If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?

I’d go to the past to experience a time without processed foods, pollution, and simpler way of life, but then I’d want to go to the future to experience advancements in health, energy, and technology . . . unless, of course, Skynet has taken over.
What is one book everyone should read?

Their washing machine manual (seriously) and Atlas Shrugged . . . but not necessarily in that order.
If you could have any superpower what would you choose?

My family does have a superpower already!  We have an uncanny ability to beat crowds at most restaurants, movie theaters, theme parks, parking spots, or anywhere else crowds of people roam.  We always marvel how lucky we are when large lines form behind us, but I’ve decided it’s not luck . . . it’s our secret family superpower . . . I hope I haven’t jinxed it.
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Haagen Daz Vanilla Swiss Almond

I make a special concoction of oatmeal, flax, sesame, and chia seeds, mixed with goat yogurt, berries and a little pure maple syrup for just a touch of sweetness . . . Yum!
Night owl, or early bird?

Pet Peeves?

Hair on soap and dirty bathrooms . . . Yuck!

My crappy childhood.
What’s one piece of advice you would give aspiring authors?

Michael Crichton once wrote on his website . . . stop asking questions and just write . . . so I did.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?

Where ever I am as long as it’s with my family . . . and we can keep our family superpower.

Can you see yourself in any of your characters?

What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you?

It’s a toss up between . . . be kind . . . or . . . kick ass and take names.

Invisible Snow by Quinn Barrett

Invisible Snow is a classic family drama about wealth, power, greed, and redemption. Marriage is a delicate dance of power between lovers, but Kate and Paul Delacroix are strangers caught in a disparate union somewhere between betrayal and truth. Confronting their true selves for the first time results in an epic clash of wills where only one will prevail. The legacy of the family business is at stake, but power is not always about money. Their showdown results in a shocking twist of fate—a destiny Kate never saw coming.
First-time novelist Quinn Barrett takes readers on a riveting journey about personal empowerment and self-realization. She explores conventional perceptions about families and the illusions we attach to them. This complex family drama challenges us to consider the personal choices we make and why we make them.
