In 2008, after a decade as a landscape contractor, Phil sold his business and moved from the McMansion filled suburbs of Northern Virginia to rural Pennsylvania. He spent a couple of years as a mediocre gardener, before finding permaculture.
A few years later, and two completed PDC’s, he became a permaculture consultant. In addition to consulting, he’s spent the past six years developing his six-acre hillside into a permaculture site. His permaculture work can be found at FoodProduction101.com.
Phil is an accidental author. He had been writing in the winter for many years—with no intention of publishing. With the support of his wife, he published his first book, Fire the Landscaper in 2015. With his permaculture site mostly complete, more of his time is now spent writing.
He believes that entertainment is biased in favor of the state. Books, movies, and television often feature government employees as heroes, and anti-government people as the antagonists. With his books, he endeavors to counteract this bias, and show the state as it is. He joins us today to discuss how independent publishing can be a path to freedom.
His new releases can be read for free at PhilWBooks.com.
