I wrote and directed the award-winning feature film Goldirocks (2004), which opened theatrically in Canada and aired on pay TV channels The Movie Network and Movie Central.  It is now streaming on Amazon.com. Goldirocks premiered at the Montréal World Film Festival and also screened at film festivals in Calgary, São Paulo, Cairo, Los Angeles, Sedona and Anchorage. Goldirocks won Best Indie Feature at the LA Femme Film Festival in Los Angeles.

My romance novel The Cowboy Singer is a fun read that has now been optioned for television with a brand new teleplay also written by me.

About The Cowboy Singer:

April Connors figured her love life was on hold indefinitely now that she was about to have a baby while temporarily staying at her grandmother’s house (what a turn-on!). Meeting infamous country singer Jimmy Wick may have made her giant belly flip, but she was filing him under a big “as if.” No man in his right mind would fall for a gal this pregnant, and besides, she needed to focus on herself and the baby. James Warwick (a.k.a. Jimmy Wick) was not in his right mind. His ex-wife was petitioning for full custody of the only thing that made him happy besides playing music, his four-year-old princess, Summer, and the thought of losing her had him crazier than an outhouse rat. His saving grace was his new ‘friend’ April who he was falling head over heels for. The only problem was, April had just been knocked up, dumped and stranded by the last guy she was with and was in no mood to go down that road again. She was hellbent on getting her life back on track just as James was watching his fall apart, leaving them both caught off guard by the unstoppable romance that would sweep them off their feet.

I have developed two feature scripts with Telefilm Canada’s Writer’s First program; a romantic comedy called Good Taste, and Goldmine, an historical dramaI’m developing the feature comedy Recruiting Lindsay Martin with co-writer Tanya Henley at True Gravity Productions, where I’ve also recently written two pilot scripts for television, Jackie Vegas and Cemetery Cop.

I also write a lot of music, including many of the songs and plays on the children’s album Be Who You Are.
