Richard S. Todd, President of The Editor’s Desk, is interviewed by Brian Baker of The Town Crier.

The May 22nd, 2014 edition of The Town Crier featured Brian Bakers’ interview with Richard S. Todd, President of The Editor’s Desk.

The interview, which took place in the Mt. Pleasant West area of Toronto, covered many topics, including screenwriting, book publishing, Mr. Todd’s charitable outreach program, and The Editor’s Desk.

Here are some snippets:

On his books: The theme of marginalized people factors into Todd’s writing. It was in his first novel, Raincloud, which was self-published in 2008, and in The Orphans of the Creek, which came out in 2012. The Orphans of the Creek is more of a psychological drama, with some violence and a little bit of blood,” he says, a mischievous grin developing. “But the monsters in my books are almost always human.”

On his story Clive possibly becoming a feature film: “I’ve had a few people say it would be a great film because the story is so nicely encapsulated and has a great theme about it,” Todd says. his eyes widening.

On The Editor’s Desk: When he’s not bashing away at the keyboard, Todd runs the Editor’s Desk, a company that offers editing services, screenplay coaching, and translation.

On charitable work: Todd also dabbles in altruism. In December he initiated Pay it Forward Coffee Day – Warm it Up!, an event where he bought 10 cups of coffee and handed them out to homeless people.
