I am still waiting to read “Of Mutts And Men”! Why? This is not just a ‘book’ to read and fiction at that, but these events in the life of Chet and Bernie comes alive and gets into our heart and soul! All the titles in this series have meaning that goes beyond description! Mr. Quinn did you plan it that way?

Me: Good question, Margo! Assuming by “titles” you mean the individual books in the series, my goal is to write an entertaining story. But in the writing of that story, deeper things start to happen, almost like there’s a current flowing under me. After a while I cotton on! And begin to make conscious use of the subterranean meaning. But never in a way – I hope – that would slow the story down. Hope this helps – Peter.


Story Idea?

“How about,” says Admin, “a story about an email that gets caught in a spam trap and is desperate to get out?”

“You’re proposing,” says Spence, “to write a story from the point of view of an email?”


“Didn’t sleep well last night?”

“And he can feel his electrons slowly deteriorating inside him – literally making him meaningless!”

“Your email is a he?”

“Very much so.”

“It’s not too late to go back to bed.”
