Where the idea for ‘Cornelius’ came from.

My brother and I used to go “exploring” a lot as kids on a property much like the CorneliusCORNELIUAPRIL2016 cover - JPEG 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.

Be Aware of the NO TRESPASSING signs


Officially Released Today!

Mira and Wade head out to explore a large, abandoned house in a wooded area near their home. They are unaware that their innocent adventure would open up the bowels of history in a most uncanny way.

Soon after, an uninvited guest invades their personal space. Unsure of what to do, Mira turns to the one source that is bound to have all the answers–a rather unlikely source. Drawn into the life of one cut short by jealousy, thirteen-year-old Mira doesn’t realize that her willingness to help a mere stranger would result in a new beginning for her own family. Among the pages of ‘Cornelius’ is a love story so powerful and intriguing that will tug at the heart of anyone in a marriage/relationship that finds himself at a crossroads.

CORNELIUS is a spine-tingling tale that ties a painful history into the present day. Get ready to be chilled to the bone!!!

Today’s Wisdom Key

If anyone views himself as being totally perfect in the actual sense of the word, he is undoubtedly imperfect in God’s eyes. For the thought alone is one of presumption, impurity and imperfection. One may rightly strive for perfection pertaining to character and spirit, but must bear in mind that he will never reach its purest form within this human body. The fact that he has strived for it until the end has made him ‘perfect’ in the eyes of God.


Her eyes veered over to the door of the room she had slept in for months. Rising from the floor and feeling sicker by the moment, Solange walked over to the door. She pushed it all the way open and just stood there appraising the room. She now seriously wondered why it was decorated the way it was: The blue wall paint, the childish paintings and twin beds. It had to have been the children’s room. Only, Greg never said that he had children.

Your passion, if not ignored, will take you to your destiny.

“One of the best suspense thrillers I have ever read!!!! You are not going to want to put it down. Beautifully written! Definitely a must read.”


The mansion in the woods holds chilling secrets that have sauntered down throughout the generations. Trent Matheson, a victim of a brutal past he had absolutely nothing to do with is afraid of what lies within him. Struggling to live an ordinary life, he finds that the control he once possessed is slowly slipping away. The money, the power, the newly-found love… cannot subdue what is inherently a part of him. He is entering ‘The Season’ where he will be forced to face the essence of who he is in a fight for his very life.

Real Illusions offers a remarkable edge where two storylines are intricately intertwined. It’s as if the reader is getting two books in one. No one can guess the ending… no one.

God can do extraordinary things through ordinary people like you and me.

I would like to give my review on the book Seeing beyond the natural student me…….Professor :God by Tanya Taylor

Before reading this book I never realized that I had the mind set that I didn’t deserve God’s favour. I have said it many times and to me I felt my faith was strong but deep down there was doubt. I felt I was not Christian enough or sanctified enough to truly be blessed by God.

The name of this book truly is a message from God letting all of us know that no matter how dirty or unworthy we may feel as human beings, God loves us. He loves us in all our imperfections, in all of our mistakes, in all of our sin and iniquities. He loves us because in all of that dirt….He sees a diamond in its rarest form.

This book also tuned my eyes and mind to the evil that lurks to devour and destroy us. It has given me the tools I need to fight this evil. This book is truly a gift from God to all who are beaten and down trodden in mind and spirit.

It is a message of hope.
Look forward to the 2nd book.

This book will give you insight into the significance of miraculous supernatural events that take place in our lives more often than we think. Excellent material that will move you into another realm of wisdom and understanding regarding God’s mercy and grace. Unbelievable Read!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!, March 30, 2014
This review is from: Seeing Beyond the Natural: Student: Me… Professor: God (Kindle Edition)

This book, if I could call it a book, because I would prefer to call it a blueprint or Manual of the Supernatural, was truly riveting and insightful. I could not put it down.

It is an abiding testament of the fact that as we draw nearer to our Creator, He will draw nearer to us and show us great and mighty things.

I was amazed by how the author was able to vividly show her journey, step by step, line upon line, and precept upon precept of the depth, height and magnitude of her relationship with our Lord, and at the same time seal these revelations with the Word of God.

Some may have a difficult time grasping some events that were mentioned, but as I read through the Manual, I could feel the veracity of what was being conveyed. It caused me to take an introspective look at my walk with my Saviour and desire even more and more of Him.

Truly, this Manual would enrich your personal library and would be an asset that causes you to reflect on where you are now and where you want to be in your walk with our Creator.

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seeing Beyond the Natural by Tonya R. Taylor, March 12, 2014
By ElizMNYC – This review is from: Seeing Beyond the Natural: Student: Me … Professor: God (Paperback)

First of all, I believe beyond a natural doubt that nothing happens by chance when it comes to Spiritual things of the kingdom. I stumbled into this book while using my daughters kindle fire and VERY glad I did! The author gives a very detailed account on supernatural experiences that points and gives God ALL THE GLORY! I was consumed by the accounts shared and could not put the book down. I would have paid a lot for this book because it was heartfelt and engaging. At least 80% of this book confirmed and mirrored my life experiences to the T. I wept, smiled and raised my hands in awe being blessed by “Seeing beyond the Natural”. For those who embrace the moving of the comforter in their life, there is no words I can add to this testimony but “priceless and comforting”. This book brought a sincere joyful revival into my spirit as the Spirit touched me through this author.

This life account covers a variety of experiences that describes like minded believers who God has been close to. Expect to receive encouragement and some wisdom if you have been there and thought you were somewhat of a odd one! Well, your not alone and as I read continuously I was so emotionally drawn in that it felt it was meant to be that I crossed path with this book for such a time as this. I believe Mrs. Tanya R. Brown (Taylor) and respect her for it. Wondering if you have written more books?? If she has not “please do” the anointing was spectacular and thank you so much for putting a new spring in my heart. For those who take the things of God seriously and those curious to know get the book but you need to be open minded and not be critical because you have not experienced the move of the Spirit just “yet”. These testimonies are much needed because they empower you as long as you keep your eyes on Him giving Him All the glory!

April 19, 2014 BOOK REVIEW by June Jarrett- Penn (Facebook)

“Seeing Beyond The Natural by Tanya Taylor was a fantastic Book, certainly worth the wait for a copy. I must say this Book captured my attention from start to finish. A few years ago I read another Book written by the Author but with this Book, I can truly say she has definitely out done herself. I too have what family members and a few friends call “weird” and “strange” occurrences.

“Through reading this Book I have learnt that I am not “weird”, a “freak” or “strange”, I was made to understand that I am in alignment “with the spiritual realm in such an awesome way” and that “some people who haven’t had these experiences can’t seem to wrap their heads around it, but as a person who often experience these things I know they’re true and no one can tell me any different”.

“Thank you Mrs. Taylor. I am sure there are many persons like myself whilst reading this Book stopped in awe at some of the similarities in your life and theirs…I sure did. I just want to wish you great success and may the Lord above continue to richly bless you and your family.”
