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. When they went belly-up, it was picked up by Blue Deco Publishing. In addition to this humorous novel, my work has been published in several places: all four of the Writing at the Ledges anthologies, Small Towns: A Map in Words and Seasons of Life, Voices from the Ledges, and the upcoming Promptly Speaking – 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.
Trac Brothers, my newest full-length novel, came out in February 2018. It’s been called a, “Deft trail tale,” “hard to put down,” and “Pearson’s best book yet.”
I will also have a short story included in Domino Effect, the second in the Lunch Time Anthology series, set to be released in 2018.
