Caught in a time warp, Lil Man and Skeets get an unforgettable lesson as they speed down the tracks on a Ghost Train. Listening to a blow by blow description of the infamous battle between the mighty John Henry, a steel driving man, and the railroad's automatic steam hammer, is a broadcast they will never forget. But even on this seemingly harmless train ride, danger waits just down the tracks.
As a teenager, A Hansley Jr.'s poetry was discovered and encouraged by an old time hustler in Newark N.J. Since that day he has been a writer consumed with his craft. After graduating high school, he was offered a Speech and Theater grant to UMBC but travel called. He went on to appear in the Toronto production of the Broadway musical, 'The Me Nobody Knows, ' the French production of the musical, 'Double V, ' and in multiple productions of the legendary musical, 'HAIR, ' around the world. During this time there was one constant; he never stopped writing, even as he was entreated in London by a noted producer, John Worth, to form the R&B group, The Majestics. The long hours spent traveling only provided more opportunity to write. Three years later, it was time to go home and put the work to use. Notwithstanding the trials and tribulations that are inherent in the business, Aloysius was able to bring one of his works to the stage. His musical, 'The Gramaphone Rag, ' was performed at Laney College in Oakland, later to move to The On Broadway Theater in San Francisco. He now lives in Northern California.
