Danny Kemp.

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, 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.
