Here you will find information about my writing, my work in economic and community development and my adventures (and misadventures) in suburban homesteading, as well as excerpts, contests, free shipping on my latest book, Ben and the Art of Lawnmower Maintenance, and a sneak peak at my next book, Ocean of Storms. Email me for free signed postcards (they make good bookmarks and fair kindling) and check out my FIELD NOTES blog, which explores subjects ranging from favorite books and movies to lasagna gardening and pocket water fishing techniques.
A good crowd showed up on a cold, rainy night to hear me read from my book, Ben and the Art of Lawnmower Maintenance, and discuss my writing process and some of the projects I am currently working on. Many thanks to Kyle and Myra (and Julia) for the invitation.
Check out the EVENTS page for future engagements. If you would like to have me speak at a function in your community, such as a garden club, book club, public library event, convention, bookstore reading, or retail event, I would love to accommodate you. I’ll bring giveaways and prizes.
Wynfield Creek Homestead is a private residence. I am happy to show visitors around my suburban homestead, but by appointment only, please.
