The view from the Cab.

The view from the cab
Not so long ago there was a women in the back of my cab who wanted me to listen to her interpretation of why the world in so much financial trouble. She started her explanation by telling me that her son had just had to sack the family nanny. Then she went on… “Do you know” she said, “that he’s had to approach his bank to raise millions to keep the business afloat and do you know why that is, well I’ll tell you why. It’s too many washing machines and televisions that’s why. People want too much, too many foreign holidays. They will have to put up with less. What’s wrong with going to the laundry?” I told her that I thought she had just arrived from Mars.

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.
