Hi! I’m Randy D. Pearson. After my birth at St. Lawrence Hospital in Lansing, Michigan, my parents (Marvin the artist/LCC art professor and Colleen the homemaker) moved us around the area quite a bit. So, I got to live in all sorts of exciting places, like Grand Ledge, Mason and Okemos. However, I spent most of my childhood in the formerly small town of DeWitt, where I graduated high school in 1985.


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 my many years writing fiction, I have 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 wrote a couple years earlier and had “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 for nationwide release beginning 6/16/2015. In addition to this humorous novel, my work has been published in 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 in 2012. My next novel, Trac Brothers, is currently in production.

Be aware, there’s a long load time…
