Hi! I’m Randy D. Pearson. Thanks for visiting my website! (Contact info below)
My creativity and love for the written word came about at a very early age. As a child, I wrote my own comic strip series called The Weirdos, starring Hic and Bunyan. Recently, I came across the first story I ever wrote, a cartoon book entitled, The Adventures of Marvin and Randy, that I concocted at age nine as a birthday gift for my father. From there, I began writing creative fiction and the occasional essay on my Atari 800 home computer.
Over many years of writing fiction, I won several national writing contests, and received honorable mention in an international contest in 2005. I also received honorable mention in 1986 for a novella I “published” on my computer bulletin board system (BBS, the precursor to the Internet). This tale, a ghost story from the ghost’s point of view, is something my mother is convinced was stolen off my BBS and turned into the Patrick Swayze/Demi Moore movie Ghost. (I don’t buy it, but it’s my mom… what’s a son to do?)
Driving Crazy, my debut novel, was self-published in 2010, then picked up by Tate Publishing in 2015, soon to be with Blue Deco Publishing. In addition to this humorous novel, my work has been published in several places: all three of the Writing at the Ledges anthologies, Small Towns: A Map in Words and Seasons of Life, and Voices from the Ledges, as well as Pets Across America III, Washington Square Review 2011, and Fiction 440 Volume 1. I also have an article about Pinball Pete’s that appeared in Retrocade Magazine.
My short story collection, Tell Me a Story, was released in Spring 2016 with Blue Deco Publishing.
My next full-length novel, Trac Brothers, will come out sometime in spring or summer 2017.
I will also have a short story included in Domino Effect, the second in the Lunch Time Anthology series, set to be released in 2017.
