Bill Hoyt holds an MA in history from Pittsburg State University, where he works as a database analyst.
In 2012, Hoyt won the PSU Graduate Research Colloquium for his decipherment of John Brown Junior's encrypted Civil War correspondence. He has been a featured speaker on the Bleeding Kansas Lecture Series and has addressed the Kansas Association of Historians. His graduate thesis, Good Hater: George Henry Hoyt's War on Slavery, was a PSU Distinguished Thesis finalist and a Topeka History Geeks book-of-the-month selection.
While his first love will always be History, he is currently cheating on her with Fantasy.
