I don't know if I feel the need to comment on Canadian culture so much. I feel like Canadia has been that outlet for me.
I loved writing Steve the First because its premise was simple: a bum like me saving the world after an apocalypse. I knew exactly how this one character would react to all the absurdities and hell that he'd encounter.
I'm working on a feature that will hopefully move beyond my computer. It's in keeping with the tradition of most of my stuff in that it's about a boy and a girl (I know it's not always clear, but ultimately everything I write is about a boy and a girl.) Unlike everything else, it's set on Earth and there are no apocalypses or aliens. It's not science fiction at all. It's the least sci-fi thing I've written. It's 100% sci-fi free!
Joe Mahoney [producer, Steve the First and Steve the Second; story editor on all Matt Watts' radio dramas] has been pushing me to novelize the first Steve series, and I've been tinkering with that over the last few years. Maybe that's what will be next, although it's the scariest and most daunting thing I've ever tackled.
I just keep writing and hope that someone will be interested in it.
