Q&A with local author Tina Seskis

One Step too Far

One Step too FarWhat are you reading right now?

The Hunger Games with my son – having thought I would hate it I think it’s brilliant.


How did you get into writing?

During a particularly self-indulgent period between freelance contracts I signed up for acting classes at Jacksons Lane, yoga and writing classes at Lauderdale House, I played tennis, joined a choir, learned Italian, you get the picture.  The writing class was the absolute highlight of my week.


Who do you follow religiously on Twitter?

My friends, I find out SOOO much about them.


Who is the most influential person in your life?

My husband, for making me a nicer person than I used to be.


Which book do you wish you had written?

My third one, I’m stuck on it, or failing that The Complete Works of Shakespeare.


Does God exist?

I think there’s something that makes the world the largely miraculous place it is, don’t ask me what.


We’re at the bar. What are you drinking?

Half a lager, a tonic water or a glass of cheap white wine.


Who would you dread getting stuck in a lift with?

One of those really competitive mums.


What did you want to be when you grew up?

I had no idea, which was always a bit of a problem.
What song will you have played at your funeral?

Time to say goodbye by Andrea Bocelli (I have the funeral all planned, which my family finds weird, but I like things to be done nicely).


What book are you promoting at the moment?

Well, One Step Too Far is currently on sale in local bookshops or on Amazon – it’s currently in the Top 10 for literary fiction, but who knows where it’ll be by the time you read this!
