A native of the northern plains, Randal grew up in small-town Nebraska and later attended the University of South Dakota where he earned his Bachelor’s in English and Anthropology. His first four short stories were published in 2010. His fiction and other writing has since appeared in various publications.
In his spare time Randal likes to cook, read, and hang out with Libby, the coolest middle school teacher in the world, who also happens to be his wife. He is employed full time as a seeing eye human for his blind miniature schnauzer, Missy.
Randal believes the world of Literary Arts is an active and thriving place, and he wants to get his hands in the ink. In the past, Randal worked as a prose submissions reader for South Dakota Review and Heart & Mind Zine. In 2005 he engineered and produced Microwave Souls, an album of spoken-word poetry, distributed by the Vermillion Literary Project. He also co-founded the Vermillion Writers’ Guild and served as its president for two years. He’s a member of Sigma Tau Delta—the national English Honors Society. He wrote a children’s readers’ theater play, Humpty Dumpty Goes to the Beach, which was performed in 2015 and 2016 by Libby’s ESL summer school class for their Books on the Beach celebration.
Randal’s 2021 projects include the continued writing a new novel began the previous summer, composing occasional short form book reviews on Medium, and conducting author interviews for his new newsletter, Hello, Author.
