The words of Danny Kemp.

The view from the cab
Look Right, Look Left then Look Right Again.
Some advice tonight from The London Cab…Last summer a “Bicycle For Hire” scheme was introduced into London by the collective brains on the Transport Committee. I believe that such schemes exist in other European cities. However London differs from most of Europe and America in one huge important detail that is not advertised significantly well…WE DRIVE ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE ROAD. Another cycling fatality was announced on the radio today, and as it is only January I would assume that the person killed was a local. The roads in London are generally narrow, congested, confusing and highly dangerous to those on two wheels. Unless you are in a One-Way street learn what all children learn at school… LOOK RIGHT LOOK LEFT THEN LOOK AGAIN

About Danny Kemp

I was at work one sunny November day in 2006, stopped at a red traffic light when a van, driven incompetently, smashed into me. I was taken to St Thomas' Hospital and kept in for a while, but it was not only the physical injuries that I suffered from; it was also mental ones. I had lost confidence in myself let alone those around me. The experts said that I had post-traumatic stress disorder, which I thought only the military or emergency personnel suffered from. On good days, I attempted to go to work, sometimes I even made it through Blackwell Tunnel only to hear, or see, something that made me jump out of my skin and that's when the anxiety attacks would start. I told my wife that I was okay and going regularly, but I wasn't. I could not cope with life and thought about ending it. Somehow or other with the help of my wife and medical professionals, I managed to survive and ever so slowly rebuild my self-esteem. It took almost four years to fully recover, but it was during those dark depressive days that I began to write. My very first story, Look Both Ways, Then Look Behind, found a literary agent but not a publisher. He told me that I had a talent, raw, but nevertheless, it was there. His advice was to write another story and that I'm delighted to say, I did. The success of that debut novel, The Desolate Garden, was down to sheer hard work, luck, and of course, meeting a film producer.
