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 although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. 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.
