Who is Randall P. Girdner?

Transported to this universe from another dimension, Randall P. Girdner survived his youth in rural Oklahoma with the help of comics, movies, books, and television. He has been a teacher since 1995 and has taught elementary, middle, high school, and university students around the world. His adventures have led him and his family to extended stints in Tahlequah, Scottsdale, Vancouver, Toronto, Shanghai, Dhaka, Accra, and Abu Dhabi.

His biggest achievement is his middle grade novel, entitled, “Mr. Ping’s Almanac of the Twisted & Weird presents Boyd McCloyd and the Perpetual Motion Machine”. This award-winning* series of books follows the infamous Boyd McCloyd, his sister Cindy, a yeti, and a talking crocodile. He is also the creator of the Maurice the Beaver comic strip, which has a very small, but devoted social media following. Despite creating well-over five hundred strips, he still makes zero money from these endeavors. 

Randall is also a filmmaker; the writer/director of a short film titled Teacher and the feature-length film, The Bean. Someday, he will figure out what to do with them. He has written over forty screenplays that Hollywood has yet to discover. If they were smart, they would seek him out.

Randall writes plays, draws comics, and inspires students (mainly by yelling at them for little or no reason at all). He is an empty-nester alongside his better half, Tracey, as their daughters, the loves of their lives, have forsaken them for life at university. Randall is still teaching, and still creating, and hopes to continue to do so for many years to come. He just needs to make a living at it. 

Randall also likes to refer to himself in the third person.
