Quentin was born in the UK and spent his youth surrounded by the pleasant countryside of Middle England in Oxfordshire. After serving time in the Royal Air Force, he took on several jobs as a contract engineer allowing him to travel extensively across Eastern and Western Europe and parts of Africa. In the early 70's, Quentin headed for Dubai and for the next 25 years worked in the oil and gas, well drilling and construction equipment industries to become part of the extraordinary evolution of a particularly extraordinary place. During this period opportunities arose for travel to Asia, the Far East and United States in search of new business and some much needed further education. After returning to the UK in the late 90's, still restless, Quentin decided to spend some 'writing time' in Spain, a decision that has served him well with the completion and publishing of over half a million words to the beginning of 2018. Producing work in a wide variety of genre including Techno & Erotic Thrillers, Action & Adventure, Historical Fiction, Biographies and Satirical Fiction, Quentin is an experimenter with words and presentation, as well as being a full time writer.
Having spent a fortunate life engaged in world travel, Quentin feels the only sensible finale for such unbridled adventure is to write about it. An addicted novelist, he tends to write from experience, characterize people he has truly known and weave story lines around real events of the time. Quentin considers the stories he writes to be narratives that matter and is not afraid to approach difficult subjects, especially ones that accurately reflect the reality of a particular period. If you enjoy erotic thrillers with an historical twist; fictional characters intertwined with real events and storylines that will keep you turning the page, then perhaps you will find something in his writing that is particularly for you.

Quentin Cope 2018
'The Arabian' is a full length erotic thriller set in New York and the Middle East in the 1970's published by Little French Media on May 18th, 2018. This is what CEO Marco Diaz of LFM had to say about this exciting new project:
'I find The Arabian absolutely brilliant ... from the very first chapter wells an urge to read more ... and to achieve this effect on a reader is remarkable - not many writers pull it off'
Beware of a woman with a broken heart …!
Scarlett Gleeson is a tough 28 year old cookie, ambitious, sexually confident and determined to leave her unhappy past well and truly behind in Black Oak, Indiana The only remaining link for Scarlett is a snapshot photograph showing two young girls standing in a park.
Scarlett undergoes a dramatic transformation when she hits New York and emerges as Leonora Carrington-Jones working at the salubrious Carlisle hotel, a place synonymous with wealth and power, working for beauty salon owner Madame Durand.
It’s 1976 and Leonora has a vision of her being a hair stylist to the stars and lover to one or two British lords or realistically, their more athletically suitable sons.
Hareb bin Aziz al Hareb, a Saudi Prince is a man of considerable substance and the sparks of a passionate love affair are kindled. His stay in New York is for business and once he returns to the Middle East a love-sick but confident Leonora agrees to meet him in Dubai.
But reality and fantasy are poles apart as a disillusioned Leonora becomes enmeshed in a poisonous web of deceit, lies and sexual abuse. How can real love turn so sour, so quickly, transforming dreams of love to ones of morbid despair?
Ironically salvation appears in the form of Susan who comes to the aid of a mentally battered, bruised, and disenchanted Leonora, someone fighting for her life, even for her survival in an alien world where females are powerless and exploited purely for the pleasures of men.
Being a long way from home, almost friendless, alone and isolated has made Leonora easy prey. But some women are made of stronger mettle and can look danger in the face without flinching, seeking retribution without suffering the pangs of guilt. Some women consider that justice means ‘an eye for an eye’ … and if necessary, ‘a life for a life!’
But what about the fading black and white snapshot in a battered, well travelled tin frame resting at Scarlett’s bedside in her New York apartment? Amidst the pages of this highly erotic thriller relating a tale of love, sexual adventure and eventual despair, Scarlett’s sister fits in there somewhere … and that's something you'll have to work out for yourself.
