Hey folks, been a long time since I've written something for this blog but I've been busy writing, visiting great places like Quebec City (for the Quebec Crime Festival) and Costa Rica (for vacation). I also have a new agent and my novel Fall From Grace has been optioned by a LA-based screenwriter/director. This guy walked into a bookstore in LA, liked the cover of my book, bought it, read it and really connected with my main character. So he found me on FB and offered to option it. Fun.
But the real fun is here. I haven't talked about it much here but I'm a huge Amazing Race fan. I've watched all the US seasons, even the Australian and Asian ones. And when I heard that Canada will be doing its own version, I had to apply. So my good buddy Gord (who is also a big fan and a fun dude) and I made an audition tape and applied. We just sent the stuff out early but heck why wouldn't they pick us: two middle-aged, stay-at-home dads, one just happens to be a bestselling crime novelist. That's great TV. Check out our video below.
