For those of you that don’t know me I would like to introduce myself and ask for your support. I’m at the beginning of what I hope to be a new career, a writer. My second ever book is now at the printers awaiting its turn to become tangible. I started this journey as a result of a Road Traffic Accident that effectively put me out of paid work for three and a bit years, I wrote to fill that void in my life. I had a dream, and as I’m often saying here on F/B or Twitter..”I’m following that dream and there are no rules in dreams.” However, my drive and ambition has now lead me to a point that is alien to me: An American interacting live radio show with a subscribed audience of 80.000 listeners! I’m a Londoner and proud to be. I have no English ‘plum’ in my mouth and I’m conscious of that fact, I’m nervous that I wont be well received. I’m aware that this is a ‘virtual world’ in which we all communicate with each other but, I would greatly appreciate your support albeit that it will be ‘virtual.’
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.
