Burning Wolfhound - a novel

I have written six novels over the years but I regard the first five as practice and not for publishing, this is number six:

Available on Amazon as a Kindle or paper book:
Burning Wolfhound a novel by Justin Tuijl - view at amazon

Wolfhound is an action adventure thriller where Bernhart Smith chases a gang of criminals across the world in his ex-navy gun boat the Wolfhound. Set in 1968 during the cold war, starting on a deary North Norfolk Coast of England and with a Norton motorbike; then on to Rotterdam, Oldenzaal, Gibraltar, Monaco, Malta, Egypt, and India where he meets the early scene if Goa freaks. Finally on a Royal Enfield motorbike he heads up India and on to the Himalayan town of Darjeeling where he finds his journey has not ended. We are swept along with the main characters fears and desires as we burn to a gripping twist at the end.

Contains scenes which are not suitable for minors. Sex (not explicit) drug taking (not excessive) violence (not graphic) maybe a 15 rating. 100.000 words.

Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard

Now I have a 24" monitor on my laptop I find that the £5 keyboard is really not up to it. Hence the Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard. Very nice. I have started my degree in Creative and Professional Wiring this year and think I have a lot of typing ahead, hence the keyboard. It was only once I got this I realised how hard I had to hit the keys on the old one, as first of all with this one it hurt I was hitting them so hard. Pretty much sorted on the computer front now. I bought Dell hoping for longevity from this item. I don't like to buy new stuff all the time from an environmental standpoint.

Early days

The Pioneer compact hi-fi

When I got a proper job I was able to start saving for something better and I bought a Pioneer compact Hi-fi which after a time I really started to hate. The Pioneer quality was lacking from this unit and really a lot of it was for show, like the twin display spectrum analyser. I hated the way the cassette and cd decks clunked about. Many things frustrated me with it, like th…
