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, Craven Fork. Email me for free signed postcards (they make good bookmarks and fair kindling) and check out my weekly FIELD NOTES column, which explores subjects ranging from favorite books and movies to lasagna gardening and pocket water fishing techniques.
While we talked some about my book, Ben and the Art of Lawnmower Maintenance, it was election day and the ladies were equally interested in the other hat I wear as economic development director for the county. It was great talking to such a passionate group about the economic future of the area. Many thanks to Peggy Hildreth for inviting me to be part of their meeting.
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, prizes and my Allegedly Famous Bourbon Brownies.
Wynfield Creek Homestead is a private residence. I am happy to show visitors around my suburban homestead, but by appointment only, please.
