Friday 29 December 2023


Another bad night. I've had a series of short naps throughout the night, but no proper sleep. I've had a number of nightmares, most of which are very unpleasant. That's why I'm 'working' at ridiculous hour in the morning.

NOTE: The time displayed below is incorrect. The UK time as I write this is 06:34.

I bought some items from Amazon yesterday. Among three types of wound dressings, I purchased a book 'Photography for Writers' by Simon Whaley. I have a number of other books by Simon, and they're really good

Simon Whaley is a writer, author, and photographer.

Like many writers, he's had a few proper jobs along the way (high street bank, local government, civil service) but found that life as a writer suits him better. Since his first book hit the UK bestseller lists in December 2003, he's authored and contributed to several books, written hundreds of articles and seen several of his short stories published across the world.

Check out his new British Cozy Crime series, the Marquess of Mortiforde Mysteries, set in the stunningly beautiful Welsh Borders. The first book in the series, Blooming Murder, is out now!
