Like many authors, Peter Gibbons always wanted to be an author from the time he was a child. However, other things would take much of his time and he never wrote anything for decades.

Still, Gibbons attained a lot of success in his day job as he rose through the ranks to lead global sales for a large insurance company.

Coupled with the fact that he was married with children he did not have much free time to write. However, he came to realize that he could no longer blame his job and family when he made time for the Dublin Marathon.

Whether it was a picture book of ancient Norse legends and myths or Greek warriors and then on to the likes of Bernard Cornwell, David Gemel, and Tolkien.
This would continue right into his adult years as he dreamed of one day penning a novel himself just like most book lovers do.

He initially tried publishing his novel through a traditional publisher but this proved so difficult and time-consuming until he decided to go with Kindle Direct Publishing.
Once he understood the working of the platform and how easy it was to publish, he was published in no time and has never looked back.
He is now a huge advocate of publishing through KDP which he loves to promote to aspiring authors.

    A little bit disappointed there were no historical notes at the end Axes for Valhalla. Was the Queen of Dublin an historical figure? I enjoyed the book. Thanks
