About Me

Oh, hello.

Since you clicked ABOUT at the top of this website, I'm guessing you're at least a little curious about the guy who runs this place. That'd be me, Todd Rigney, a so-called "writer," "author," and "copy editor" who publishes an array of terrible stories specifically designed to stimulate your pineal gland. And, of course, help pad out my bank account a bit, but that doesn't seem to be working at the moment. But there's always the future, am I right? Ha. Humor. I'm not very good at it.

Anyway, if my name sounds vaguely familiar, maybe you've watched director Scott Schirmer's 2012 horror flick FOUND by a) hanging out with a friend who owns the movie, b) attending a film festival a few years ago that screened it, c) streaming it from one of the several currently available services peddling their wares these days, d) downloading it as a torrent, or e) someone let you borrow their DVD/Blu-ray and you noticed my name in the credits. That's because it's based on my book of the same name, which was originally published way back in 2004. Regardless, we probably don't know each other, so hello there. I'm Todd.

Pleased to meet you.

In short: I was created in Lexington, Kentucky, and it's pretty much where I reside today. Well, I don't really live in Lexington, so much as I live on the outskirts. But that really doesn't matter, does it? All you really need to know is that I have written stories, and I would like for you to purchase a book and read those stories. I'd really like it if you enjoyed those stories, but let's not put the cart before the horse. You gotta take a chance on me first. Such is life and all that jazz.

Sorry if that's somehow disappointing.

I used to work at a TV station. I made this show:

And I also made commercials, including this one:

Need more information? Let's see, I'm almost 40, I work for a news service (where I read articles all day and correct misspellings and poor grammar), and I spend a lot of my free time watching bad movies/TV shows and playing video games. I'm married, have cats, and a receding hairline. Was that too much information? Perhaps, but you're the one who clicked the ABOUT button, not me.

This website will eventually contain a robust collection of my thoughts, feelings, and musings on various topics that enter my mind when I should probably be paying attention to other, more important things. However, when you suffer from a short attention span and bipolar disorder, you kind of make do with what you have. I feel like I'm being too whiny right now. Am I? Actually, don't answer that. Instead, find the MY BOOKS section at the top of this website and click it. There, you'll discover some books I've written over the years. Select the one that strikes your fancy and purchase it. We'll instantly become close friends.

Not really, but it's a nice thought. Again, not really.

Enjoy the rest of your visit!
