Boundaries on maps, are like boundaries in our mind.

How do you picture a tree, has it a trunk, branches and leaves? If yes, then it is the same tree that I visualize, but no two trees are the same.

We are like that. None being identical to any other. Yet we are hypocrites, and deny and resent that fact.

We decry individuality in any and ever walk of life. Preferring to bracket people into bundles that we feel easier to deal with, but we celebrate our own individuality by existing in a space all of our own and showcasing our thoughts and beliefs. Feeling free to speak out in defense of that freedom, but only if we are white, heterosexual and come from the right side of the globe, and perish the thought, do not flirt with controversy.

If you are one of the less fortunate, and not one of them, then those that are, will help you out of your mess by trying to convert you, and lead you down the path to a more conventual life, thereby ensuring the perpetuation of mediocrity.

Whether you believe in a ‘big-bang’ theory or in a world created by God, the one thing they both have in common is that individuality. A uniqueness, shared by no-one; or no thing. The trouble is, that if we show our differences, or speak out against inequality, we are disliked and in some cases; hated.

Why is that?

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.
