The view from The Cab.

As an alternative to that informative sign seen of the back of an increasing numbers of Lorries today; that of..’If You Can’t See My Mirrors Then I Can’t See You!’ May I humbly offer these as a suggestion: ‘If I Do Not Indicate Before Making a Turn, It’s Because I don’t Care!’ OR: If All You Can See Filling Your Rear View Mirror Are The Stone Chip Marks On The Front Of This Vehicle. Then It’s Because I Could Not Give a Stuff If You Have To Brake In An Emergency. You’ll Die And I’ll Probably Walk Away! If you are a Lorry Driver and disassociate yourself for both those practices, then please don’t take these complaints of mine to heart. They are NOT addressed to those who once were known, rightly, as Knights Of The Road, but I’m sorry to say that honor no longer can be applied to all of your vocation.

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.

One Response to The view from The Cab.

  1. After writing my first novel, “Mobley’s Law, A Mobley Meadows Novel,” I found myself being treated very differently than before. An author is universally admired and I wondered why. To me, it is no different than any other form of work, but there is a difference. Many very intelligent people grow up wanting to write a book, but somehow never do. They allow their fears to get in the way. They worry about doing research, of embarrassing themselves, paying for editorial services, etc.
    So, when they meet a genuine author with published works, they go a little gaga. It can be very embarrassing at times, especially when some hot chick hits on you right in front of your wife. It’s amazing how bizarre people can become.

    Anyway, Mr. Cab Driver, ex-Cop, etc., you have accomplished something few other people can claim. You’ve written books and have had a lifetime of experience to base your work upon. Congratulations from an old cop turned lawyer and now a writer. I just love the endorphins produced during the writing process, and I believe I could become addicted to it.
