Quinn's first published novel, Sizzling Cold Case, published in January of 2007, was a somewhat unusual collaboration as well as labor of love for her dear friend, Buddy Ebsen. His work-in-progress was a Barnaby Jones novel, which at his widow's request, Quinn was thrilled to complete.
As part of a seven-member management team for the Bullocks Wilshire Specialty Department Stores (West Coast Divisions of the former Federated Department Store conglomerate~now Macy's Inc.) Quinn became interested in storytelling at an early age but did not begin writing until her adult life. With an insider's perspective on the rise and fall of major department stores, she now writes what she likes to read, which is page turning suspense, based on actual events. Her goal is never to allow the facts to get in the way of a good story.
Prior to being an author and speaker, Quinn was a teacher in the public school system, a self-improvement and modeling instructor, a private contractor
for department stores (Bullock's/Robinson's) and hospitals.
She has two children, John and Jodie, six wonderful grandchildren, and lives with her fantastic husband and greatest supporter, Jack, in Long Beach and Big Bear, California.
