Who am I? Indeed, a very good question. There are not many capable of supplying an efficient answer, but of those few I do happen to be one. I am Rob, or Robert in some instances, and I am first and foremost a writer. I write just about everything one can manage. Poetry, short stories, novels, screenplays, comic book scripts, one act plays, among other things. Most of these are horror or Gothic-themed, but some may pertain to religion, which is another of my areas of interest.

My religion is complicated. My religion is my own. My religion is what I make it. I despise those Christians who attempt to say that Paganism is evil, and don't even know enough of their own religion to realize that it was derived from Paganism. I am a Dark Pagan, one who walks the dark path. I find comfort in the night, beauty in the darkness, and solace in death. I have striven throughout my life to bring equality to the religious world. I've tried to point out to people that try and force their religion on me that I have no interest, and never will. I've tried to point out at that those people who would try to convert me would not appreciate me trying to win them over to my religion either, but to no avail. I find myself jaded, now, against Christianity. If you try to 'convert' me, or 'save' me, or tell me that I'm wrong, expect an argument, a resistance, or perhaps even a fight.

I've fought long and hard throughout my life, at times for money, at times for safety, and sometimes simply for fun. I was a backyard wrestler nearly half my life, until I stopped just this last February. I have pain management skills that have continually astounded those around me. I wrestled with a three-inch-deep gash in my leg and a subdermal hemotoma, I recovered from having a shattered knuckle replaced with a metal plate without the aid of pain medication, and have suffered many injuries as a result of my wrestling and fighting, but I have a habit of not giving up.

My life has indeed been a trying one, from drug-addicted parents, to their abusive new lovers, and so on and so forth, but in the end, I wouldn't have the slightest detail changed. It has made me who I am, and because of it I recognize my own strength and will to survive. This is but a fragment of who I am, but it is all that I can really tell you. Anything else you need to know, you will come to through your experiences with me, should you actually know me. Any questions about me any of you have, I will answer, with few exceptions. I am an incredibly open person when asked direct questions, and I don't keep secrets well, so if it is your desire to know more about me, simply ask.
