Good morning everyone. Snow laying on the ground again this morning but the roads and the pavements seem clear. There are many elderly people living near me and the pavements are often neglected by the Council so it’s good to see that this time someone cares. Up until a few years ago Wilmington, where my wife and I live, could still rightly be called a village, but they took away the Post Office and now is seems we are simply a cut through from one motorway to another. We have no bus service that travels anywhere but East, so for those that chose not to drive, a journey in any other direction becomes a day trip.Yet in this small village (I still use the term) there are two of the most sort after Grammar Schools in the County, where private bus and coach loads of children are fetched then carried away every working day. The roads are narrow, too narrow the council says for any local bus route, but for those who find their education here surprisingly not. Why is it that Grammar Schools that we have been derided by countless political parties as being too selective and divisive are so popular that funding can be found for their transportation but none for the elderly who now have to travel for what a Post Office used to supply. When do you think that money will cease to govern our everyday lives?
About Daniel Kemp
Daniel Kemp is a seventy-four-year-old member of The Society of Authors. He is also a bestselling writer. He writes stories that appeal to those who like challenging themselves to solve mysteries that are set out before their eyes.
His introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself!
On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic incident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden.
Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for six years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company.
All ten of his novels are now published by Next Chapter Publishing Company which has added an edition titled The Heirs And Descendants Collection, which holds all four books of that series, alongside an edition titled The Lies And Consequences Collection which contains all four volumes of that series.
He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed executive of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising his first novel.
He likes to write quotes and it's on Goodreads where you can find them--- https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/list/72612151 An example of these quotes opens his novel--Once I Was A Soldier:--There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.
