Hello, and welcome to my author page! My name is Darrell Gibbs, and I’m excited to share my journey with you.
I spent 29 years in the Canadian Armed Forces, progressing through the ranks and retiring after a long and loyal service. During my time in the CAF, I had the opportunity to work as a chef, which took me to various places around the globe with deployments in the Army, Air Force, and Navy. It was a challenging and exciting experience, and I’m proud to have served my country.
After retiring from the military, I enrolled in the Computer Support Technician Program at Sir Sanford Fleming College in 2004. I found the course studies to be educationally enlightening and received a diploma, as well as a permanent place on the President’s Honour Roll in 2005.
In addition to my education and military career, I have a passion for writing and genealogy, and also leather working creating handcrafted carved wallets. I have written three genealogy resource eBooks that are great tools for beginner family tree historians, which are available on Amazon: “22 Steps in Researching Your Family Tree (New Genealogists),” “38 Family Tree Research Resources (For Canadians),” and “New Leaves (A Worldwide Resource with Over 1500 Links).”
I also collaborated on a book called “Tormented by Ghosts – True Life Experiences” with author Lynda Bogert. It is a fascinating read about Lynda’s personal experiences with the paranormal over a thirty-year period.
Currently, I’m working on two fictional novels called “Lightbringr” a SciFi adventure, and “Wessex Reign,” which is a fictional chronicle of an Anglo-Saxon king’s supremacy for England. It follows the lost written records of an unheralded king who should be regally honoured with respect. I’m excited about these projects and look forward to sharing more about them as they progress.
When I’m not writing or researching, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have three grown children and five grandchildren, and they bring me endless joy. I also enjoy reading, gardening, and being outdoors.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little better. I hope you enjoy my work, and I look forward to connecting with you soon.
