Gene lives in Brooklyn, New York, where he works as a college professor teaching business courses, mentoring young people, and working on other literary works. Finding this story again by happenstance has really inspired him to share his love and passion for the transportation industry and for inspiring youth to make their dreams a reality. 

The Mystical Closet, written by Dr. Gene Haynes is the first book published and written by this author. This book was written years ago, while his mother was cleaning, she found his manuscript for the book. After reviewing the manuscript, he decided that this story deserved to be published. Dr. Haynes has always had a passion for the transportation industry after becoming a light rail operator himself. As a token of his appreciation for all the hardworking men and women in the industry and for those who desire to enter the industry, he published this book.

Student, WPK Campus

He has always seen himself as the artistic type but never knew how to express it in his own way, until now. Jose aspires to make amazing things that make people stop and stare for a while, and leave with what they just saw replaying in their minds. He wants to use his visions in a way that helps the world, show that there's still color to be found on a planet that's mostly seen as gray. Although he hasn't figured things out yet, he'll keep pushing himself to be the best he can be.
