Who is Pinball Pete? How did the video/pinball arcade get its start? What’s with the pink elephant?
The answer to all of these questions, and many more, are found in a Q-and-A style article I wrote after interviewing Ted Arnold, the owner and one of the founders of Pinball Pete’s.
It’s a fun read! Check it out:
35 Years and Counting – the Story of Pinball Pete’s – Randy D Pearson
My book from 2016 has it all – humor, drama, excitement, romance, adventure… would you like me to tell you a story?
This short story collection/novel is garnering fantastic reviews!
- “Tell Me a Story” is a highly entertaining collection of wonderfully quirky short stories. The anthology is quite addictive… the first eight stories had me frequently giggling or sitting back admiring the author’s ability to create unusual plot twists. Pearson has a real knack for making characters come alive – and putting them in strange but believable situations. Ray Walsh for Lansing State Journal – Read full review here.

- I greatly enjoyed this delightful collection of short stories. Every story was interesting and offered something different–sometimes sweetness, silliness, maybe some scares or laughs. It was a fun little surprise to see what I was going to read next. — Amazon Customer

With a corn dog in my hand and music in the air, a smile overtakes my face as I stand looking out at the Sand Bar. From my perch on top of the large, concrete bowl, I can see the band members’ legs and feet. But due to the tarp keeping the sun from beating down on their heads, I can see nothing above their torso. It hardly matters, since I don’t know the name of the band and wouldn’t know their faces if I could actually see them. All I know is, it’s a hot, glorious day here at Common Ground, I have a plastic cup filled with Newcastle Ale in my right hand, a thick, tasty corn dog in my left… oh, and my phone is ringing.

Octavio sighed. For one thing, Victor never needed a wingman. He’d score regardless. But the bigger issue for Octavio was his own psyche. It’d only been three weeks since Cassie left him. He had no interest in standing around with a bunch of drunk people, pretending to be okay. Read more

But then on May 24, 2014, I married a vegetarian, and my diet changed.
