Quinn claims to have always loved history and has said this about why........Too often we grow up thinking history is boring, dull, nothing but flat lists of dates and places. In my books I hope to show the life, the laughter, and the humanity that runs through our common past.
She lives in Maryland with her husband and two dogs.......and has never lost her love of opera, but has added action movies, cooking and the Boston Red Sox.
