I was happy to join The Miramichi Reader for an interview about aspects of writing Like Any Other Monday. Please follow the link for the review/interview.
Like Buster Keaton, the main character of my novel, Billy Pascoe, joined the professional ranks on the vaudeville stage at five years of age, after having appeared regularly with his parents as a novelty part of their two-act.
I imagined my way into Buster/Billy’s first stage appearance while writing what would become the prologue to Like Any Other Monday. Here’s a photo of young Buster at around that time:
By the age of five, already he’d been performing for more than half his life.
