Author Biography

Zoom Into Books Author

While Enough is fiction, Tony Hylton has been around journalism for more than 76 of his 77 years. He was less than a month old when printers’ ink was applied to his feet and the images made on newsprint as his sportswriter father held him.

His connection with this honorable profession has taken many forms – Editor/publisher of the Hinton (WV) Daily News (now Hinton News); visiting professor of journalism at Susquehanna University; public relations practitioner for a national trade association in Washington, DC and a steel company in northern West Virginia; communication director for AARP Virginia and Public Information officer for a major U.S. Army headquarters in the Republic of Vietnam. Enough features the interaction of journalism and the brand of rough and tumble politics found in southern West Virginia in 1960.

Tony is a proud graduate of West Virginia University (Bachelor of Science of Journalism, 1965 and Masters of Arts, Political Science, 1972). He is the father of one son, Chad, and daughter, Lee Slivka, and grandfather to three accomplished granddaughters – Morgan and Reilly Hylton, and Maggie Slivka.

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

Enough by C.D. 'Tony' Hylton III is the story of Rick Hill as he battles small-town politics and learns that there is a lot more to small communities than meets the eye. Rick left his comfortable job at a reputable firm so that he could purchase a newspaper agency with his father in a small town. He was ready for an exhilarating experience but was not expecting an uphill battle. He had a lot of responsibilities by becoming the new publisher of the Lawnsville Crier; however, he was not looking forward to becoming entangled in the mess of Jordan County. He ruffled the feathers of the few bigwigs of the community and suddenly, his Lawnsville Crier is burnt to the ground. Will he take that as a warning to stop exposing the corruption in the small town? Or will he take that as the motivation to keep exposing these people until their community knows who they really are?

You can tell that C.D. 'Tony' Hylton III put a lot of thought into writing this story. The attention to detail is incredible, the imagery is amazingly vivid and the characters are given ample page space to grow. The author understands the ins and outs of local journalism, which was reflected in the story and the narrative itself. Rick is a man who is aware of the opportunities provided and he isn’t afraid of using them smartly. He is complex, he is not a perfect man, but he is dedicated, which is all it takes for him to capture the attention of readers. I was impressed with how the author clearly mentioned the impact local news sources have on a community. It just shows how much we rely on the news to form opinions about everyone else. Enough gives readers plenty to think about and I hope everyone takes a few hours out of their day to give it a go.
