The Devil Met A Writer.


The Devil Met A Writer.

If the Devil sits at your table,

Be careful on what he feeds.

Give him nothing to satiate his appetite,

Give him nothing of what he needs.

Keep your mind closed to his suggestions.

Take heed of not one single word.

Keep your own thoughts well hidden,

Say nothing that can be overheard.

Fight hard against temptation,

Put no foot inside his den

Your conviction must come from your heart

Or nothing will then flow from your pen.

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.
