Help Wanted!

If you like sliding down chimneys

And you don’t mind being pulled by a deer.

I know of a job where you can register

That will be available later this year.

You must like spreading joy and laughter

And you’ll need a beard that’s white.

The rest of your appearance is not important,

But you can’t give the kids a fright!

Please report immediately to Lapland

And make friends with the elves that are there.

You have a few weeks before they’ll need you

So watch carefully whilst seated in a comfy chair!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
