Teller of Tall Tales & Short Truths

Randy Rayfield has been telling stories all his life even after being told not to by his momma. He was born in North Carolina and raised on a farm in lower Union County, NC with a South Carolina address.  When he retired a few years back, he decided to start doing things he really enjoyed such as storytelling and napping in a hammock. 

As a storyteller, writer and catfish cook, Randy’s stories are a mixture of personal experiences and recollections.  From his observations of everyday things he blends together humor and slight exaggerations with exiguous use of the truth.  His stories are insightful, unique and sometimes just plain absurd, but always entertaining.
