Marrying her her high school sweetheart shortly after college, she spent nearly three years writing her first novel, Spilled Milk, which chronicled her time in the courtroom testifying against her sexually abusive father.

Randis engages audiences on a local and national level to raise awareness about child abuse, serving as a frequent commentator to media outlets. She has developed local high school presentations on teen dating violence, was named Community Woman of Distinction by East Stroudsburg University, and was invited to the Pentagon to speak to the department of defense about child abuse.
