Marsha R Cornelius

After working for fifteen years as a cafeteria manager in an elementary school, Marsha Cornelius turned in her non-skid shoes for a bathrobe and slippers. She now works at home, writing novels, acting out scenes with her cats, and occasionally running a Swiffer across dusty surfaces.

Like thousands of others, she thought she could write romance, but soon discovered she was a dismal failure. She did increase her repertoire of adjectives such as throbbing, pulsing, thrumming, vibrating, hammering, pumping . . .

Her debut novel, H10N1, a thriller about a flu pandemic gone awry, received 5 stars from Midwest Book Review.

The Ups and Downs of Being Dead, a story about a man who chooses to have his body cryonically-frozen rather than face death, received the Awesome Indie Award.

The AIA medallion was also awarded to her third novel, Losing It All, a drama that follows a homeless man as he helps a mother and her two small children get off the streets. Losing It All also received the BRAG Medallion, and her second 5-star rating from Midwest Book Review.

Habits Kick Back, her latest novel, tells the story of a college girl who decides to kick her drug habit, only it isn’t what you think. She wants to stop taking all the pills that control her weight, help her concentrate, keep her awake to study, improve her mood, and even suppress her sexual appetite.

Originally from Indiana, Cornelius lives in the countryside north of Atlanta with her husband and two molly-coddled cats who refuse to wear socks and dust the furniture.
