#3chicksandsomebooks Author Feature for @RandyDPearson #bookpromo #michiganwriters #michlit

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 novelsDriving Crazy, Tell Me a Story, and Trac BrothersRandy 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.

Their journey through Michigan’s scenic Lower Peninsula will introduce them to a world they never imagined, forever changing many lives.Can they trust the Rail Riders, the bizarre but friendly group of people living off the grid?

ANOTHER Award-Winning Author Added to 2020 NBCC #3chicksandsomebooks

Where Readers And Authors Come Together…And Depart Friends.
2020 Bliss
Lauren Francis-Sharma Is Back With Her 2nd Book And It’s Another Page-Turner Featured at 2020 NBCC
Book Lover:
In 2015, Lauren Francis-Sharma burst upon the literary scene with the highly praised debut novel, ‘Till The Well Runs Dry, called a “lush, elegant epic” by Essence magazine. 
 
Her second literary offering promises to be just as dramatic and engaging, and we are proud she will again join us at the National Book Club Conference.
 
This time, she will discuss The Book of the Little Axe, which releases next May, a novel set in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries about migration and the intertwined destinies of black and Native Americans in shaping the West.
 
In 1796 Trinidad, young Rosa Rendón quietly but purposefully rebels against the life others expect her to lead. Bright, competitive, and opinionated, Rosa sees no reason she should learn to cook and keep house, for it is obvious her talents lie in running the farm she, alone, views as her birthright.
 
But when her homeland changes from Spanish to British rule, it becomes increasingly unclear whether its free black property owners–Rosa’s family among them–will be allowed to keep their assets, their land, and ultimately, their freedom.
 
By 1830, Rosa is living among the Crow Nation in Bighorn, Montana with her children and her husband, Edward Rose, a Crow chief. Her son Victor is of the age where he must seek his vision and become a man. But his path forward is blocked by secrets Rosa has kept from him. So Rosa must take him to where his story began and, in turn, retrace her own roots, acknowledging along the way, the painful events that forced her from the middle of an ocean to the rugged terrain of a far-away land.
 
Lauren brings talent and a rich culturally diverse story that makes our weekend what it is: Literary Bliss.
And guess what: Yep, you guessed it: ANOTHER wonderful storyteller who will join us next year, July 31-August 2, will be announced on Friday. This is how we roll.

But back to Ms. Brown. As an author, attorney and advocate, Cupcake has spoken all over America and Europe, using her years of negative experiences, coupled with positives, to share with others how the hopes and dreams of anyone really could come true, no matter how impossible it may seem.

She has received the University of San Francisco School of Law’s Judge Harold J. Haley Award for Exceptional Distinction in Scholarship, Character and Activities; San Diego State’s Donal Leiffer Outstanding Alumni Award for Distinguished Service; Suze Orman’s Books for a Better Life Award; and the Black Caucus of the American Library Association’s Literary Award for Nonfiction.

A former lecturer at San Diego State, where she taught classes on youth and gangs, she is working on a sequel to A Piece of Cake and writing the script for the film version of her story. Additionally, she is co-authoring the memoir of Stevie J. Stevenson, father of rapper Tyga, who was wrongfully imprisoned for 27 years. Click on her photo to learn more about Cupcake.
