NEW!!! A FOUR BOOK COLLECTION IN THIS BESTSELLING SERIES FOR A DISCOUNTED PRICE! The Cornelius Saga Series Box Set (Books 1 – 4): Exciting Ghost Stories & Haunted House Collection
“Author Tanya R. Taylor never disappoints!”– Amazon customer.
Escape to the exciting world of the Cullen family where there are very few “ordinary” days. Adventures, mysteries, ghosts, witches, artifacts, missing corpses are familiar territory. Watch Mira evolve from a curious teenager to a respected doctor, and her daughter Rosie, from an endearing six-year-old to a mature teenager. They share an amazing gift some people may love to have and others quietly thank their lucky stars that they don’t.
Once you meet the Cullens, however, they become dear to your heart and you’d want to go on every adventure they will ever have. A sure classic.
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.
“A must read… I lived the characters and the storyline made you believe in true love!!!!” – Amazon customer
“Okay, I hope you’re happy now,” Deed said to the ghost that stood next to him. “I told him the whole deal; now do you mind just going away for a while and giving me some extra room to breathe?”
They were both standing in the doorway watching as Trent reversed out of the yard.
“He won’t listen,” Peter said solemnly.
“Well, that’s just too bad. Ain’t it?” Deed gave him an irritated look. “Not my problem, buddy. Remember… I’m just the messenger.”
He turned around only to find Peter directly in front of him. “He loves her too much,” Peter said, his eyes so dull and lifeless—the looks of which made Deed want to take a drink.
“So what does that have to do with me?” Deed probed. “What’re you saying anyway? He loves her too much. What? What?”
Peter’s gaze was piercing. “You must warn him,” he said before vanishing into thin air.
Deed shook his head. “That guy’s determined to be a needle in my butt. The more you do for these blasted ghosts the more they want from you! Hell with it!” He slammed the front door.

This just can’t be happening, Trent thought. That Deed Grumbley guy must be out of his mind! Yet, deep inside Trent knew better—the guy had spoken with such veracity that only a fool would choose to ignore what had stared him right in the face. As he pulled into the parking lot of the hospital, the fact that Deed basically confirmed everything Tina had been telling him all the while weighed heavily on Trent. She was in a place he knew she didn’t belong and he had put her through so much emotional pain that he was certain she would never forgive him.
He picked up the single rose he had purchased at a stop light on his way there and walked into the building toward Palenski’s office.
“Come right in!” Palenski was standing at his desk. “When my secretary said you were here, I knew I couldn’t have you waiting as you’re a very busy man, Mister Matheson.”
Trent took a seat. He hadn’t recalled seeing Palenski that upbeat before and wondered if his partial consumption of the cup of coffee on his desk was responsible.
“Is that for me?” Palenski asked, eyeing the rose.
“I think not,” Trent replied, obviously in no mood for meaningless chatter and definitely not for jokes.
Palenski sat down. “Can I offer you some coffee or tea?”
“No thanks, Doc. I’m just here to see Tina and to find out how she’s progressing.”
“Well, the good news is that we might have pin-pointed the appropriate medication for her. She’s responding very well to it and after a little more observation, I would be able to revert to you. If she continues to do well, she will be back home with you and your baby in short order. However, the key is to ensure that she takes her medication precisely as prescribed because we don’t want any distressing episodes to arise as before. You know what I mean.”
“I do,” Trent affirmed.
“Well, I don’t want to keep you any longer than necessary, so I’ll walk with you to her room. We can chat on the way.”
WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE AT BARNES & NOBLE, APPLE, KOBO & OTHER ONLINE RETAILERS. SCHEDULED RELEASE DATE: AUG. 30, 2015.
The hooded, faceless figures were said to have astral projected — mere humans in their most powerful form. They will stop at nothing to get the child, their leader, and Matheson must face the unnerving consequence of his unwillingness to hand it over to them.
The foot soldiers are daunting, nonetheless, and tragic events that mimic a dark past begin to bathe the city. Would one child be worth all of the chaos — one telepathically gifted… unusual child?

Her blood-curdling scream permeated the air. The woods behind the mansion was eerily quiet and paid no attention to her desperate cry for help. Tina Sheffield was staring at the thing that had just slid out of her — still attached to the other end of the umbilical cord. She wanted to get up and run out of there as fast as her legs could take her, but her physical connection to the one that shared her DNA prevented her from being able to do so. Furthermore, blood and a watery substance had settled beneath her and between them, and she wished she had a pair of scissors, a knife or any sharp tool to cut the fleshy cord and separate herself forever from the newborn with the beaming, green eyes and grotesquely distorted face. She was hyper-ventilating and felt that she was about to lose all sense of consciousness when she heard a dangling of keys near the front door, then the door opening and shutting again.
