AGAINST THE TIDE is initially set in and around the swimming pool but quickly becomes an adventure as the main characters discover…
I've drawn on my skills of teaching dramatic improvisation for thirty-nine years to establish the characters then given them almost a free rein to tell their own story. Like me, I hope you will be just as surprised by some of the outcomes!
I hasten to point out that this is a work of fiction and all the characters are creations of my imagination and not representations of real people. While I might share some of Jack Renouf’s experiences in swimming and water polo, he is of my mother’s generation. He is not my alter ego!
Between you and me, he is far more interesting though I would not want to have experienced even ten percent of what he created for himself in this series through controlling my fingers on the keyboard.
Since I wrote this for the launch of AGAINST THE TIDE, three more novels featuring Jack Renouf have been published, THE LAST BOAT, DIAMONDS FOR THE WOLF, and IRISH LASS. The fifth, AMERICA FIRST will be published early in 2021.
