Laura Quinn Releases PUNK CHARMINGby BWW News Desk - Nov 10, 2015
Chicago Author Announces Release of Travel Romance Novel 'Punk Charming'
A Mixtape of Spiked Hair, an Elusive Heir and Spiteful Snares
Chicago-area author Laura Quinn announces her debut novel 'Punk Charming.' Published by Eternal Press (an imprint of Caliburn Press), 'Punk Charming' is a travel romance novel. The book is now available in paperback format (via Lulu), and will be released as an e-Book and to other book sellers soon. ISBN # 978-1-32-965795-3
An avid traveler, Quinn infuses her international experiences into her novels. She celebrates writing as the silver lining of life, allowing her to transform vexing experiences into fresh story ideas. Although a fictional novel, 'Punk Charming' owes its creation to a couple of kerfuffles Quinn navigated while traveling to and from England.
Set in several locations, including England, France, Spain and the Chicago area, 'Punk Charming' opens in the totally awesome decade of the 1980s. Pop culture of the 80s adds its neon glow to the backdrop, transporting readers to the decadent days before smartphones, WiFi and a Starbucks on every corner. As the story progresses through the Age of the Internet, the star-crossed lovers find themselves facing just as many obstacles to connection.
Punk Charming Summary: American Kate Spenser escapes peril in Paris, enjoys a respite in Madrid and meets handsome Brit James Barrington during the journey to London. The two experience a whirlwind romance, but a series of mis-cues and deliberate sabotage by a fellow Oxford student scuttles their chance of a reunion. The ensuing years will prove the constancy of true love, or won't they?
Punk Charming Back Cover Blurb: '1986 - Shoulder pads are big, hair is bigger, and American college student Kate Spenser is set to embark on the biggest adventure of her life. Having been accepted to a summer study-abroad program in Oxford, England, Kate travels to Europe for the first time.
The eighteen-year-old is psyched about a summer of exploring countries on her own, experiencing new cultures, and perhaps meeting a charming young man along the way. Armed with a French-English dictionary and her Walkman loaded with Duran Duran, Kate is ready to start her adventure in France. Little does she know what awaits her when she arrives, and how she must use her wits to escape peril in Paris. Fortune favors Kate when she meets her Punk Charming, and it's love at first sight. Now, if she could only find him again.
James Barrington meets his soul mate while on the run from Paris. Mis-cues and sabotage prevent him from reuniting with Kate, but he can never forget her. If only he had told her the truth before it was too late. Or is it? Can true love conquer all?'
Quinn is passionate about writing and traveling, and is happiest when combining the two. She has lived in the Chicago area all of her life, an undergraduate student at DePaul University and a graduate student at Northwestern University and the University of Chicago. Quinn attended British Poetry and British Literature courses at Oriel College, during a summer study-abroad program at Oxford University. She is well-trained, and often outsmarted, by her beloved dog and cats. A former user of pay phones, paper maps and VHS players, she now embraces technology...and is a Pinterest addict with over 26,000 pins. Quinn is a forever fan of Duran Duran (30+ years and counting), from Walkman to iPod. In addition to writing her next two novels (a sequel to Punk Charming and a new mystery series), Quinn teaches creative writing at local colleges and is a writing coach for private clients. Laura welcomes visitors to her website at LauraQuinnBooks.com or email at LauraQuinnBooks@yahoo.com.
Quinn is available for interviews and appearances. For booking presentations, media appearances, interviews, and/or book-signings contact Publicist Shaun at 224-256-0174 or via e-mail at email@example.com. (more...)
