“I am here to tell you what a wonderful time we had at our annual Library Open House in October 2011.

Guest Author, Darlene Quinn captivated our audience of 325 patrons with a conversation from her heart . Sharing a little about her life and a lot about how and why she started writing her page turning “Webs of Power” trilogy. She was accompanied by her handsome husband Jack!. He also contributed by supplying us with wonderful earring that he made from the picture on her book jacket. The first 25 guests received a pair. Just last week one of our patrons came to our Library counter wearing the earrings. We here at the Braille Institute Library will never forget Darlene’s kindness and passion she showed for writing.

We salute you and all that you do!”

A 3-Minute Introduction To Darlene Quinn

“A while ago, Darlene Quinn spoke to the St. Mary’s Medical Center Guild about her books and we really enjoyed having her there.  It would be interesting and entertaining for most any group to invite Darlene to speak to them.  We are glad we did and hope to have her back to tell us about her newest release.”
