The purpose of this site is to share samples of my writing, and what I have learned about the creative writing process. I will share mixed genres, including memoir and novel excerpts, poetry, essays, short stories, drama, and fables. I hope what you read here will bring you joy.

Fresh, funny, and compassionate, Randy Evans’s border-crossing collection (poetry, short story, fable, play, memoir and novel excerpts) never loses his voice or identity as he shifts from one genre to another. The death, grief, and bereavement of the loss of his wife to breast cancer serve as a central theme, along with hilarious forays into magical realism. “I laughed and wept, openly and honesty, dozens of times-beautiful storytelling!” – Wade Rouse, bestselling memoirist.
