Author Bio for Randy D Pearson
A lifelong mid-Michigan resident, Randy D Pearson has been creating stories for 40 years, usually in his head but occasionally on paper.
Starting at an early age drawing comic strips and cartoon books, he quickly realized he enjoyed writing stories more than he did sketching.
When he discovered his other childhood passion, the Atari computer, everything came together. He spent many late nights typing his stories, winning several contests in the process.
In addition to his three novels – Driving Crazy, Tell Me a Story, and Trac Brothers – Randy has been featured in several publications. These include all four of the Writing at the Ledges anthologies, The Washington Square Review, Pets Across America, and Retrocade Magazine.
When not writing, Randy spends his time watching British sitcoms with his wife and stepdaughter, or sci-fi and anime with his two brothers. He lives in a small Michigan town with a ridiculous number of cats.
2020 is already shaping up to be a banner year!
I am a panelist at this year’s Storytelling Festival at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum – Sat February 8, 12:30pm
I also have been scheduled for two separate events at the Charlotte Community Library (Charlotte, MI)
On Saturday March 14, I will be leading a presentation on the long lost town of Walton Junction (learned from my research on Trac Brothers), and on Wednesday March 25, my novel Driving Crazy will be featured in a Book Talk.
