The View From The Cab.

The view from the cab
One year at our village fête, my wife and I won at a raffle, an enormous toy stuffed Gorilla. (I put the ‘Toy’ there just in case anyone thought that it may have been some fellow-villagers’ donation as Gorilla’s were common place in Kent.) The following day I put this beast in the front of my Cab, alongside me, where normally Luggage would be carried, with the intention of delivering it to our granddaughter that evening. As people got out of the Cab, at their journeys end to pay me at that near-side open window, I lifted him up and said…”Pay the BOSS!” I got a great many laughs that day even from those who would normally be more intent with their phone conversations than me.

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.
