The secret life of a blogger

Why Do You Blog?

Jina S. Bazzar

Ever since I began blogging, I feel like I’m living two separate lives:

The one where I’m an ordinary woman with disability, raising three kids, who enjoys writing and reading.

The other is where I meet new people every day, discuss my book, my life, things I enjoyed reading, and participate in other people’s conversations.

The people in my ordinary life don’t know about the people in my other life, about the things I write about, the books I enjoy discussing – because they don’t bother to check my blog. They do know about the book I’m getting ready to publish, but they think it’s a phase I’m going through.

I don’t mean to portray a bad impression of them, no, they are caring, considerate people, but each have a life, and they don’t share my addiction to writing and reading.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp is a seventy-four-year-old member of The Society of Authors. He is also a bestselling writer. He writes stories that appeal to those who like challenging themselves to solve mysteries that are set out before their eyes. His 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 incident 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 six years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All ten of his novels are now published by Next Chapter Publishing Company which has added an edition titled The Heirs And Descendants Collection, which holds all four books of that series, alongside an edition titled The Lies And Consequences Collection which contains all four volumes of that series. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed executive 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 his first novel. He likes to write quotes and it's on Goodreads where you can find them--- An example of these quotes opens his novel--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. Less
