HOME TRUTHS on sale

Hi, I thought you might like to know that my latest book, Home Truths, is currently on sale on Amazon, for the whole month of March. It is a slow-burn mystery that, to my knowledge, no-one has yet guessed...

Home Truths is a hard book to describe, but I do like this Goodreads reviewer's attempt:

"I am not giving anything away about this psychological thriller except to say it is brilliantly done, c Read more of this blog post »

“When they finally leave me alone I find that I'm beyond feeling, beyond caring, I'm in a place deep in my mind that feels safe and warm, where nothing can go wrong, because it already has, every last thing that can.”
Tina Seskis, One Step Too Far

“It was the scale, the extremity of things here that made an impression on her: the two beds in their double room that could comfortably sleep three people each; the throaty clunking of the machine down the corridor that ejected fat glinting ice cubes, tumbling like coins from a jackpotting fruit machine; the toothache temperature of the Cokes from the mini bar (she had never known drinks to be so cold); the improbable proportions of the cars on the freeway; the sleek gleefulness of the morning TV presenters with drawls so sassy they sounded put on; the enormity of the breakfasts and the people who ate them. America seemed souped-up to JoAnne, as though it had to be bigger, better, colder, hotter, cheerier, louder, just all-round “er” than everywhere else.”
Tina Seskis, A Serpentine Affair

“Nought to one hundred. That was her. She had taken this ship of a marriage, the one that had steamed along innocuously for years and years, and had just rammed it into one hell of an iceberg.”
Tina Seskis, Home Truths

“Go for broke. Always try and do too much. Dispense with safety nets. Take a deep breath before you begin talking. Aim for the stars. Keep grinning. Be bloody-minded. Argue with the world. And never forget that writing is as close as we get to keeping a hold on the thousand and one things--childhood, certainties, cities, doubts, dreams, instants, phrases, parents, loves--that go on slipping , like sand, through our fingers.”
Salman Rushdie, Imaginary Homelands: Essays and Criticism 1981-1991

“The past is never where you think you left it.”
Katherine Anne Porter

“For you, I was a chapter. For me, you were the book.”
Tom McNeal

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan

“It was the scale, the extremity of things here that made an impression on her: the two beds in their double room that could comfortably sleep three people each; the throaty clunking of the machine down the corridor that ejected fat glinting ice cubes, tumbling like coins from a jackpotting fruit machine; the toothache temperature of the Cokes from the mini bar (she had never known drinks to be so cold); the improbable proportions of the cars on the freeway; the sleek gleefulness of the morning TV presenters with drawls so sassy they sounded put on; the enormity of the breakfasts and the people who ate them. America seemed souped-up to JoAnne, as though it had to be bigger, better, colder, hotter, cheerier, louder, just all-round “er” than everywhere else.”
