Where the Hell Were Your Parents? is a coming-of-age true story about what happens when you let your kids run feral — it’s half Goodfellas, half Stand By Me, and three-quarters Dukes of Hazzard.This comic memoir is an unapologetic romp through the rural South with the Weathington Boys, the most scrumptious delinquents since Huckleberry Finn. Nathan and Brian are identical twin brothers who fight for their lives against gun-toting good ole boys, a sexually aggressive hyena, the FBI, and even Jesus. With a handful of illegal fireworks the boys join forces with the infamous 10-year-old getaway driver Ray ‘Corn Dog’ Womack to form an adolescent version of the A-Team. Years of country chaos ensue, and the boys ultimately find themselves trapped in a high stakes practical joke war. Victory will bring immortality, but one wrong move and they will be taking group showers in a rural Alabama prison.

While living in The Bahamas, he met his Canadian wife and they moved to New Zealand with their two boys. They now make their home in Victoria, BC.
