On Christmas Eve I joined Tony Fisher on BBC Essex Radio on his late night show..
As well as chatting to Tony throughout the programme I read four of my (very) short stories from my new Christmas collection (which comes out next year*) – The Christmas Cracker, The Christmas Play, The Christmas Traffic Jam and Boxing Day Party.
Catch up on BBC Sounds here, and step into the world of 60s Christmas, Essex style.
On Christmas Eve anything is possible. Everyone is dressed in their best. Everyone is looking for a Christmas kiss. It is 1965 and in Chelmsford, friends Linda and Sandra are out on the town. When Charlie climbs out of his car and escorts Linda in to the dance it seems that her Christmas wish has come true. Linda and Charlie have a secret past. But will he remember and will there be a Christmas kiss?
A sweet short story to make your Christmas brighter.

It’s 1962. Marie is going to London for some last minute Christmas shopping. At the railway station she bumps into old flame, Johnny. They are going the same way. On the train ride Marie starts remembering the good times with Johnny and she agrees to meet him for lunch at Schmidt’s, the German restaurant in Charlotte Street. But things have changed since she last saw him. Now Marie has a fiancé. But she also has a Christmas wish. Will it come true?
