Bahamian author readies to release next two books in her Cornelius Saga Series

In a quiet New Providence suburb, Bahamian author Tanya R. Taylor churns out her popular fiction. It is not unusual for her to produce several thousand words in one day, while juggling home and family. She has a busy husband as well as a teenage son, and a daughter preparing for college.

On February 28, Taylor will release the sixth book in her “Cornelius Saga” series “The Lost Children of Atlantis” (which is her 19th book, not counting some non-fiction).

The author describes “The Lost Children of Atlantis” as “an alluring tale and, for some, an unfathomable mystery.”

When Tanya was a little girl growing up in Sea Breeze, she and her older brother Dwayne used to explore a large old derelict house set on a vast piece of land with fruit trees throughout the grounds.

“I loved going on that property, picking mangoes and dillies, and just surveying it from time to time,” said Taylor. Wondering why such a house was left abandoned is where the idea began for what would turn out to be an Amazon bestseller — “Cornelius”, the first in the “Cornelius Saga” series.

After “Cornelius” came Book 2 “Cornelius’ Revenge”, then Book 3 “CARA”, Book 4 “We See No Evil” and Book 5 “The Contract: Murder in The Bahamas”. Each book in the series can stand alone, but the same endearing characters appear throughout with additional ones introducing exciting elements in the plots.

In “The Lost Children of Atlantis”, currently available on pre-order at a special price, Mira Cullen, an attractive young doctor and psychic, meets old, sick, occasionally delusional Stefanie Brussels. Stefanie claims to know otherwise unheard-of facts as related to the shocking catastrophe of long ago where so many had perished, but no one in their right mind believes her. She also mentions an artifact in her possession that holds “special powers”.  Could these be the ramblings of a nutcase or could this seemingly far-fetched story about “lost children” actually be true? Will Mira take anything she says seriously — and if she doesn’t, what is bound to be the outcome?

Taylor has had several #1 bestsellers on as well as the Amazon UK store and Amazon Canada. She is the author of both fiction and non-fiction literature, and all of her books have made Amazon Kindle’s Top 100 Paid Bestsellers List in several categories. She writes in various genres — paranormal romance, fantasy, thrillers, science fiction, mystery and suspense.

She likes to keep her readers and fans informed and recently sent out a newsletter with a delightful surprise for them — yet another book — the seventh in the Cornelius Saga Series, “Death of an Angel” will be released April 28 and is also now available for pre-order at a special price.

In her newsletter, Taylor said she would not continue the series if people were not still showing interest in it.

“If you’re not a fan of Mira and Little Rosie Cullen yet, you don’t know what you’re missing! Don’t take my word for it. Read the reviews starting with my number one bestseller ‘Cornelius’. In this latest riveting instalment will a member of the Cullen family stare death right in the face? A devastating accident on the highway; a ripple effect of calamity … Mira and Rosie Cullen are no strangers to the elements of the paranormal — some terrifying and some not so much. But in this episode of the Cornelius Saga, one of them will see the face of an entity none of us — dead or alive — wishes we would ever see!”
