EL CARRO

An agricultural treasure.

El carro me recuerda a mi padre. Me contaba, que su segundo trabajo era el de transportar mercancía a Madrid, y lo hacía con su carro tirado por mulas. El carro es un emblema de lo que ha sido el trabajo agrícola durante años, en las familias del campo. Todo se hacía con esfuerzo, a pie, con la fuerza de los animales. El carro es un ídolo, un dios, en ese  altar de los recuerdos del pueblo. Los perros, las mulas, los bueyes, tantos animales, que hoy ya no tienen la importancia que tenían en mi infancia… Quiero hacer honor también a la rueda prehistórica, el invento matriz de nuestra historia. Sin ella nada de lo que vivimos hoy hubiera sido posible. Gracias a ese impulso de la rueda y el carro y las mulas y los caballos y los bueyes… Así nacieron las rutas, los caminos reales, la caminería…

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.
