The Manger and Other Stories

Join me on an imaginative journey through the life of Christ viewed from the 'point of view' of different things, starting with, of course, the manger itself. Journey to Jerusalem with the rein of a donkey. Or imagine you were a pebble carried into Jerusalem with the triumphal entry of the Christ at the start of that momentous week. These and other beautifully written stories are to be found here. More

About Daniel Dacre

Hi, I'm Daniel Dacre. I have collaborated in the publication of a number of works through the years. 'Solomon Seal and the Darkley Troll' is my first work of young fiction. I wanted it to be sad, frightening, funny, uplifting and, somehow, true. I hope I have succeeded.

Inspired by the great Anglo-Saxon classic 'The Dream of the Rood', I wrote 'The Manger and Other Stories'. Each story takes an 'object's-eye-view' in the unfolding of one of the famous stories in the Gospels. Embellishing freely, I have nonetheless written each story in a spirit of 'creative reverence'.

'One Year Under Weeping Mountain' captures the travails of a young southern African nation as it seeks to develop. It is shown through the experience of an English volunteer expatriate teacher. Although a work of fiction, it is in part based on true life occurrences.

'The Word' is a post-apocalyptic epic that envisions a world many centuries after a cataclysmic war. When a warlike people of the north threaten the Island, the hope of its defenders rest on the frail shoulders of a little girl. An extraordinarily gifted girl who must survive at all costs.

I live in the Royal County of Berkshire. I can be contacted at
