About the Author

Once homeless, but now residing in Shelby, North Carolina, Randy Clyde Hoyle may be described by some as the ultimate melting-pot American. His ancestors were Africans, Irish, Cherokee, Scottish, Dutch, and German. Randy, however, says, "I prefer my writing to denote who or what I am."

Mr. Hoyle worked briefly for the Cleveland Times. He co-founded the Writers’ & Poets’ Freedom of Speech Festival, which he’s produced the festival since 1995.

In 2000, he won a Nashville Newsletter Award for his poem, "LONG HARD RAIN." In 2003, he won a Northern Star Award for literature.

He likes to hear from his readers. Contact him at

Format: Paperback
If you had the ability to go back and change the past to ensure a future where all beings were equal and no one was oppressed, would you do it?

This book speaks in science fiction format of the truths of our awakening in these times and how it related specifically to Dred Scott and Abraham Lincoln. The intricate workings of time and space with the intent of universal equality weave a thread through this monumental time to ensure that slavery is ended at last.

Randy, a great writer and poet, is eloquent in his telling of this tale, touching all of our hearts with the message that we can be the change that we want to see, we can work for our dreams and make them come true.
