In bed by 8. The general rule for decades now. I start too early, and I’m used to living in a place too criminally dangerous to leave your house when it’s dark. But then – it is time to get over that and live a little (now that I live somewhere civilised). Young at heart – at least when a lovely dinner calls, or some drinks with friends. There is something magical about the warmth of lights and the fresh ocean air at night. It’ll make a party animal out of me yet. Provided, of course, I still get my beauty sleep.
Peter van der Walt is a fiction author, although you may find some non-fiction and the odd essay out there. Fans can find his newsletter, posts, updates and developments at petervanderwalt.com. Currently, he is hard at work on his next story. When not writing, he has far too many interests to reasonably keep up with. He lives with his partner in Devon, England.
