A Comment About The Desolate Garden.


 People are all different. Some are kind in their comments, and others the opposite. But there’s a third type; those that go that step further with their warm-heartedness and compassion.

This is from Diann Polchinski. I hope she doesn’t mind me reposting it.

“Danny, I got your book on kindle for my dad. He read it twice and was so hoping to see it as a movie. Sadly he died almost two months ago. In the 8 years he lived with us he read over 300 books. Yours was one of the few he read twice and one of the very few he gave top marks to. So, when the movie is made, I will go to see it for him. Ok, for me to, lol. I thank you for giving my dad hours of great reading and please know, he hoped you would write more and never give up on seeing it make the big screen.”

It knocked me over!

About Danny Kemp

I was at work one sunny November day in 2006, stopped at a red traffic light when a van, driven incompetently, smashed into me. I was taken to St Thomas' Hospital and kept in for a while, but it was not only the physical injuries that I suffered from; it was also mental ones. I had lost confidence in myself let alone those around me. The experts said that I had post-traumatic stress disorder, which I thought only the military or emergency personnel suffered from. On good days, I attempted to go to work, sometimes I even made it through Blackwell Tunnel only to hear, or see, something that made me jump out of my skin and that's when the anxiety attacks would start. I told my wife that I was okay and going regularly, but I wasn't. I could not cope with life and thought about ending it. Somehow or other with the help of my wife and medical professionals, I managed to survive and ever so slowly rebuild my self-esteem. It took almost four years to fully recover, but it was during those dark depressive days that I began to write. My very first story, Look Both Ways, Then Look Behind, found a literary agent but not a publisher. He told me that I had a talent, raw, but nevertheless, it was there. His advice was to write another story and that I'm delighted to say, I did. The success of that debut novel, The Desolate Garden, was down to sheer hard work, luck, and of course, meeting a film producer.
