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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
