My Books - N. J. Lindquist

The Circle of Friends Series

An engaging coming-of-age series that blends humour, adventure, and romance with a search for the meaning of life.

Herbie Kuhn

In-house voice of the Toronto Raptors

I meet with a lot of teens and speak to a lot of youth groups. I see the things they go through in N.J.’s novels.... I kept thinking, How is she going to be able to top this book? But she did; each book got better and better.

A Second Chance Novel

Like Gary Cooper in High Noon or a gunfighter in a Louis L'Amour western, 18-year-old tough guy Shane Donahue wants out of the life he's been living. When someone suggests he should try God, he just laughs. But then he realizes he has nothing left to lose. 

Armand LaBarge 

Former York Region Police Chief 

N. J. Lindquist was presented with a plaque and a “Deeds Speak” certificate from then York Region Police Chief Armand P. LaBarge for her “contribution to facilitating positive change within the community” and “assisting youth in dealing with issues like anger, fear, and peer pressure” through the book.

​True Stories & Articles

N. J. has written columns, personal experience stories, and articles, some of which she has put into a couple of books. She's also working on a memoir. And she sometimes speaks, telling her stories.

Paul Manziuk and his new partner, Jacqueline Ryan, make an odd team—he's white, an abrupt, patronizing veteran, while she's a recently promoted, vivacious black woman—but... the two rub elbows and tempers to effect.
