This play is based upon historical research he completed for his novel Wake of the Aspy, 2012 (available at as an ebook). He is also completing the second volume, Below Ben Franey, of a trilogy about the Cape Breton village he grew up in. His other writing and research interests include an introductory film/cultural studies book and various poetry and review essay projects on contemporary politics, culture and film.
