A Random thought is creative. A Chaotic thought can lead to creativity. Danny Kemp.



Random asked of Chaos, “is there a way you could define the difference between us two? Perhaps you could tell a story, and in that way make it interesting too!”

“There was a time,” said Chaos “when I reigned supreme. I held the upper hand in most things. Well, at least in people’s minds I mean.

I preached the gospel of nothingness, but order everywhere. A religion of a kind, without thoughts of any care. 

Nothing had a value, no security left in wealth. My teachings touched everyone, affecting their mental health.

The financial world was in ruins. Neither the Church nor politicians had a solution to the chaos I presented. The rules were simple: think nothing of others and all of your self!

You see that in chaos there is an order, one small change following another until all follow the rules I invented. There is confusion, a turmoil perhaps but it’s controlled, whereas randomness has no order, no method of attack. It springs from nowhere, it’s haphazard, it’s erratic. There is nothing it presents, on which one can fall back. It is unique, its strength lies in the isolation of its own will!

Random, you saved the world, when I was just underway. I almost had it all. I almost won the day.

Someone had a random thought, one of wisdom and goodwill. The world did have value. There were principles and morals; still.

Credit was abandoned, a worth given to everything in sight. There was advantage in living a slower life, where greed was not the answer, benevolence was freed.

If people believed less in the rules of Chaos and allowed more of Random into their soul, then life maybe better lived and in so doing; achieving a better goal!”

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.
