My brother and I used to go “exploring” a lot as kids on a property much like the Cornelius plantation mentioned in my book, Cornelius. That’s where I got the idea for the book from and waited many years before getting around to writing it. The property was large and overgrown with trees and tall bushes, and somewhere in the middle sat this large, two-storey house that had long been abandoned. There were broken windows, missing doors, chipped paint, and the place held an air to it that made me wonder who used to live there and why it had been abandoned. I never found out the real story about that house, but a fictional one soon took form inside my mind.
I’m very happy that I wrote Cornelius when I did (although decades after first getting the idea) as the story seemed to touch that special spot in people’s hearts even though it’s a spooky, paranormal tale. Many have gone on to read the sequel, Revenge of Cornelius, which was released in December 2015.
As I know people are wondering, I am now ready to reveal that there will certainly be more upcoming books added to the Cornelius saga (each one a stand-alone). Initially, they will be focused on little six-year-old Rosie and her mother, Mira — the surviving members of the Cullen family with that very “special gift”. If you’d like to be notified of new releases, you can sign up on the new releases page indicated at the top of this screen.
Revenge of Cornelius is currently on a countdown deal at Amazon, so if you haven’t read it as yet, you’d might as well grab it now. Hope you enjoy.
