Danny Kemp
My Granddaughter Georgia got her voice heard on the Radio programme Kiss100 at 7.10 this morning. There is a few seconds event called.. ‘Shout Out’ apparently, so what did the lovely thing do…shouted out “Buy my Granddads book, The Desolate Garden.” The irony of it is that firstly the book is still lingering somewhere at the press and secondly I really do believe that one day, sadly that I wont see, she will become a writer of note. For a twelve year old with all the distractions of this era she still has room for a vivid literary mind. She gave a speech at School yesterday of her experience whilst out with me at Bluewater, which I have previously mentioned, and last night composed a poem which she has to recite today. Not all the kids of today are disillusioned ‘Hoodies.”


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.
