The One That Didn’t Escape

For a lie to add piquancy to a story the story would be factual. Fantasy needs no lie to stimulate or excite. But if the factual story is contrived or fallacious then it’s the fantasy that is the lie.

The Story That Had No Beginning (my very latest) now has its end and has been locked away awaiting the call from my publisher.

I shouldn’t have favourites. My books are my family. To a large extent, they define me, my values, my philosophy and what I hold dear. This last one I have been wanting to write ever since The Desolate Garden was published in 2012, but for thousands of reasons I never wrote it until now. It’s not a large book. Somewhere in between a novella and a novel, however, I think it carries the biggest message of anything I’m capable of writing.

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.
