I grew up on the grounds of a Kansas insane asylum where my father was a dentist. I attended the University of Kansas during the troubled 1960s getting a degree in art history. After stints writing and teaching in Italy and Japan I had a 16-year career in newspapers as reporter, editor and column writer winning major awards in all categories. I turned to health care public relations serving as director of University Relations at KU Medical Center. I finished my career as media relations officer of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Now retired, I am marketing the fiction I've written over all those years. And creating more.

The Novella "One More Victim" took me 30 years to find the last verse of the poem that ends that story. The quickest I've ever written a novel was three months for the political comedy "SPILL" that Curiosity Quills will release later this summer.(less)

“His soul, it seemed to him, was more than empty. It was desiccated, reduced to the powder of its substance and now in danger of being blown away by the first puff of the dawn wind that presaged the sun.”
Randy Attwood, Then and Now: The Harmony of the Instantaneous All

“New beatitudes came from him [Bobby]: “Blessed are those who live in hovels, for God will give them palaces in heaven.”
He gave them new commandments:
“God weeps when anyone kills in his name; kill not.
“God hates hate; hate not.
“God loves love; love more.
“You need not trust in God; you need hope that God will trust in you.
"You are your own master. The way is within you.”
Randy Attwood, Rabbletown: Life in These United Christian States of Holy America

“I am Christ as he was. He is not important; his way is important," Bobby answered.
"Tell us about the way," another Evangel in the crowd asked.
"Love is the way; hate is not the way.
"Kindness is the way. Humility is the way. Beauty is the way.
"Pride is not the way. Arrogance is not the way. Boasting is not the way.
"Giving is the way. Taking is not the way.
"Follow the way and it will lead you to God. Jesus is the way.
"The way is in each of you. You are your own master and savior.”
Randy Attwood, Rabbletown: Life in These United Christian States of Holy America
