bloomfield, N.J. High School. His interest in fiction writing was awakened when he won a nationwide short story contest for ninth graders. (Actually he came in second but the original winner was disqualified.) After graduating from NYU, Canfield spent his working career in railroad operations serving as Trainmaster for his beloved DL&W R.R. (RIP Oct. 17, 1960), Superintendent, General Superintendent and Director of Operations for several rail carriers. Since retirement, Canfield has authored seven books of rail photography for Morning Sun Books, Inc.

Here are recent mystery books by J R Canfield . . .

The Vigilantes : How to Solve a Perfect Murder
The last thing expected of a wealthy, long established and self satisfied neighborhood such as Reservoir View is a brutal and most probably premeditated murder. Even more devastating is the fact that a number of "insiders" as well as a few "outsiders" had potential motives for orchestrating such a crime! When the local authorities are unable to identify the perpetrator or perpetrators its up to a few engaged insiders to find the killer using admittedly unorthodox methodology, methodology most certainly unavailable to the police. The Vigilantes : How to Solve a Perfect Murder is an entertaining book that will hold the attention of any mystery lover.

The Triangle - Rough Justice - Windbrooke's War
The three separate mysteries contained herein share only a single characteristic. This tenuous connection relates to the variety of corporate activity represented including the hospitality industry, railroad industry, and the property development industry.
