Pineapple Hill is a residence/business retreat created by Tim Bryant, a marketing consultant to clients around the world. It’s a beach house up on stilts in a cow pasture, and a sort of farm overrun with kudzu, bamboo and wild blackberries.
Deer raid the small vineyard. A lost swimsuit shows up in banana trees. Still unused to country ways, he shoots guns from the upstairs balcony to break the maddening silence.
When cows get loose and the old Jeep won’t crank, he is sometimes seen nudging them across fields in an old Jaguar.
A flock of turkeys is collectively named The Wilsons –as in “Hey look Babe! The Wilson’s are here!”
When homesick for beaches, boats and jungles, Tim writes about them. His first novel, Blue Rubber Pool, is under contract for publication in 2018. Three others are close to completion. His recipe is simple: start with one part Jack Kerouac (sentences long, as if paid by the word) and one part Hunter S. Thompson (complete disregard for the rules). Stir. Next add one part memoir and another part strange dream. Shake vigorously. Pour in all you know about love, sadness and redemption. Then allow to ferment until the cork pops out on its own.
If you enjoy sailing, bare feet, roasting oysters, peach cobbler and Pawleys Island hammocks, Tim wants to hear from you.
