ABOUT DARRELL J. PEDERSEN
ABOUT THE "LITTLE DICKENS"
Darrell J Pedersen spent much of his adult life serving others as a parish pastor at numerous Minnesota churches. After nearly 40 years of ministry as an ELCA pastor, he retired and added the title of author to his lengthy resume.
Guided by his deep faith, Pedersen hopes that his ability to tell stories, love deeply, and laugh at himself will encourage others to do the same. Pedersen resides in Northern Minnesota with his wife, Jennifer. Together, they have three grown children and thoroughly enjoy being grandma and grandpa to Anders and Bjorn.
His debut book, Campfire in the Basement, is filled with amusing retellings of his colorful family history and thought-provoking bits of wisdom garnered from a long life well lived. Eloquently and expertly written, readers will enjoy the tales inspired by the author’s life as a child, husband, father, pastor, and passionate outdoorsman.
