Hi, and thanks for visiting. I'm an author of literary fiction with a touch of magical realism and a dusting of horror. I grew up in South London, spent a couple of years in L.A. and then a decade in New York, where I ran around excitably, saying a few well-chosen words in various feature films such as "Zoolander" and TV shows such as "Oz "(see www.rohanquine.com/those-new-york-nineties/film-tv).
I'm now living back in East London, as an Imagination Thief, with my boyfriend and a caramel-coloured rabbit. In addition to its paperback format, my novel THE IMAGINATION THIEF is available as an ebook that contains links to film and audio and photographic content in conjunction with the text. See www.rohanquine.com/press-media/the-imagination-thief-reviews-media for some nice reviews in "The Guardian", "Bookmuse", "indieBerlin" and elsewhere.
Four novellas - THE PLATINUM RAVEN, THE HOST IN THE ATTIC, APRICOT EYES and HALLUCINATION IN HONG KONG - are published as separate ebooks, and also as a single paperback THE PLATINUM RAVEN AND OTHER NOVELLAS. See www.rohanquine.com/press-media/the-novellas-reviews-media for reviews of these novellas, including by Iris Murdoch, James Purdy, "Lambda Book Report" and "New York Press".
My new novel THE BEASTS OF ELECTRA DRIVE (a Finalist in the IAN Book of the Year Awards 2018) is a prequel to the above five tales, and a great place to start. See www.rohanquine.com/press-media/the-beasts-of-electra-drive-reviews-media for reviews by "Kirkus", "Bookmuse", "Bending the Bookshelf" and others.
All six tales aim to push imagination and language towards their extremes, so as to celebrate the beauty, darkness and mirth of this predicament called life, where we seem to have been dropped without sufficient consultation ahead of time.
