The World of Hamish McBeth My partner and I don’t bother about Christmas very much. It doesn’t mean much to her and I loathe the commercialism; so we tend to leave it alone. This year I did buy myself a small Christmas present – a Hamish McBeth novel, called Death of a Charming Man, from […]

It is often said that genius and creativity lie close together. I have a guest post on the Psychology, Philosophy and Real Life blog where I examine this idea. I think I know what the idea is but all the creative people I know are quite sane. I also talk about bringing creativity into our […]
