My name is Darrell Gibbs.
A little about how I got here and where I am going?
I am extremely excited about getting my career started as a writer. I am the father of three grown children and five grandchildren. During my spare time I enjoy reading, writing, researching my family tree, love the outdoors and gardening.
I was in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) from 1974 – 2003 progressing through the ranks and retiring after 29 years of loyal service. My cooking career was exciting and challenging, taking me to various places with deployments around the globe with the Army, Air Force and the Navy. It was a lot of fun and something I am really proud of doing while serving my country.
In 2004 attended Sir Sanford Fleming College enrolling in the Computer Support Technician Program. I had a thirst for knowledge and found the course studies educationally enlightening. I received a diploma and a permanent place on the ‘President’s Honour Roll 2005’, something I am very proud of achieving.
Collaborated in writing a book called “Tormented by Ghosts – True Life Experiences” written by Lynda Bogert. The book is about Lynda’s personal experiences with the paranormal and what she endured over a thirty year period.
I am the author of 3 genealogy resource ebooks which are great tools for beginner family tree historians. All three books available on Amazon:
- 22 Steps in Researching Your Family Tree (New Genealogists)
- 38 Family Tree Research Resources (For Canadians)
- New Leaves (A Worldwide Resource with Over 1500 Links)
Currently I am writing a novel called “Wessex Reign”, fictional chronicle of an Anglo-Saxon King’s supremacy for England. The lost written records of an unheralded king who should be regally honoured with respect. More to follow on the progress of the book…
My newfound passion for the past 10 years is genealogy. I like helping others in their family tree research. Genealogy is very addictive in which it is like solving a large jigsaw puzzle. Solving the puzzle could take years and even decades but it is a relaxing and self rewarding past-time.
