Danny Kemp.

I started this journey to become a published writer with bright hopes and great ambition. I followed advice of an agent and an editor, but I never sought help from a technically minded computer expert. That should have been my first consideration. It is not enough just to be able tell a story well, you must be able to understand all aspects of the digital world and be able to set your work out in such a way that printers working with computers can understand that hyphens on the end of a sentence should not be there. Blank pages are because the line justification has caused their blankness and not you, for comments to be left and made. I have just spent all weekend, sleeping for less than ten hours during that time, trying to comprehend why my work is so desecrated and writing a report on that. I wish that I had never started in that wish to change my normal life.

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.
