HOME

I’VE NEVER LIVED IN THE BOONIES BEFORE…
WHAT COULD GO WRONG?

Jonesberry House

 

ABOUT THE PLACE:

Located in Jonesville, South Carolina, Pineapple Hill is a beach house built in a cow pasture—a sort of farm overrun with kudzu, bamboo and wild blackberries.

Deer raid the small vineyard. A lost swimsuit shows up in the leaves of a banana tree  Still unused to country ways, I shoot guns from the upstairs balcony to breaks the maddening quiet.

When cows get loose, I nudge them home with an old Jeep Wrangler that’s got holes in the floor to let water run out.

A flock of turkeys is collectively named The Wilsons—as in “Hey look! The Wilson’s are here!”

 

ABOUT MYSELF:
I worked in ad agencies and then as a brand development consultant helping clients around the globe. Then I moved to the boonies and became a writer.

My first book, Blue Rubber Pool, was published in September 2018. A second novel is scheduled for the summer of 2020 and two more are in the works.

I enjoy sailing, painting on recycled pallet wood, growing grapes, peaches, and banana trees, and reading in a Pawleys Island hammock on a second floor porch.

This website is where I occasionally blog about the world around me. Just for fun.
