Hitting The Target

Autographed photo - William Tell - thumbOn camera again today is Aiming True author, Conrad Phillips, describing his life and the events which took him from being a serviceman in World War II to playing the lead role in a prime-time television series. He tells of his many ups and downs, his disastrous first marriage, the William Tell filming injury that prematurely put paid to his acting career, and of the many fascinating characters whom he met along the way.

Conrad also speaks about the time with his second wife Jennie and, in particular, the period during which they bought, restored and ran a tumbledown Scottish hill farm – all on a shoestring. Despite great hardships, they overcome whatever life has to throw at them and come out the other side with an even stronger and closer relationship.

The heart-warming prequel to Skeoch

This is the account of the author’s eventful and entertaining life up until the momentous decision to move to Scotland recounted in ‘Skeoch’.

The sole survivor of twins, she is brought up in a house haunted by a large Alsatian dog, and works her way through various interesting and madcap jobs which are gradually more and more connected to the world of stage and films and lead her inevitably towards her first encounter with her future husband, Conrad Phillips, lead actor of the series ‘William Tell’.

Theirs is a whirlwind romance culminating in marriage after only 10 weeks. For part of the honeymoon, the groom asks the bride to choose between an extra night in a luxury hotel, or a night in his boat and a non-stick frying pan – she chooses the latter!

An amazing tale of triumph over adversity

The author, her actor husband Conrad and their small daughter Kate leave London for a new life in South West Scotland. Although they know nothing about farming, they have bought Skeoch Farm, and they are determined to make it viable.

But nothing is easy. The farm is large and run down, and establishing by trial and error what crops and animals are best suited is the steepest of learning curves. While spirits are willing, the flesh is still used to the comforts of city living, and exhaustion, due both to physical work on the farm and arduous commuting to fulfill acting commitments in England, takes its toll.

The beauty of the place and the humour of the situations shine through. After a second daughter has been born, one day the two children are discovered leaving home Dick-Whittington-fashion to ‘live with the fairies’ who according to their lore live in a wood at the foot of the property. Their parents realise with a jolt how much the relentless work has made them neglect other areas of their lives.

This is an honest, gritty and at times tragic account of a pioneering lifestyle in which mistakes are fully and freely acknowledged. It is also a well-constructed, entertaining and often funny story which seizes the imagination on the first page and continues to hold it until the very end.
