Randy grew up in Baltimore, Maryland in the 1960’s and 70’s and loved “his” Orioles and Colts (before the Ravens). He went on to have a 22-year career as a radio news anchor/reporter, before going into public relations for the next 22 years. He and his wife, Nancy, have lived in Frederick County, Maryland for many years where he is an adjunct professor at Mount St. Mary's University.
Randy loves writing, but his career always involved 100 percent objectivity and non-fiction. As a hobby, he delved into fiction and found he has a passion for it. That’s when the idea for The Adventures of Brooks and Rip (Volume 1) began. As this is his first book, he wrote from personal experiences – the book is fiction, but is based on some of his experiences as a youth.
