Welcome! Here's the latest:
I've been working on a wide range of projects, including feature film adaptations of two great novels:
Rockbound, Frank Parker Day's classic about fisherman on Nova Scotia's south coast. Oliver Schmitz, who directed Life Above All is slated to direct.
Indian Horse, Richard Wagamese's award winning story about the residential schools that ravaged Canada's aboriginal communities.
Both of these books are small masterpieces—I'm honored to be working on them.
I have a movie that was just greenlit by CBC. It's still early days but with any luck (and in the film business you need a lot of it) I'll be able to share some news about it in the near future.
The half hour pilot for Time Tremors, a kids drama series and interactive game I wrote with Elizabeth Dancoes premieres on CBC-TV soon. You can check out the app here.
On the theatre front, lots of plays being produced around North America, including New Jersey's wonderful George Street Playhouse, who are touring New Kid in New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. And a new edition of Skin and Liars is about to be released with a new foreword by the great Leslee Silverman.
