Randal Eldon Greene is an author and interviewer. His first book, Descriptions of Heaven, a novella, was published by Harvard Square Editions in 2016.
A native of the northern plains, Randal grew up in small-town Nebraska and later attended the University of South Dakota where he earned his Bachelor’s in English and Anthropology. His first four short stories were all published in 2010. His fiction and other writing has since appeared in various publications.
Randal and his wife, Libby, became parents in winter of 2021 to a daughter. As a stay-at-home dad, Greene now snatches moments of undistracted time to write and read when he’s not attending to his bundle of cute and poop.
Randal believes the world of Literary Arts is an active and thriving place, and he is always getting his hands in the ink. He is the founder of the Hello, Author newsletter in which he holds interviews and conversations with today’s writers. Greene is also the administrator of Literary Fiction Writers, Facebook’s largest group devoted to writers of Lit Fic. Locally, Greene co-founded and run the Tri-State Writers Group in conjunction with the South Sioux City Public Library in Nebraska.
In the past, Randal worked as a prose submissions reader for South Dakota Review and Heart & Mind Zine. In 2005 he engineered and produced Microwave Souls, an album of spoken-word poetry, distributed by the Vermillion Literary Project. He also co-founded the Vermillion Writers’ Guild and served as its president for two years. He’s a member of Sigma Tau Delta—the national English Honors Society. He wrote a children’s readers’ theater play, Humpty Dumpty Goes to the Beach, which was performed in 2015 and 2016 by Libby’s ESL summer school class for their Books on the Beach celebration.
Randal’s current work-in-progress is a novel about a death metal rock band. He also has a collection of fictional dialogues that he hopes to find time to continue editing this year. Stories for two other planned collections continue to be published, as well as other one-off writings.
