Katie Mac is a Prince Edward Island writer who shares her life with a dog named Buffalo Bill. She writes noir, thrillers and westerns, all with a little bit of love and comedy. She wrote and produced the short film ‘Currie’ based on the life of PEI-born wild west outlaw George ‘Flat Nose’ Currie. When not writing, she is pursuing her latest obsession: all things fly fishing. She received an Island Literary Award for her short story ‘The Key to Wednesdays’ which was about fishing and mental health.

Neilly Reid finds herself swindled into pushing paper in a crooked public works department. She can handle the bureaucracy, a bit of white-collar crime, and the dim-witted local police, but things get dicey when she catches feelings for Jesse Root, the bag man for the small-town mob. From the Ken’s Corner parking lot, Jesse is scheming to win a seat in the provincial legislature. He needs Neilly by his side to sanitize his image while he juggles the demands of the mobster who runs the seedy underbelly of this postcard-perfect town from the seat of his snowplow.

Currie takes home prize at The Billy The Kid Film Festival

Currie: A short film by Katie Mac, Directed by Justin O’Hanley

Before Flat Nose George Currie ran with the infamous band of robbers headed by Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, he enjoyed a simple childhood by the ocean in Prince Edward Island, Canada. In 1901, his sidekicks – Kid Currie and Josie Bassett – travel to his birthplace without him and share the soon-to-be-forgotten legend of Flat Nose.

Currie was an official selection in the Tombstone Film Festival, the Bass and Belle Film Festival, the Charlottetown Film Festival and took the Best Western Short award at the Billy the Kid Film Festival.
