Gibbs – The Early Years – a short story

Kyle Gibbs the Early years

The short story

With the long journey of writing the Kyle Gibbs series and the publishing of my first novel came many ideas and plot lines that never made it past the editors cut. I had always wanted to write a short story, so I figured it a good idea to delve into the main character of my series.

Celt starts with Kyle Gibbs, being a serving member of the SAS and develops from there as he journeys through the changing dystopian world. I was personally always intrigued by his childhood that got him to that period.

Part of the process of writing my novels is that once I have the basic outline of what I want the story to convey, I then do my character bio or CV.  I do this to help get a better understanding of the characters. It makes it easier when I need to slip into his or her shoes (viewpoint).

I wanted to share a particularly tough period in Kyle Gibbs’s life, and so, “Gibbs – the early years” came about. I guess it can also be called a prequel to Celt, although the storylines are different. As with all my books, there is a dedicated page that will have all the online stores listed.

The Blurb


After countless beatings at the hands of his alcoholic father, Kyle Gibbs had a decision to make. Suck it up and deal with the challenges life was forcing him to endure, or run away and forge a new life.

Could the fourteen-year-old continue to cope with the ongoing violence in his life, or would he simply become a casualty of it in the end? Would he fulfil his dream of getting away from the small fishing village of Stonehaven, Scotland, to finally have a normal life?
