The View From The Cab.

The view from the cab
I’m partial to a cup of tea, now and again whilst I drive around the crowded streets of London, but owing to the caffeine, seldom does it stay longer than a passing memory. I made up an anodyne observation on the cruelties of older life the other day, and shared my distress with another Cab driver. I pulled alongside at a set of traffic lights and this is what I said about my dilemma:..”I’d love a cup of tea, but then I’d have to Pee. I hope there isn’t a queue, when I need a ‘W.’ He looked at me in a strange way, and said..”I think you’re mad.” Must have been a foreigner.


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 in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. 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 in the UK.
