Danny Kemp.

I hide my nightmares far and deep, where no-one; not even I can reach.

I chase my dreams as far as they go, never wanting them to slow.

Heartache is a different thing, no place to hide the pain. So deep and grim.

Love hurts so much, but can be healed with a simple touch. A hug, a kiss, an act so pure that it cannot be dismissed, as part of what we say and do to please the person that is not you.

Easy to receive yet hard to give, if you are the way that can’t forgive.

Love kills they say and passion ignites, but what my friend snuffs out that flame that once started…….always will remain?

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.

    Hi Danny Good luck with your new venture. I have written several books now and had to self publish some. It seems to me that there is an audience, there is a market, but publishers are wary of taking chances. Understandable I know but very frustrating too. Might I suggest that with your vast experiences that maybe talks to different groups may be the way forward. We have speakers at our club who do that and sell their books at the same time. I have also done it so know it works.
    Anyway whatever you decide. Good luck and think positive.
    May Park
