What would you do if you discovered nothing was as you thought, and the fate of your friends, perhaps even the world was in your hands?
That’s the reality Peter must face in this award-winning middle Grade adventure, The Viking’s Apprentice.
Campbell’s Cove is a small town surrounded in mystery and intrigue. The history of the Cove tells us of dragons, trolls, goblins and the evil Master who stole children, livestock and, strangest of all, eggs from the Cove every year. Aided by the hideous monster, Tolldruck there seemed no stopping their evil plan.
That was until, centuries ago, a Viking warrior came to Campbell’s Cove and vowed to rid it of all evil, and claim the prize offered by the mysterious church elders. The Viking succeeded and everything returned to normal. The evil was gone, and Campbell’s Cove was safe again… Until now.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As a father of two young daughters I wanted to write something for them to read that would hopefully inspire them to go on to be avid readers, and, perhaps even writers one day.
The inspiration for the setting of my book comes from the beautiful country I live in, Scotland.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The children and adults in my book are based loosely on real people. Peter and George and are me and my best friend back in school. Peter's granddad is actually based on my gran. Even the dog, Jake, is based on my own Jack Russell, Meg. The 'baddies' in the book come from some quiet corner of my imagination.
