Welcome to my new website.
I live in West End Toronto with my wife – film, television, and live theatre producer Mary Young Leckie. I divide my time between Toronto, the lake country north of Peterborough and sailing in the Bahamas.
Although my writing career has included 2 previous novels, it has been predominately in film and television. I decided a few years ago to write novels exclusively for a period of time and I have completed two. The first is “CURSED! BLOOD OF THE DONNELLYS” about that crazy family from Lucan, Ontario who meets a tragic end. Cursed! has been optioned by Bell Media for an ongoing dramatic series which I have been contracted to write. Wish Us luck!
The second novel is “THE AMERICAN PROBLEM” inspired by my trip to Kandahar, Afghanistan with a film crew in 2009, embedded with Canadian troops. It is in a way an homage to Graham Greene’s amazing, metaphorical novel of the early Viet Nam war, “THE QUIET AMERICAN”.
An earlier novel of mine “COPPERMINE” has also been optioned for a feature film and I have completed that script.
Welcome back to my new website and I’ll do my best to keep it current!
