My love of books and reading started at a very young age while growing up in East Haven, CT. As an adult, it wasn't long before I became a working mom of five. Little time was afforded me to read, let alone trying my hand at writing. Husband, Bruce, and I have been married for 49 wonderful years. For over 10 years we enjoyed living on our ocean going sloop, 'Takaroa II' moored in the Sacramento Delta. We enjoyed many cruises sailing along the scenic Calif coastline. Now, we live in the high mountains of Utah, Cache Valley. We're retired and I am now making time to fulfill my dream of writing novels. Bruce is very supportive of my goal, and believe it or not, our dogs support me, too!

"Loved Reading This Well-Written Suspense"

This is a great story and the first book I've read by this author. It's a real page-turner of action and adventures I never expected. Highly enjoyed it and will be looking forward to reading book 2.

This action-packed novel, the first of a new series, is very different from Becker's previous novels. It has some quirky people, often making mistakes. It is humorous, but I haven't been captivated. There's espi

Nancy Silk Hi Marsha,

I voted for your book. I definitely have to read it as my husband and I are both Main Street snoops from our dining room window. One house we labeled as a safe house, and then found out it was a drug house. Binoculars are our weapon of snoopdom! When is your book available?

Marsha Cornelius Hi Nancy,
You reviewed my book Losing It All a couple years ago. I wanted to touch base because my sixth novel will be released soon. (And although Losing made you sad, I'm hoping my new book will have you laughing out loud.)
The book, ‘Gladys and the Porn House’ is currently entered in the Kindle Scout program. I hope you’ll find a moment to visit their website, have a look at the short excerpt, and if you like it, please nominate it.
kindlescout.amazon.com/p/1OBQESTCUYAFD
If the book is accepted, you’ll get a FREE Kindle copy.

Thanks so much for your continued support.

Warm regards,
Marsha Cornelius
