Sugar Ray Dodge: Stalker and Troll

     If Webster or any other reputable lexicon ever put a picture next to the words "troll" and/or "stalker", they could do worse than use the hideous image above. Usually, a writer has to make it before they earn their first stalker. But Sugar Ray Dodge has decided to put the cart before the ox, as it were.
     Ray is a failed humorist/artist who, since last year and for no apparent rational reason, has decided to abandon his already neglected blog and make me his second career. But I'll get to his online abuse in a moment.
     This miscreant, to me, represents everything that is wrong with the internet, a quasi-real environment that gives the stupid, hateful and banal a wider audience on which to inflict their stupidity, hatefulness and banality. And his character flaws aren't even predicated on originality but derivative in every way, shape and form. He fancies himself a humorist while slavishly ripping off the concept of Mystery Science Theater 3000. He fancies himself an artist, even though his mouthless creations seem to be ripped off from Lego (If only he was as mouthless as his subjects).
     And, since this man, for want of a better word, with all of 310 followers on Twitter has failed in every conceivable endeavor, he has decided to focus his dubious energies on yours truly.
     Ray began following me on Twitter last year for reasons known only to him and the many voices in his addled head. I chose not to follow back because, frankly, I didn't think he was either funny, informative or interesting enough. He eventually unfollowed me and right on the heels of that, I found a one star "review" of American Zen that was just a hit piece. Eventually, in a rare show of good judgment, Amazon had seen fit to remove it (However, since they banned me for no good reason four years ago, I cannot post anything on their site, including responses to any reviews).
     That was when I decided to block this troll and that's when his stalking really kicked into high gear. Next thing I knew, he'd sent me a single penny for a donation through my Paypal account, which I immediately rejected and returned to him with a message to leave me alone. Not content with that, he continued auditing my every move through this blog then wrote another one star hit piece on my new novel, Tatterdemalion.
     This time, he'd actually bought the Kindle version so he could "legitimately" post a "review" of my work with the expectation that, unlike the last hit piece, this one would stay up. But I've already reported this creep's so-called review and I want anyone who reads this to do the same. This is the only reason I've linked to it. You need to read it to believe it so you can get a sense of what a twisted little troll this guy is. Note you'll never see any specific objections to my novel but there are plenty of ad hominems with references to this blog. This is because, while he may be a verified purchaser, Sugar Ray Dodge obviously did not read Tatterdemalion.
     It's just as obvious that he's bound and determined to try to destroy my publishing career for no other reason than pure spite. Maybe it was because I refused to follow him on Twitter. Maybe his Mommy didn't breast feed him. I don't know and, frankly, I don't give a shit. So, once you read his "review", I hope you'll do the right thing and report this frustrated asshole for abuse and, hopefully, we'll get it, and his Amazon presence, removed once and for all.

Addendum: His IP address is, which places him in the Salt Lake City area. Do with it what you will, peeps.

"J. David Chadwick, alternately known as SUGAR RAY DODGE, is a writer, U.S. Army veteran, graphic artist, puppeteer and full-blown RiffTrax fanatic. He is also the founder and editor-in-chief of"

"Dave Chadwick is Sugar Ray Dodge. The son of a biblical archeologist, he hails from the Great State of Utah and fancies himself something of a world traveler and pompous blowhard. He has lived in Israel, Colorado, Germany, Iraq and Maryland. He is a former U.S. Army Recruiter and is a two-time Iraq War veteran. He was also TIME Magazine's 2003 and 2006 Person of the Year. He has written three novels: Happy Valley, Son of Santa, and The Tumbleweed Dossier. He currently resides in Ogden, Utah. Visit his website at"

He was only Time's Person of the Year in 2003 in a collective sense (the American soldier), while all of us were Time's Person of the Year in 2006 (you). Come to think of it, the American soldier wasn't exactly noble in 2003 for taking part in a war of aggression.

His personal website link merely takes you back to his Amazon page. It doesn't appear that his books sell well either.

Anyone who stalks someone else online doesn't have a life.

Thanks, CC. I read all that last year and just didn't want to give out too much information because I don't want to give him the notoriety. Now it looks as if I may. I hope you did your patriotic duty, as Sugar Ray did in Iraq in 2003 (which probably explains his bizarre behavior) and reported his "review" for abusive conduct and gave it an unhelpful vote.

A 2nd interesting addendum: He spent a total of an hour, 17 minutes and 20 seconds on my blog, going back and forth, obviously harvesting quotes to put up on his ghost town of a blog to post another jeremiad about me. He's also blocked two of my Twitter accounts. But when you go after someone for no rational reason, don't expect for them to not notice and push back.
