Danny Kemp.

Where the secret stays locked within, not for want of a teller but for want of an understanding ear.

My first novel was published on 19 March and is available at Waterstone’s, Barnes&Noble and all the Amazon sites. THE DESOLATE GARDEN; a spy murder mystery. I have this as a promotion on Face Book. I am a London Licensed Taxi Driver.

I intend to do something that I think is original now that my book The Desolate Garden has been published. There is a grammatical error still in there and it concerns that variant of the English language; the apostrophe. I have left one out! For the first person drawn at random who provides proof of purchase and, after reading the novel, finds that error to which I refer, I offer me!  I will surrender myself to them acting as their chauffeur or tour guide for the full duration of my working day. During daylight hours I will meet them at their London hotel, station or airport and drive them into and around the Capital for a full six hours. There is an added bonus, the Cab seats five people and luggage, so don’t be diffident of adding friends or family to this offer. I will be at that winners disposal for all that time and I might even buy the ‘TEA’ but that’s all you get. You can’t have access to my Harrods account! LOL. To oversee all this and to ensure fairness, an adjudicator has volunteered to whom I will lodge the page and line number where this humiliating omission can be found. She is a highly respected honest and trustworthy person whom some of you already know. There may of course be other mistakes, but the winner will be decided on that specific one which I shall notify her of.

If the winner decides that an alternative would suit them better, then I will donate £100 to The Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital. I will post the address that all emails should be addressed to later, but in three-month from the date it was published, which I believe will be the 23 June, the draw from those emails will be made and the winner notified immediately. This offer is open-ended and provided God allows me to be at your disposal, can be taken at your convenience. Not too bad an offer is it and all for the price of a good story: £7.99p.


About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp’s 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 accident 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 five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All seven of his novels are now published by Creativia with the seventh—The Widow’s Son, completing a three book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? and Once I Was A Soldier. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada, and Australia.  Although it's true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee 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 that first novel of his. He continues to write novels, poetry and the occasional quote; this one is taken from the beginning of 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.
