THE DESOLATE GARDEN…Would you like a preview before the FILM?
“Not being a big fan of twisted thrillers, it was with some misgivings that I fired up my kindle app to begin reading The Desolate Garden. After reading the opening line I was hooked.
“The first time I saw her was three days after I was told that my father had died.“

The attraction between Judith Meadows from the Home Office and Lord Harry plays with the give and take of a rubber band throughout the book, pushing and pulling at each other’s emotions, meanwhile there is a murderer to be found and a spy to be flushed out. The story is twisted with fascinating snippets of international intrigue and crises but what I enjoyed most was Kemp’s wonderful use of words. I didn’t just read the story I felt it.

About Danny Kemp

I was at work one sunny November day in 2006, stopped at a red traffic light when a van, driven incompetently, smashed into me. I was taken to St Thomas' Hospital and kept in for a while, but it was not only the physical injuries that I suffered from; it was also mental ones. I had lost confidence in myself let alone those around me. The experts said that I had post-traumatic stress disorder, which I thought only the military or emergency personnel suffered from. On good days, I attempted to go to work, sometimes I even made it through Blackwell Tunnel only to hear, or see, something that made me jump out of my skin and that's when the anxiety attacks would start. I told my wife that I was okay and going regularly, but I wasn't. I could not cope with life and thought about ending it. Somehow or other with the help of my wife and medical professionals, I managed to survive and ever so slowly rebuild my self-esteem. It took almost four years to fully recover, but it was during those dark depressive days that I began to write. My very first story, Look Both Ways, Then Look Behind, found a literary agent but not a publisher. He told me that I had a talent, raw, but nevertheless, it was there. His advice was to write another story and that I'm delighted to say, I did. The success of that debut novel, The Desolate Garden, was down to sheer hard work, luck, and of course, meeting a film producer.
