Paranormal romance next for ASU Book Group

"The Five Deaths of Roxanne Love"
January 30, 2015

"Fifty-eight minutes before she died, Roxanne Love noticed three things: The stain on the ceiling, her brother's short fuse, and the quiet stranger who quietly entered and sat in the back."

Who was this stranger, and what did he mean to Roxanne Love?

Find out when Gilbert, Arizona author Erin Quinn discusses her book, "The Five Deaths of Roxanne Love," at the Feb. 25 meeting of the ASU Book Group, at noon in room 316 of the Durham Language and Literature Building on the Tempe campus.

The book discussion group is open to all ASU faculty, staff and students, as well as the community.

Quinn, a project manager at Intel Corp. and part-time student at ASU, writes "dark paranormal romance for the thinking reader."

Her novels, New York Times best-sellers, have been called “riveting,” “brilliantly plotted” and “beautifully written,” and have won, placed or showed in the Booksellers Best, WILLA Award for Historical fiction, the Orange Rose, Readers Crown, Golden Quill, Best Books and Award of Excellence.

In "The Five Deaths of Roxanne Love," which is Book One in Quinn's "Beyond Series," Roxanne Love’s near-death experiences have put her on the radar of a "Reaper" determined to uncover the secret of her immortality and cut it at the source.

Disguised as a human, the Reaper isn't prepared for the emotion that comes with the body. Now he finds that the woman he came to kill is the one person he’s willing to die to protect.

The book for March is “Zora Folley: The Distinguished Life and Mysterious Death of a Gentleman Boxer,” by Marshall Terrill, information specialist director with ASU Public Affairs at the ASU Downtown Phoenix campus.

This meeting, on March 25, also will be in room 316 of the Durham Language and Literature Building.

The next discussion, on April 29, will be of “In the House Upon the Dirt Between the Lake and the Woods,” by new English faculty member Matt Bell, also in room 316 of the Durham Language and Literature Building.

The May book is to be announced.
