My New Novella - Death’s Door - A Novella of Love, Life and Death.
“She was like the dawn, insubstantial and somehow transient, as though she would fade from reality at any moment.”
Every day the villagers watch as Death, a spectral suit of black armour mounted upon a horse, rides through the valley beneath their mountain top home. After a lifetime living on the edge of Death’s domain, his close proximity is neither terrible or threatening, rather he has become a simple fact of life and a familiar neighbour. Nothing seems to change until one night a young boy, alone in the meadows beneath a summer moon, watches a mysterious figure in white approaching the village through the tall grass.
That fateful night culminates in a love story that crosses the borders between the village and the valley, childhood and adulthood, and even life and death.
