A new, gripping novel, searing the past to the present,
bringing generations together, taking one family apart.

Told in alternate chapters, located, mainly, in South-West Scotland, this is the intense story of modern-day Patrick, set against the compelling, dramatic life of his grandfather, John.

Patrick grew up never knowing his grandfather.
Why were they kept apart?
What secret split the family?

Patrick needs to find out, but only if he can unite with his own daughter, Sophie, first.
Driven by the desire to see her again, Patrick decides he must visit France to take Sophie away from the care of her mother, Patrick's ex-wife, Maria.
It does not go to plan.

In 1915, with the war raging in Europe, John works the family farm, not yet old enough to enlist but aware of its looming threat. He meets Catherine. It is the start of something wonderful. It is the start of something terrible... 

Now on to the interview!

Hey RR! First I want to say welcome to Two Chicks on Books I’m glad you could stop by for a chat! TWO TIDES TO TURN sounds AWESOME and I can’t wait for everyone to read it!

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about the TWO TIDES TO TURN and the characters?

Two Tides To Turn is set, mainly, in rural Scotland. Part historical drama, part psychological thriller, it is two combined stories of love and grief.

In the modern day, Patrick is desperate to unite his family and investigate his mysterious grandfather, John. And it is John’s dramatic story, starting from the time of the First World War.    

Were any of the characters in the book inspired by people from your real life?

No characters inspired the book, but the idea for the story came from my own life: I never met my grandfather. I had thought, until recently, that he’d died before I was born it wasnt the case. When I visited his grave, it was strange to discover that we had lived, for several years, a mere two miles away. I do not know why we were kept apart. In this book, I came up with a reason. A rather unpleasant one.

Who was your favorite character to write? What about your least favorite?

Truly, I enjoyed writing all of them, highlighting their many flaws. However, Catherine is the nicest person I’ve ever written.

What is your favorite passages/scenes in TWO TIDES TO TURN?

There is one in Patrick’s story and another in John’s. Each one took days to write. But, sorry, I cannot reveal much more as both are pivotal moments, and I wouldn’t want to spoil any surprises.

What kind of research did you have to do for the story?

I read a lot of old local newspapers, held in the library on microfiche, to get a sense of the rural community at the time of the First World War.

Who is your ultimate book villain?

Ernst Stavro Blofeld

What inspired you to write this book?

As I mentioned before, something similar happened to me. I never found out the reason for never meeting my grandfather. I wanted to create one for these characters.

Lightning Round Questions

What are you reading right now? Or what do you have on your TBR that you’re dying to read?

I’m going to reread His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman, to remind myself of the story, as a new TV version is coming.

What Hogwarts House would the Sorting Hat place you in?

Hufflepuff probably

Twitter or Facebook?


Favorite Superhero?

Spider-man. (I remember reading his first appearance in Britain. Wish I’d kept the comic might be worth something now.)

Favorite TV show?

Would I Lie To You? (Very funny)

Sweet or Salty?


Any Phobias?

Don’t like spiders (if that can be counted as a phobia)

Song you can’t get enough of right now?

Season’s Trees by Danger Mouse

2019 Movie you’re most looking forward to?

Are we due another Bond film? If so, that would be it.

Thanks so much RR for answering my questions! I can’t wait for everyone to read TWO TIDES TO TURN!
