Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
I am delighted to share author RR Gall’s answers to my questions today! Read on to discover more about his inspiration, writing and his book, Two Tides to Turn.
Where did you get the inspiration for the book/series? Not sure how it works. Usually when I’m out walking, an idea will pop into my head. It seems to happen more often when I’m beside water.
What is your writing process? Write new stuff in the morning. Edit in the afternoon.
Do you write using pen and paper or on a computer? Computer
Who is your favourite character out of your stories and why? Catherine in Two Tides To Turn. She is strong-willed, adventurous and decent.
If you were a character in your story, which would you like to be? Probably Donald. He is the main character’s friend. He seems to have fun.
How and why did you choose the names for your main characters? Nearly all my characters are just ordinary folk. The heroes are not hunks with chiselled jaws. So I tend to opt for ordinary names.
Thank you for answering my questions!
Read on to discover more about ‘Two Tides to Turn’ and RR Gall…..
A family ripped asunder.
A terrible secret lurks in a thrilling novel of love, grief, and mystery.
Patrick thought his grandfather, John, died before he was born.
In later life, he finds out that it wasn’t true. For the first five years of Patrick’s life, they stayed in the same small village.
So why were they kept apart?
Patrick wishes to search the past to find the reason – but only if he can be united with his young daughter first.
And that means bringing her home to Scotland.
It means journeying to France to take her away from the care of her mother, Patrick’s ex-wife.
In 1915, with the war raging in Europe, John is a young man working on the family farm. Not yet old enough to enlist but aware of its looming threat, he meets Catherine. But his attempts at courtship end suddenly when an accident rips his life apart.
Told in alternate chapters, set, mainly, in South-West Scotland, this is the dramatic story of Patrick, interwoven with John’s traumatic life.
