“Indy Quillen offers a captivating read with an engaging protagonist. There are twists and turns aplenty in TRACKER, a book that is both action-filled and didactic.”

Alan Russell Bestselling author of Burning Man

Indy Quillen’s done it again! Pursuit will keep readers turning the page through the twists and double-twists of this Rubic’s Cube of a story. Compelling and complex. Just the way we like our thrillers.

Judy Reeves author, A Writer’s Book of Days and Wild Women, Wild Voices

“Indy Quillen knows that a man is measured in the depth of his character. When she puts her naturalistic and noble Native American tracker Fox Walker on the trail, one may be certain he will not lead his readers astray.”

Dale Amidei author of series fiction in Jon’s Trilogy, Sean’s File, and Boone’s File

Indy ContactBeing outside in nature is the most basic part of who I am. Besides gaining knowledge about wildlife, I learn lessons about who I am, and constantly surprise myself with what I am capable of achieving. This love of the out-of-doors also means I’m a self-reliance enthusiast. Knowing I have the skills and knowledge to cope with emergencies or natural disasters gives me a peace of mind. I may never need those skills – but it’s nice to have them all the same. It’s no surprise that my characters exhibit many of these same traits—or learn them along the way.

Nature continually inspires me. It is a part of all my writings, no matter the genre or subject matter.  As I venture into this brave new world of publishing, I sense new adventures and more ways to learn self–reliance. I hope you’ll stick around to see what happens and share your experiences as well.
