Ridley Pearson

USA (1953 - )

aka Wendell McCall, Joyce Reardon

Ridley Pearson likes to climb trees really tall trees in his spare time.  He says he's lucky not to have too much spare time!  He also plays in a rock and roll band with some other authors which has gotten him on stage with Bruce Springsteen, among others.  

An Eagle Scout, Ridley doesn't remember getting a merit badge in writing.

He's had a Broadway play and a television movie made from his books.  He co-writes adventure novels for younger readers with one of the funniest men on the planet, Dave Barry.  

The father of two girls Paige and Storey Ridley says being a dad is the greatest job of all.

Ridley carries a VIP pass that's good for free entrance in any Disney theme park in the worldwhich might explain a few things about the Kingdom Keepers!
