The Wait.

Danny Kemp
Waiting for the book to arrive back for the formal ‘Sign Off’ brings a feeling of déjà-vu and reminds me of those days in Headcorn. I wanted a traditional inglenook fireplace built and had a builder friend arriving from London on the Saturday to do it. I found a Builders Merchant in a nearby village on the Wednesday who stocked all that was required. When I paid for the delivery I asked for an early morning one, on the day of my friends arrival. “We can’t do things that quick, not out here” he said, adding “Saturday next be all right?” I came to learn the ways of the environment in which I then lived, and I’m becoming to learn the ways of the publishing world….I’m not good at waiting.

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.
