He lives in the city formerly known as Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Writing is the dragon that lives underneath my floorboards. The one I incessantly feed for fear it may turn and devour my ass. Writing is the friend who doesn't return my phone calls; the itch I'm unable to scratch; a dinner invitation from a cannibal; el

It was the year 3015 and Earth was besieged by aliens. Despite the best efforts of the I.I.C. (Intergalactic Immigration Control) they still bored through the anti-matter shield surrounding the planet like giant termites gnawing through an old header beam. From every corner of the cosmos they came -- though mostly from a tiny planet orbiting a dying sun some 100,000,000,000,000 light years away... Read more of this blog post »

“Personally, I think we should remove the word "shooting" from the vernacular. It's an ugly, biased word that somehow creates the assumption that a gun was involved. Let's go with 'Interpersonal Ballistic Event' (IBE).”

“If you're gonna burn a bridge behind you, make sure you've crossed it first.”

“I want an avowed atheist in the White House. When time comes to push that button, I want whoever's making the decision to understand that once it's pushed, it's over. Finito. They're not gonna have lunch with Jesus. Won't be deflowering 72 virgins on the great shag carpet of eternity, or reincarnated as a cow. I want someone making that decision who believes life on this Earth isn't just a dress rehearsal for something better -- but the only shot we get.”

“Seemed like a good idea on paper.”
Tirumalai S. Srivatsan

“This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.”
Walt Whitman

message 6: by Bill

Bill Hi Quentin,

Interesting career you've had. And out of Wall Street just in time. I'll check out Horse Latitudes.
Take a look at mine: The Feathery...on Amazon.



message 4: by Maria

Maria Hi Quinn, thanks for your comment on my profile page and the birthday wishes :)
I agree that novels should be well written, and that is one thing that makes them great, but I also think that where there is a great story it would also be fantastic for that novel to be adapted for the screen so that people who enjoy watching a movie rather than reading a book could enjoy it as well.


message 3: by Maria

Maria Hi Quinn,
Hope you're having a great day


Quentin Absolutely Maria! It's a wonderful book by an outstanding writer! I'm looking forward to writing my review and recommend it to EVERYONE on Goodreads!
