I have been a Christian since I was 16. Married my high school sweetheart (which is a 3 year tale of suffering) and we are still married (which is a much longer story of love, suffering, torment, romance, sword fighting, pirates… wait, that last part is the Princess Bride).20140222_175821_Richtone(HDR)

I’m also a father, a Navy Vet, a gamer, and I tend to think I am much younger than I really am. (You will hear me often quote about how much pain I am in on a normal basis.. but then again, when I was 19, I didn’t think I would live this long, so…)

I have a very odd perspective on things, seeing things more for how they really are, versus how I would like them to be. This tends to make me a bit jaded and cynical, but then again, it also helps me see things in a slightly funny and weird light.

I’m not here to offer you the answers to my questions, although, sometimes I might. But more to the point, I hope that in my open discussion of what is going on in me, it might spark in you the ability to see that you are not alone in your struggles, questions, or quandaries.

So, your perspective is welcome, but just recognize, it’s not mine. I tend to write how I think.

So, I welcome you into my world and to the Battlefield!


I recently changed where I post my fiction writings. So if you are interested, head on over to R. Todd Writes (and thanks for checking things out!).

  1. Hi, R.Todd 🙂 I’ve been enjoying your comments on Paola’s blog so finally decided to check out your world. SO glad I did 🙂 But the first thing is…what name do you like to be called? I doubt it’s “R” and probably not “Todd.” I like to address people by name which is why I’m asking. If you like R.Todd, you got it 🙂

    Anyway, I’ve read a couple of posts so far and really love your humor and voice 🙂 I haven’t gotten to any fiction, but hope I can at some point. I’m thinking it’s good!

          1. Well, in a way, I’m sort of patting myself on the back, too, since we seem to have very similar sensibilities 😀 hehehe

            But, yeah, you seem pretty dang special and although the only writing of yours I’ve read so far are blog posts and comments, I’m going to say “talented” too 🙂 And, from here, I may be seeing some rose in those cheeks 😉
