DeFeo has studied railroads since growing up alongside the Northeast Corridor line in New Jersey. He is editor of and founder of The DeFeo Groupe. Today, he lives near the historic Western & Atlantic Railroad. He has written several railroad histories, including the first-ever complete histories of the Memphis, Clarksville & Louisville and the Indiana, Alabama & Texas railroads.

When people talk about Atlanta, the conversation often shifts to traffic and public transportation. Lost in the conversation about expanding transportation across the Metro Atlanta is the Atlanta Northern Railway, the former interurban line that connected Atlanta and Marietta between 1905 and 1947. DeFeo will highlight the line, the subject of his new book.
