This novel was inspired through reader requests and is the prequel to the series. Book trailers can be viewed and first chapters read on my website darlenequinn.net. All novels stand-alone and can be read in any order. However, if you are hooked on starting at the chronological beginning of a series, that would be Webs of Fate, which is set in the mid-eighties before our status symbol became: "How much did you save?"

Conflicting Webs, the fifth novel in the stand-alone Web Series.
Darlene is currently working on Severed Webs.

As part of a nine-member management team for the Bullocks Wilshire Specialty Department Stores (West Coast Division of the former Federated Department Store conglomerate ~ now Macy's Inc.) With an insider's perspective on the rise and fall of major department stores, she now writes what she likes to read, which is page-turning-suspense, based on actual events while never allowing the facts to get in the way of a good story.

Prior to being an author and speaker, Quinn was a teacher in the public school system, a self-improvement and modeling instructor, a private contractor for the city, department stores (Bullock's/Robinson's), and hospitals.

She has two children, John and Jodie, six wonderful grandchildren, and lives with her husband and greatest supporter, Jack, in Long Beach and Big Bear, California.
