Dance And I’ll Smile, by Danny Kemp.


For my granddaughter, fifty years my junior. I write this three days before my sixty-fifth birthday.

Dance your way through life. Then from afar I’ll watch, smiling and laughing at your triumphs and elation.

When you stumble but then rise again as if nothing has happened, I’ll wear a grin so huge that through the very darkest of days a ray of my hope will light the path before you.

Never lose sight of your dreams, nor let anyone rob you of them.

If you listen to unwise words and walk timidly through your life, then my tears should flood your heart whilst I drown in sorrow!

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 in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became 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 best; 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, 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 in the UK.
