CRYSTAL AND JACK’S FIRST RIDE ALONG MAIN STREET: An Excerpt from Randolph Randy Camp’s prize-winning WET MATCHES…

On their way to visit Crystal’s parents, the Canadays’ rental Ford Escort slowly makes its way through Shallow Creek’s business district. In the midst of colorful storefront windows, standing out is the boarded-up teen drop-in center cushioned between a laundromat and Middleton’s Drugstore. The plywood enclosing the teen drop-in center is covered with large, spray-painted letters spelling ‘Go home’, ‘Get out of our town’ , ‘Wet Matches’, ect. ‘WET MATCHES’ is an inspiring, triumph-over-tragedy story about five homeless teens getting a second chance at a better life. ‘Wet Matches’ won the prestigious Quarter-Finals Prize at the 14th Annual Writers Network Screenplay and Fiction Competition in Los Angeles.

“Wet Matches: A Novel” is an inspiring and uplifting story about five homeless ‘throwaway’ teens (all HIV positive) getting a second chance at a better life when a young couple on a high school reunion trip rescues them and takes them on a cross-country journey to their new home in sunny California. ‘Wet Matches’ is about friendships, and it asks the question, “How far would you go for a friend?” Fifteen years of separation didn’t stop Crystal from being there for Jalan. What Crystal did for Jalan will inspire us all to take a closer look at our own relationships and friendships…Could you still laugh knowing that death was possibly lurking around the corner? Meet five free-spirited teens: Shelly, Robbie, Josie, Micky and Cole, who will inspire you to enjoy every second of your life. Shelly is pregnant. Robbie plays guitar. Josie’s a little confused. Micky likes cars. Cole’s a little shy. Some people called them useless. They were told to get out of town. Some people said that they were about as good as wet matches…but Jalan, Crystal and Jack thought otherwise. If you had ever been ridiculed, bullied, mocked…or if someone had ever made you feel like you was good for nothing or worthless then Randolph Randy Camp’s award-winning ‘Wet Matches: A Novel’ is a story for you. Without being preachy-but yet-entertaining, ‘Wet Matches’ takes a fresh contemporary look at America’s ever-increasing youth runaway and teen homeless problems. ‘WET MATCHES’ is a Quarter-Finals Winner of The Writers Network 14th Annual Screenplay and Fiction Competition.

NEW K.A.N.S.A.S.

Dissatisfied with the way the adults are running the nation, a well-organized, underground society of intelligent kids demand the right to vote and to be given their own statehood or else. (The kids believe that voting should be based upon a person’s IQ, not their age.
Synopsis: ‘NEW K.A.N.S.A.S.’ (Kids’ Alliance National Society And Sanctuary): Discouraged with his lack of ability to control his own destiny fueled by his parents’ divorce and already fed up with the way the adults are running the country, a twelve year old boy forms a society to give children the Right to Vote and attempts to establish their own State in which to do it. All hell breaks when the U.S. Government starts to hunt down the leader and his underground network. In the meantime, the secretive children’s society is growing to an unbelievable size and there’s no stopping them now! TAGLINE: “Don’t underestimate the power of kids”
Although I’d originally wrote ‘NEW K.A.N.S.A.S.’ as a live action feature, it could also work as an ANIMATED feature-length movie as well. (The ‘Kansas’ in NEW K.A.N.S.A.S. stands for Kids’ Alliance National Society And Sanctuary)

Randolph Randy Camp’s FALSE DANDELIONS (Book Cover)

BOOK ISBN: 1478273720….. Set in rural Virginia, ‘FALSE DANDELIONS’ is a contemporary Southern crime fiction novel filled with romance, small town secrets, broken dreams and murder as locals from Spotsylvania County and Fredericksburg, including a young disabled Iraq war veteran, stop a misguided band of Washington, DC criminals from setting up shop in their quiet town. When Lamar returned home from Iraq they gave him a hero’s welcome but he actually never felt like a true hero until he pulled off his greatest mission ever. A mission that will make this disabled vet a local legend, and a mission that will literally blow you away. Jesse is a rising star but when his mother’s body was found in the murky waters of the Rappahannock, he trades his prized guitar for a shotgun. Ever since Turtle was little, he was always somebody’s errand boy. Now, twenty years later, he decides to break the mold and that is just the beginning of many mistakes Turtle will make. Randolph Randy Camp’s ‘FALSE DANDELIONS’ is about the lives and dreams of underdogs. When you’re stuck in a nowhere place, physically or mentally, you dream of leaving. When you’ve been a nobody and strive to become somebody, sometimes you succeed, sometimes you don’t. Once again, this prolific award-winning writer paints a straight forward picture of contemporary Southern life and reminds us that, regardless of your income or race, there’s a touch of Jesse in all of us and there’s a little Turtle in all of us.

Randolph Randy Camp’s fourth novel ’29 DIMES’ is a love story amid a crazy, hot summer.

THIS IS THE AUTHOR’S DEFENSE TO A FEW READERS’ REACTION TO ’29 DIMES’: December 2, 2013

“My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way.”  Ernest Hemingway wrote those words years ago, and as a writer, I can’t think of a better way to defend myself than with Hemingway’s words. I’ll try to explain.
I understand that some folks around the country have called my latest book ’29 Dimes’ inciteful because I have a hot-mouth character named ‘Pepe’ speaking his mind about Florida’s schizophrenic ‘stand your ground’ law in certain parts of the novel. From my understanding, what’s getting some folks especially riled up is when Pepe performs his provocative, ‘in your face’ spoken-word anthem ‘Hear My Echo’ towards the end of the story. The specific line from that anthem that has got some people bent out of shape goes like this, “…I don’t like standing in Florida – facing a courthouse gun…” Depending on where you stand on the different sides of the ‘stand your ground’ debate, you may possibly see those lyrics as “inciteful”, but I specifically wrote those words for the voice and the mentality of a specific fictional character. It would be an injustice to myself as a writer, and certainly a literary injustice to the fire-tongued character I’d created if I had him voice his opinion and thoughts on other safe and soft topics currently headlining America’s newspapers and not a hot topic such as Florida’s ‘stand your ground’ law. I wouldn’t be true to myself as a writer, nor to my story if I did that.
The ‘stand your ground’ law in Florida and several other states is very schizophrenic because lawmakers and law enforcement officials are picking and choosing when and when not to use and invoke the law, seemingly using it when it’s convenient for them at that particular time and place. For example, take the case of the Florida woman Marissa Alexander who initially was sentenced to 20 years for firing a warning shot at her intruding husband, and when she tried to use Florida’s ‘stand your ground’ law as her defense the judge simply threw it out, saying that she could’ve ran out of the house. But, on the other hand, look at what happened in the other high-profile Florida trial where a vigilante got away with murder, thanks to the convenience of the wishy-washy ‘stand your ground’ defense. The reason I wrote and used the words “…courthouse gun…” in the ‘Hear My Echo’ lyrics was to express mostly my character’s belief, and to be quite honest, some of my own as well, that Florida’s ‘stand your ground’ law is seemingly sanctioned by the state, giving everyday Jane and Joe permission to kill without consequences. When the ‘not guilty’ verdict went viral in the George Zimmerman trial it instantly triggered my memory bank to a time in America when old cranky men draped in white sheets with cone-shape heads would hang a man of a darker shade up in a tree for all of the local town people to see, knowing that there would be no repercussions whatsoever, and everyone nonchalantly walks away as if this was accepted as normal everyday life.
I never intended my novel to be “inciteful”, but I do want it to open discussions in classrooms, at the kitchen table, and around the water cooler. I truly believe that if America is ever going to have better race relations among our very diverse and ever-growing population then we simply must start with a peaceful conversation first.

    BRIEF BIO ABOUT NOVELIST & SCREENWRITER RANDOLPH ‘RANDY’ CAMP CHILDHOOD:
    Randy was born in the rural county of Spotsylvania, Virginia on March 12, 1961. Growing up financially poor served Randy well. His childhood was somewhat harsh at times but made brighter with his wild imagination. Randy learned early in his childhood that you could go places in your mind, and that you can have things…things that are not necessarily in the stores if you think it hard enough. Being financially poor seemingly has made Mr. Camp the very prolific writer he is today. In conversations with Mr. Camp, he would periodically point out the fact about how someone could be financially poor but yet be soulfully or spiritually rich with the added bonus of also being creatively rich all at the same time.

    MORE BIO ON WRITER RANDY CAMP:
    Going to school became an escape for Randy during his early years in rural Virginia. At school Randy could sometimes showcase and express his thoughts through his schoolwork and writing assignments. Randy graduated with Honors from Spotsylvania Senior High School in June 1979. Later, that same year, Mr. Camp enlisted into the U.S. Air Force and continued his undergraduate studies in writing and socialogy during his off-duty time at the Overseas Division of University of Maryland University College at Kadena Air Force, Okinawa Japan. Randy was always writing short stories and absolutely love creating new characters. Over the years, these characters and stories stayed in Randy’s mind and soon developed into longer stories and his current list of feature-length screenplays. Randy has five daughters: Natasha, Melinda, Randie, Ranielle, Christina and one son Joshua. Randy currently has an ever-growing number of grandchildren as well. It’s one of Randy’s greatest dreams to hopefully see at least one of his adult children or grandchildren play a role, either in front of the camera or behind the camera, in a TV show or in a feature movie in which he’d written. Growing up financially poor in rural Virginia has given Randy a drive and determination to succeed and help the next generation of his family to rise above and go way beyond their own expectations. Two of Randy’s favorite quotes are “Don’t be afraid to dream Big! ” and “Don’t let others define you – You define yourself!” …………………………. Randy currently resides in Buffalo, New York and continually writes novels and screenplays.

    EARLY MEMORIES FROM RANDY’S CHILDHOOD:
    People would often ask Randy , “What made you so interested in writing movies”?
    Mr. Camp’s father was a very religous man. He was a carpenter by trade and he built his own churches in rural Virginia. Randy’s father was a Southern preacher who’d gotten “the calling” to teach the word of God. He wouldn’t allow a television in the Camp household because he said that the devil speaks through the TV. It was this particular issue (growing up in a household without a television) that had a profound impact on Randy’s life. As a child, Randy would only get a chance to see a TV show or a TV movie at a cousin’s or friend’s house, and the experience of watching a TV show or movie became such a special event for him, especially when he identified with the characters in the show or movie. At an early age, Mr. Camp developed a desire to create his own characters….and soon enough, his writing talents began to surface.

    Randolph Camp was born in March 1961. He was raised in rural Spotsylvania County, Virginia. Growing up in a somewhat impoverished household, Randolph’s sometimes bleak childhood was made brighter through his desire and efforts to excel in school.
    Eventually, writing stories became a welcomed and much-needed escape from the sometimes harsh realities of his homelife.
    After graduating with honors from High School in 1979, Randolph joined the U.S. Air Force. After traveling around the globe on various military tours, Randolph settled in Southern California.
    Currently, Randolph resides in Buffalo, New York where he continually writes and create characters in which he hopes that at least one or more of his children , including Natasha, Melinda, Randie, Ranielle, Christina and Joshua may possibly play a role based upon a character in which he’d created , or possibly play a role behind the camera on the set of a TV show or movie that he’d written.

    RANDY CAMP, I HAVE A DREAM FOUNDATION & THE LOS ANGELES MARATHON: Outside of writing, Randy Camp has a compassionate heart to help the under-served youths. Mr.Camp is a somewhat quiet, humble man but his heart and spirit is big and very giving, especially to the youths from broken homes. Randy often says, “we gotta help the next generation.” Mr.Camp have helped many kids over the years, and he’d repeatedly said “If you are doing something positive then I will help you.” During Randy’s years in Los Angeles, he became involved with the I HAVE A DREAM FOUNDATION which tells kids in sometimes gang-infested neighborhoods “If you finish school we will pay for your college or vocational school.” The kids in the ‘IHAD’ programs are called ‘dreamers’ ,and these dreamers are provided with year-round academic, social, cultural and recreational activities throughout their elementary, middle and high school years. Randy was enthusiastic about running the 26-mile Los Angeles Marathons to help raise funds for the kids in the IHAD programs. Randy was absolutely thrilled by the amount of support and funds he’d received from his friends and coworkers who’d sponsored him not only in the 2003 LA Marathon but also supported and sponsored his efforts the following year in the 2004 Los Angeles Marathon. Mr.Camp has often said that besides creating characters and writing, the volunteer work and efforts done to help the youths (dreamers) in the I HAVE A DREAM FOUNDATION is one of his proudest achievements. *On March 2, 2003 Randy Camp, then 41 years old and wearing #726, ran (and walked) the 26-mile (plus 385 yards) LA Marathon in 6 hours and 46 minutes. *The following year, Randy Camp, at age 42 and wearing #2736, completed the Los Angeles Marathon in 6 hours and 14 minutes on March 7, 2004. *Between 2003 and 2004 Mr.Camp raised much-needed money to keep the programs up and running for the ‘dreamers’ in IHAD. Mr.Camp has always said that people also learn a great deal from others who’d set an example and he’d always hoped that some of the kids he’d met possibly could learn a thing or two just simply by observing him and the things he do for others.

      THIS LETTER WAS ORIGINALLY SENT TO RANDY ON APRIL 8, 2003 FROM NIKKI CARELLI, PROJECT COORDINATOR ‘I HAVE A DREAM’ FOUNDATION- LOS ANGELES:

      Dear Mr. Randolph Camp:

      The “I HAVE A DREAM” Foundation-Los Angeles (IHAD) is pleased to congratulate you on the successful completion of 26.2 miles of the Los Angeles marathon on March 2, 2003. This is a tremendous accomplishment and the fact that you chose to use this opportunity to raise money for the IHAD programs makes it all that much more momentous.

      IHAD is proud to recognize and honor you for the successful fundraising that your marathon experience provided. Mr. Camp your efforts raised a total of $1,200.00 for the IHAD programs. It requires money to assist our Dreamers starting with the college scholarship that each Dreamer is entitled to upon completion of high school. However, before Dreamers get that far it is our goal to truly prepare them for college level education, and for children raised in low income areas it is difficult for them to find the same resources in order to be fully prepared. Your fundraising will help in providing those resources necessary for our Dreamers. This includes, but is not limited to, tutoring, mentoring, PSAT/SAT test prep classes, and cultural enrichment.

      The ‘I HAVE A DREAM’ Foundation-Los Angeles thanks you for your profound commitment and support. Best wishes to you in all your future endeavors.

      Sincerely,
      Nikki Carelli,
      Project Coordinator
      ‘I HAVE A DREAM’ Foundation-Los Angeles
