I am a writer and artist from the Westcountry of England now living in London. I write and illustrate latter-day folk-tales full of love, hate, ambition, revenge and beauty, with supernatural interventions and terrible twists.

Very refreshing. A well-told story. I tend to get "stuck" on an author. When I do I read everything by him/her. I'm stuck on Benjamin Parsons. Thank you sir, for sharing your top-notch writings!

This is a very good folktale told in narative form. I really enjoyed it, as it reminded me of the stories told around the campfire when I was a kid in Girl Scouts. Like many folktales, this story doesn't have a fairytale ending in which everyone lives happily everafter.
