Randy D Pearson’s creativity and love for the written word came about at an early age. As a child, he wrote his own crudely drawn comic strip series called The Weirdos. His first book, a cartoon book entitled, The Adventures of Marvin and Randy, was concocted at age nine as a birthday gift for his father. From there, he began writing creative fiction and the occasional essay on his Atari 800 and 520 ST computers.
Over his many years of writing fiction, Randy has received his share of accolades. He received an honorable mention in 1986 for his novella, Anatomy of a Ghost. Later, it was “published” on Magrathea, his computer bulletin board system (BBS, the precursor to the Internet). He also won several national writing contests in the mid-2000s.
In 2010, his debut novel, Driving Crazy, came out in paperback. Though self-published, this book has sold well through local (Lansing, MI area) retailers, and world-wide through online sources. People in nine different countries have enjoyed Driving Crazy.
Randy's work has been published in Small Towns: A Map in Words, Seasons of Life, and Pets Across America III, as well as in the upcoming Washington Square Review 2011.

A great read that I'd highly recommend to others.
The exploits of Jay and Austin on their road trip across the States provides plenty of enjoyment and some genuinely laugh out loud moments throughout.
Video game players of a certain age will doubtlessly enjoy the associated references made to their hobby but the novel is clearly designed to cater to all readers so fret not if you're not a gamer!
It's said that actions speak louder than words and that applies to this novel too as not only did I purchase the book but after having enjoyed it so much I also downloaded it onto my iPhone so I could read it again while overseas on my Summer break.
I wish the author all the best with the success of Driving Crazy as we might hopefully see him publish more novels in the future.
