This is the author page for W.J.Quinn. 


I've been intending to become a professional writer for many years, and have finally committed time to the project.

I have no fixed theme for what I write. I love literature across the spectrum from Coetzee to Coehlo; Roth to Bellow; Peter F. Hamilton to Jim Butcher; Robin Hobb to Stephen King; Sebastian Barry to Ian M.Banks. That should at least hint at the range and scale of my influences.

My only ambition is to entertain through high drama and low, and to take you, dear reader, on adventures less than common, set beneath unreal skies.
