Who Whatta What?

I suspect that you’re reading this blurb because there’s more you wanted to know about me. But I guess lucky, or unlucky for the both of us, there’s really not that much more to know. This could have started with an inspiring introduction of how cinema and literature transformed me as an adolescent, how I dreamt of emulating my heroes and so decided to create my own. But really, I’m just a young dude from your average neighbourhood in the southern tip of Canada who wrote a book.

For years I believed filmmaking was my calling-card, and throughout high school I was always skipping out on class to make movies with my friends. But when my dreams of what I wanted to see up on the screen exceeded the limitations of small-town filmmaking, I took the skeleton of my cherished script and rendered it heavily (THANK GOD … sometimes your ideas can suck), working diligently for years to write a novel that I’m completely proud of and dying to share with the world.

I’m pretty new to this journey, so bear with me. The world and people fascinate me, and in these trying and confusing times I’m on my own mission to uncover the truth … all so I can spin it around and deliver a story that’s an honest reflection of the world today. I’m continuously learning. Always reading as much as I can and asking questions. And you’re apart of that life-long education. So become involved, share your ideas and reach out so we can continue creating together.

Some Place Better Than Here

It’s early summer, and in a small community on the central Jersey Shore, a black car screeches to a halt outside the Wright Bros grocery. Danny looks up from where he’s working at the carwash to see the driver rifle out of the car and chase a girl rushing into the store.

For some reason—fate perhaps or intuition—he decides to cross the lot and investigate. When he meets Mary, there is a great deal Danny doesn’t know, but he certainly knows that he’s been struck. For it’s like the keys to an old car had been dropped into his hands and is about to start the engine that will forever alter the outcome of their lives.

Some Place Better Than Here is a gritty, unflinching look at how we define family and come to grips with loss. It’s about growing up in a small town, following your dreams, and mapping out the uneven ground that often lays between love, friendship and sexual awakening.
