Randle is the author of dozens of books about the military drawing on his own experiences as a soldier in a combat environment. He has also written nonfiction books about UFOs as well as science fiction. He, along with Robert Charles Cornett, might have been the first civilians to have access to the entire Project Blue Book files after they were declassified in 1976. His interest in UFOs began as a teenager when he investigated a sighting while living in
Colorado. His big question then was if the object had been sharply defined or had a been a ball of light. From that point on he has investigated hundreds of sightings around the country including nearly three decades researching the events in Roswell. He now hosts a weekly radio show, A Different Perspective on the X-Zone Broadcast Network. Among his latest books are Roswell in the 21 st Century, Encounter in the Desert about the Socorro landing and the recently
updated Case MJ-12. His blog can by found at www.kevinrandle.blogspot.com.
