The words of Danny Kemp.

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 although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. 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.
