Truck Driver

In his new book, “The Truck Stop,” Foristell author Richard Seveska shares personal tales of truck drivers to help readers see life in a different perspective.

The world of the truck driver is a complete mystery for most people, but the reality is that they are people just like everyone else. By reading Seveska’s “The Truck Stop,” which contains short stories that lead to a greater understanding of just who is behind the wheel of those huge vehicles, readers will learn about the difficult and lonely life these truck drivers lead.

Short vignettes based upon actual encounters are presented to the reader to illustrate the common thread of hope that runs through them and brings people deeper into their faith.

In 12 years as a “truck stop chaplain,” Seveska has heard just about every kind of story from the drivers he’s met — family, love, drama, tragedy, legal battles, crime, intrigue, horrific accidents and faith. The stories presented in “The Truck Stop” are personal life journeys intended to help readers see themselves through the lives of others.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or

Seveska ran a successful training company for 21 years working with Fortune 500 companies, developing training programs for their workers. He has been an ordained Catholic deacon for 25 years and has been involved in the Truck Stop Ministry as a chaplain for 13 years, most of which was at a truck stop northwest of Chicago.
