I created this blog site to serve as a platform for some of my interests and as a way to document the things that I enjoy. I’m also hopeful that, within these pages, there is at least something that will be of interest to even the most boring of individuals.  Either way, whatever quirks of fate have brought you here, thank you for reading even this far.

By day I am a doctor (hence the medical articles, which I write fortnightly for the local newspaper) but outside this I have  other projects that keep me busy. One such project is just beginning to take shape. Check out the ‘Music Project‘ page to see what I am getting up to – I’m pretty excited about this one!

As you can see from the picture above, I love a good book and so hopefully the book review page will be fairly self explanatory. Whenever I read a book, I will give it a brief review as to whether I like it or not. Maybe a good place to look if you’re looking for inspiration for your next read?

Writing a novel has been a big target for a long time and I have managed to get one under my belt (‘On the Shoulders of Men’). Despite trying my best to get it noticed, it has been met with resounding silence from agents and publishers alike. I hope in the future to be able to demonstrate extreme smugness towards those that have previously passed when I finally write my masterpiece. In the mean time, I have tried my hand at some short stories which are variously entered into a few competitions at the moment so we’ll see how they do. In the mean time, if there are any literary agents out there then, rest assured, I’m your guy. (Honest).

While the novel may not be published, I have managed to get another book out there in physical form – a collection of my medical columns entitled Health Notes: A GP’s Miscellany. You can pick up a copy here… https://www.amazon.co.uk/Health-Notes-Miscellany-Will-Hearsey/dp/B08NYGKMM2

If none of that takes your fancy, hold on! Have a look at my blog page for some random travel articles and general musings. Everything is fair game here from posts about scuba diving, current affairs, wild camping and trips to haunted hotels.

Then there’s the video games page where, much like the book reviews I post short reviews on some of the latest games I’ve managed to get through. If staying indoors isn’t your thing, I’ve got that covered too. Click on the nature page to see some of the footage I’ve caught for my Instagram page ‘Wilfred’s night time creatures.’ This originated from an impulsive purchase of a trail cam followed by a move to within 10 seconds of a woodland. That combination inevitably resulted in me setting up the camera in the woods from which ahs grown a new obsession. The Instagram name started out as a joke but actually, I now quite like it. Give me a follow to stay up to date with all the creatures I find.

Above all, if this all tickles your fancy (I fail to see how it couldn’t), follow me on Instagram, Youtube, Twitter and on this blog to subscribe to all of the updates.
