Anthony Randall started his writing career at the tender age of seventeen, primarily as a song writer penning hundreds tunes and recording with many bands, a hobby that he still enjoys. Not being an avid reader in his youth, he hadn't seriously read any novels at all until he was introduced to Robert A. Heinlein’s ‘Time enough for love’ by a friend when he was thirty-years-old. From then on he hasn't stopped reading, sometimes having three books on the go at one time. As he says “I am definitely a late bloomer.”
He was tempted into book writing by his co-author Doug Goddard back in 2002, Doug is Dyslexic and originally asked Anthony to first decipher his scrawl, and then to correct his spelling in order to turn his story into a book. As a by then avid book reader he realized instantly the lack of content in Doug’s writing and proposed that they write together, Doug’s stories, Anthony’s words. He believes the synergy works well, the analogy that he has given it is of Doug giving him a pencil sketch and him turning it into an oil painting.
They have published to date two novels on Amazon in the English Sombrero series, ‘Nothing to do but run’ and ‘The Little White Ball’, both are available in e-book and paperback format, book three ‘Choice’ is under construction, as is a new title, a thriller called ‘The Tip of the Teaspoon’. Doug has a book in his own right in circulation called 'What goes around, comes around' and Anthony is working on a novel called 'Tales of Tucson'.
