Author Kevin McLeodabout this book: I chose to write The Viking's Apprentice as I wanted something my daughters could read when they were slightly older. My inspiration was for them to read something their dad had written.

The Viking's Apprentice is for 8+ although so far it has been enjoyed by all ages.

The story is set in the summer holidays of school friends Peter and George, and the amazing adventure that awaits them in Campbell's Cove the home town of Peter's Granddad.

Granddad is a great story teller and tells many stories of the Viking warrior who came to the Cove centuries before to fight dragons and claim the prize of the Elders.

With many unique characters and some fast paced action the book has received high praise on Amazon with every review on .com and being 5 stars.

The Viking's Apprentice has also been taken on by schools in Scotland as the reading book for the primary 5 to 7 children (ages 9 to 12).

Juggling the book with family life and my day job it took two years to complete. I undertook a lot of research about Vikings, the language they spoke and their modes of transport. I also researched old Scottish fairy tales and used a variation of one of these in my story.

I am lucky that my brother is a graphic artist and he was able to do my cover for me. I actually posed for the two Viking poses on the cover.. So now you know!
