It's been an amazing year! I was honored to place in the Top Ten at the Cannes Short Screenplay Competition with the script, "Restoration", which I co-wrote. The film caught the attention of actor Lorne Cardinal ("Corner Gas") who is now attached to the project. My writing partner and I just received a Canada Council Grant to write the feature length version of the script, which took first place at the Tribal Film festival, was a semi-finalist at the Austin Revolution Festival and a finalist at Berlin Cinefest. "The Lucy Gray Agency", a comedy pilot I co-wrote, is currently in the semi-finals in the Screencraft Pilot Launch competition, and my short script, "Scarlet", based on "The Scarlet Letter" is in the finals at the Canadian International Film Festival.
"Indian Summer" has been a joy to write. Riding is the most freeing feeling in the world. It makes you feel strong and tough and connected to everyone and everything. Plus, it makes you super cool to your kids for at least fifteen minutes.
