More a Boast Than a Blog.


I had lunch today (22 May 2014) with the CEO of the London Film Production Company in charge of turning The Desolate Garden into a film.

I have been paid by them, for the third consecutive year, for the intellectual rights/powers to my novel. In other words, they have a further twelve month option..

It could be started and finished inside the next two years!…….As an aside; he paid for lunch…..WHOOPEE!

The Desolate Garden.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
