Robert Jackson's website contains Christian and politically libertarian-conservative cartoons, commentary, poetry, and more. He is a graduate of the Curry School of Education at Mr. Jefferson's University, the University of Virginia with a focus in English and American Literature. Though his stories contain mature themes and subject matter as well as realistic violence, they are devoid of blatant and gratuitous sexual and violent content. The novels and poetry of Robert Jackson often involve interracial and cross cultural relationships and tend to be set in historical periods, especially but not exclusively colonial and frontier periods and times of conflict. Thus they often reflect on periods of change and upheaval.
