Thank you for visiting.
I grew up in South London, spent a couple of years in L.A. and then a decade in New York, where I ran around excitably, saying a few well-chosen words in various feature films and TV shows (see Those New York ’Nineties), modelling in a few places and drinking deep in many more places. I’m now living back in Dalston, East London, with my boyfriend, as an Imagination Thief.
In the five tales presented here, which are literary fiction with a touch of magical realism and a dusting of horror, I aim to push imagination and language towards their extremes, so as to celebrate the beauty, darkness and mirth of this predicament called life, where we seem to have been dropped without sufficient consultation ahead of time. They may be read in any order.
The novel The Imagination Thief was published by EC1 Digital and the Firsty Group in 2013, as an ebook that includes film and audio and photographic content in conjunction with the novel’s text. It was then published by EC1 Digital as a paperback in 2014. See http://www.rohanquine.com/press-media/the-imagination-thief-reviews-media/ for interviews and some nice reviews in The Guardian and elsewhere.
The four novellas—The Platinum Raven, The Host in the Attic, Apricot Eyes and Hallucination in Hong Kong—were published by EC1 Digital in 2014, as four separate ebooks and collected into one paperback entitled The Platinum Raven and other novellas. See http://www.rohanquine.com/press-media/the-novellas-reviews-media/ for reviews and interviews relating to these four.
Links to all retailers, for purchase of The Imagination Thief and the four novellas in paperback and ebook formats, are here.
The next novel will be The Beasts of Electra Drive, now barrelling down the pipeline.
