Quinn shares the story of her business. “Wise Bear was conceived from my love for books and technology.

The Wise Bear family of websites represent the new paradigm in digital publishing which is the perfect fusion of words, technology, and media.”
About her book, Invisible Snow
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.
