Randall Emery was born in Lawrence, Kansas and raised in Kansas City. He has moved more times than he can count within Kansas and then to Missouri. There is one quote that stands out in his mind that he remembers his mother saying to him when he was younger, “All small children are to be considered as packages of concentrated love because they are a gift to us from the good Lord, God above.” He doesn’t know where that quote came from, if it was something she said herself or something she had heard but it still affects him to this day and is at the core of his beliefs. This quote and his relationship with God had led him to create stories for children that teach them to live a good life.
