Elliott Quinton L.L.C

Elliott Quinton L.L.C is home to the various creative endeavors birthed from life experiences and raw emotion. eloQuint finds comfort in the ability to succinctly detail thoughts from his mind to paper. The pen name was implemented by conjoining Elliott and Quinton while playing off the word eloquent and its definition, capitalizing only the "Q" attributing to his childhood nickname. Diverse encounters have shaped the content that riddles the pages of countless notebooks and documents such as Adverse Childhood Experiences,  and collegiate and professional basketball. Also, God, being a single father, Alopecia Areata, advocate for injustice, educator, entrepreneur, and more. eloQuint uses his talent to develop a platform spreading awareness as well as shedding light on matters that have personally affected him.

Quinton Elliott Marshall is the brains behind eloQuint and Elliott Quinton L.L.C, born July 24, 1993 in Rochester, NY and moving to Raleigh, NC at the age of nine.  Around that time is when he found a passion for books, falling in love with a series called Redwall by Brian Jacques which set an early tone for his favorite genre and a connoisseur of book series. He consumed Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz, Alex Cross by James Patterson, Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. Eventually evolving to series involving Mitch Rapp by Vince Flynn, Scot Harvath by Brad Thor, Jack Reacher by Lee Child, Gabriel Allon by Daniel Silva, Oliver Stone by David Baldacci, Joe Pike by Robert Crais as well as a plethora of other authors and genres reading over 20 books every summer.

The way the authors scripted the characters and entranced their readers portraying a picture filled with words forcing readers to keep flipping the page. This inspired Q to become an author himself, wanting to be able to outline the book in a way he saw fit. He unsuccessfully tried to write two books as a young teenager underestimating his talent and not fully understanding the preparation it takes. Dedicated to the game of basketball, getting a scholarship was Q's focus. As a child playing in multiple leagues and putting in the work to make it to the next level.

After attending Leesville Road High School in Raleigh, NC he then went on to play at a Prep school called Charis Prep in Wilson, NC. There is where he obtained a full ride scholarship from The Citadel Military College of South Carolina graduating in 2016 and playing a short tenure professionally in Germany and the Netherlands that same year.

Also in 2016, was the birth of his first blessing Amelia Janelle. The situation surrounding the matter has been less than ideal and has caused a lot of pain and emotions, Q, needed an outlet and resulted to writing poetry early 2017. Finding love in expression he picked up the pen and scratched the pad, which is the inception of eloQuint and the many platforms that followed. After having another daughter, Amara Noelle, in 2019 with the stress of dealing with the first mother mixed with another child and failed basketball dreams caused Q to develop Alopecia Areata losing hair in his beard first then on his head. 

What started out as therapeutic poetry rekindled a childhood dream of becoming an author. From poetry, to short stories, to books, podcast, YouTube, and now blogging Q has found his second act in life as eloQuint. He also has a passion for the youth and their development, currently, he is a Middle School Special Ed Teacher and Girl's Head Basketball Coach during the year and Summer Camp Director and AAU basketball coach over the summer as well as individual basketball skill training year round. His hobbies include music (jazz, rap, gospel), reading, chess, running, open mics, live music events, ping pong, festivals, art galleries, traveling, and playing paintball.
