A New Beginning, by Danny Kemp


In these days of winter, when the frost lays thick and fast,

Does your mind drift unto memories that happened in your past?

Were they ones of happiness, did they make you glad?

Or are there lingering ones that bring memories of being sad?

As the year draws to an end, and a new one grows ever near,

Hold close those dearest memories keeping them strong and ever clear.

Cast away the demons that held you back from being you,

Then 2015 will be an ever better year for your memories to travel through!

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.
