What is your latest release and what genre is it? The Viking’s Apprentice – Adventure story for children aged 8 and over

Quick description: Follows the summer holidays of friends Peter and George. They have an amazing adventure when they arrive at Peter’s Granddad’s house in the mysterious town of Campbell’s Cove.


Brief biography:
I was born and raised in Scotland. To be precise I was born in Hamilton in 1975. (A year my oldest daughter thinks is close to around the time Vikings invaded Britian; that’s how old her dad is.) Then when I was very young we moved to Dunblane where I spent most of my years until I was roughly 20. After some traveling around I have landed back in Hamilton with my wife Kathleen and our two amazing daughters. They do say you always go back to where it all started one day.

I have always loved writing and have written many short stories. One day I will publish these stories (re-written and tidied up of course) for everyone else to read. I knew in my heart that I wanted to write a novel and I had many ideas competing to be first out of the hat. (I have to wear a hat these days, I am bald and it gets cold in Scotland.) I did write a book, as yet untitled, but chose not to release it after I had the idea for The Viking’s Apprentice. This new idea grabbed me and I began writing. I was inspired by my daughters and especially my oldest who loves to read. I wanted to write a story they could read and enjoy sooner rather than later. A story aimed at younger readers, but that could be enjoyed by everyone.

Two years of hard work, re-writes, edits and learning about the industry came to fruition when The Viking’s Apprentice was released on Amazon on March 28th 2013 and has achieved number 1 in it’s genre in America and the UK on Amazon. Book 2, The Master’s Revenge, was released in September 2013 and also reached number 1.

What are you working on now?
I’m working on the third book in the series which has a working title of Journey to the Other Side.

Kevin’s reading recommendation:
Shutter Island by Dennis LeHane or The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King. Both very different, but both excellent.
