The King of Christmas

Length: 18 pages16 minutes


This atmospheric story is set in lonely coastal town in England. It is Christmas Eve and a fisherman takes to the sea, leaving his ailing daughter at home. When he does not return, she goes to look for him. She wanders the wintery countryside and eventually encounters another lonely soul. I wrote this while I was in hospital, getting chemotherapy for blood cancer; I feel for these characters, fighting for their lives: we all of us have to fight for our life.
