Losing to Win! author Randy Jernigan tells me that he hopes to resurrect his Writers Studio and begin teaching again.

The school, which boasts alum Les Bailey of The Vampire Game fame, was located in picturesque Utah and had a reputation for graduating several published novelists, a couple of popular poets, and even two produced screenwriters.

"I miss teaching," Randy recently told me in a phone interview from his Utah home. "There's nothing like the experience of being in a room of inspired, hungry, creative writers. The synergy is absolutely amazing!"

Randy tells me he hopes to begin teaching classes as early as mid-June 2016.

This Summer may prove to be a bit busy for Randy. According to Medium.com Randy will go back into the studio and host 30 new radio talk shows and he's also launched a new line of active wear that bears his motto: "Making the Rest of My Life, the Best of My Life!"

Wishing my friend Randy the best of luck in his creative ventures!

Losing to Win! author Randy Jernigan
According to sales records from Amazon Inc. and Kindle Inc. Randy Jernigan's 2013 release Losing to Win! is once again climbing the charts in paperback and electronic device sales.

The book contains the account of Jernigan's shedding 179 pounds and beating a perilous case of diabetes/hypertension that nearly took the writers life, as well as the recipes he used to help him lose the weight.

According to moviepilot.com, a more detailed account of Jernigan's story will be covered in a soon to be published book (and TV show) by film producer and writer Arianna Eisenberg titled 'Heaven, Angels and Beyond.'

Jernigan is a veteran entertainment journalist who has contributed over the years to national magazines, television programs, and has hosted several radio talk shows.

Jernigan recently published a short biography of Marie Osmond that became a best seller almost immediately and will publish The Life and Career of Ellen DeGeneres early Spring.

Author Randy Jernigan and Jackson
When I sat down to dinner at a small Asian Bistro with my old friend and writer Randy Jernigan, he quickly scanned the menu, searching for the healthiest foods. Today would not be one of his famous “cheat days” he shares on his social media pages–usually Mondays when he and best friend, Jackson Fackrell, indulge in what he terms a “free meal.” Today he opts for several veggie heavy dishes with less calories, and of course, minus the fried rice and noodles. Later, as the waitress cleared the table, I notice that she cleared away his half eaten meal.

At the time I remembered our last meal together, some four years earlier, when Randy scarfed down a huge steak, two huge baked potatoes with all the works, then half the fries left on my plate. I also remember him complaining at the time that he was stuffed to the brim but still hungry.

Food held a much different place in Randy’s life then, than it does now. A much different place.

Food was his main comfort. A cure-all for his deeply hidden, very painful, personal issues. Now, as randy explains it to me, food is a tool.
