#Poetryreadathon – Meet author, poet and blogger Victoria Zigler

I loved this and hope you do too.

Robbie's inspiration

Poetry readathon

Today I am delighted to introduce you to author, poet and blogger, Victoria Zigler. Victoria, known as Tori to her friends, is an author of a number of lovely children’s books, some of which I have read and really enjoyed. She has also published some lovely poetry books.

Over to Tori

I was excited to be a part of Robbie’s poetry readathon.  But this presented me with a bit of a conundrum.

You see, picking a favourite of my poems is hard for me.  Actually, I’m not very good at picking favourites of things in general, but I find it even more difficult with my own work, because each piece is special to me in some way.  So I made it a little easier on myself by focussing on one particular poetry collection: Mr. Pumpkin-Head And Other Poems.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp’s 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 accident 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 five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All seven of his novels are now published by Creativia with the seventh—The Widow’s Son, completing a three book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? and Once I Was A Soldier. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was 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 most about; 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 and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee 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 that first novel of his. He continues to write novels, poetry and the occasional quote; this one is taken from the beginning of 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.
