Todd Boyd

I survived as a carpenter, railroad worker, and a social studies teacher before I retired for good, so I am no longer tied down to the wage industrial complex tracks, like Sweet Sue, like sweet sue used to.

I define myself as an agnostically oriented spiritual believer in Hope and second, third, and fourth chances because there’s no future in believing only in your own fallibility, no matter how much attention/notoriety you get nor how smart you are.

I’ve been taken on some long rides down life’s road and I’ve driven some too.

Nowadays I write, get to make things up, and continue to try my literary hand as a self-published author, internet radio host, blogging, making some visual art, hosting both writing and open mic events, working on another novel, and enjoying whatever sports my body will let me do.

Self-published author of one novel (Marat, Untrue Loves, four chapbooks-(Shark Poems and Caroline’s Adeline Street and Other Poems), one book of short stories, (Allred’s Short Stories), one journal of personal history (The Election of 2012- A Year of Living Inside the Definition of Insanity). Most of these titles can be found on Amazon for practically nothing.

Some of my work can be found at www.writersontheair.com and at my blog- www.saylavproductions.com.
