Quentin Carter is a 30-year-old native of Kansas City, Missouri. Currently, Quentin is serving a 10 year sentence in federal prison under the harsh crack cocaine law.

Each of Quentin's titles, Hoodwinked, In Cahootz, Contagious and Amongst Thieves have topped bestseller lists. Stained Cotton is Quentin's fifth novel with Triple Crown, and perhaps the most highly anticipated. In the future, Quentin hopes to grow as an author and become a writer of multiple genres.
