More About the Author

I was born in England, raised in Canada and now divide my time between Michigan and Florida. I started writing seriously more than ten years ago. My first published novel, Tiger Paw, won the 2012 Best Thriller Award from the Florida Writers Association. My newest work, the two-part novel, DragonFly ventures into the realm of dieselpunk, a retro-futuristic collision of science fiction and fantasy with overtones of alternative history.

Regardless of what genre I'm writing in, I aim to provide a unique perspective in my fiction, layering hidden meaning inside the protagonist's journey. My debut thriller, Tiger Paw blends action and intrigue with psychological suspense, and asks the questions, how far will someone go to sell his soul to the Devil? And what if the Devil seeks revenge?

My new dieselpunk series, DragonFly explores the incredibly turbulent times during the 1940s and the 'what ifs' that might have been for a generation burdened by the ravages of war. DragonFly follows the journey of Veronica Somerset as she battles the odds to become Britain's first female fighter pilot. DragonFly is not just a novel, it is a whole new world of fantastic technology, dangerous fighting machines and wizards battling across the boundary between good and evil.

I would love to spend more time in Florida and much more time writing, and maybe in the near future, I will get the chance to do both. In the meantime, I live in Michigan with my wife, my rock musician son, and a cat. Most of the time, the cat wonders what the hell is going on as we lead such busy lives. I must write about that some day. From the cat's point of view, of course.

At times, Tiger Paw was hard to put down; it had me wondering what was going to happen next. At other times I found myself skimming over pages of what I can only call "filler". This would be a five-star book if 50-60 pages were edited out or otherwise shortened.

The story is solid, the writing is excellent, but it suffers from bloat. I am not sure if the author was trying to make the book a certain length or whether he got lost in his own story, but in my opinion if this book had some of the fluff removed it would be more than a good book -- it would be a great book.

I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who likes:

a)Crime Novels
b)Political thrillers
c)Action-packed adventure stories

Since I got Tiger Paw as a free e-book, I have to thank the author for a very entertaining read. My comments about some of the pages in this book that could have been edited out without affecting the story, the characters, or the twisting plot, are my opinion. It's not the first book I've read where I've skimmed page after page because the book started descending into word overkill.

It's a thriller, it's engrossing (most of the time) and it's worth reading. The ending is a surprise and the author dangles little carrots in front of you all the way, but never gives the ending away until the final few pages of the book.

If you're looking for a book to take your mind off your worries, this book will catapult you into a whole other world - sometimes seedy, sometimes disgusting, sometimes off-the-wall, but mostly always entertaining.

A spell binding thriller involving the dirty side of Wall Street, a serial murderer, mysterious cults and international intrigue. The book provides an interesting insight into stock scams and the corrupt and powerful people who try to manipulate the market for their own greed. Their demise by a revengeful, evil and unknown terror evokes chilling fear if little sympathy. The hunt for the killer by the FBI agent/hero, Scott Forrester has one anxious if not apprehensive to turn each page. The author's talented use of imagery and suspense hooks you from the beginning and makes it a hard book to put down. A thoroughly enjoyable read with a surprise ending. Looking forward to more from Charles Cornell.

Format: Paperback
One million people, a flash mob, have shown up for Occupy Wall Street, efectively shutting down everything from Central Park all the way to Wall Street. One million angry people.
Wall street's biggest and "most high" brokers hide in their towers of glass and steel, fearing bodily harm or even death if they venture out.
The "Roar" of "We are the 99%, Too Big to Fail, Too Big to Ignore" reverberated through Wall Street. It was going to take National Guard troops to disperse this mob, born of frustration and desperation.
FBI Special Agent Scott Forrester is sitting in the Big Sky Bar at Denver Airport watching the National Guard enter New York City on TV. After a four hour delay due to heavy snowfall, Scott's flight to Washington D.C. would be available soon.
Scott's partner, Trish, calls from NYC, the mob in the background so loud he can't quite make out what she is saying. Something about a vintage 1955 Mercedes Gullwing Coupe, a million dollar car, found sitting on top of a garbage barge in the harbor. His orders are clear, forget Washington, catch the FBI jet to East Hampton and a police cruiser will take him where he needs to go.
Scott's ride drops him off at Carleton Mansion, home of billionaire Matthew Carleton. His first thought is "The person who had this built, made one helluva bargain."
It looks like Matthew's bill has come due. He was killed slowly, with his own sin. Left at the crime scene is a message written in a language no one recognized and beside it, a bloody paw print.
Another signature murder. Scott has been chasing this killer for over 6 months, from California to Florida, then Wyoming, and now New York.
His biggest questions are, what is the message and why kill these people?

Remember the name, "Charles A. Cornell". You will be hearing it for many years to come. Tiger Paw is filled with gut-churning suspense, incredible believability, and enough twists and turns to give you motion sickness. I received my e-copy of Tiger Paw from an author giveaway (contest), specifically to read and review, so I am delighted to be able to give it an honest 5 Star rating. I am retired, and have read -- on average -- more than 1 book per day for the past several years. I can honestly say Tiger Paw is one of the top 2 or 3 books I've read during that time. One of the highlights of the book is that while you are reading it, in the back of your mind you are thinking, "Man, this stuff could really happen!" Then, after a whole-body shiver, you remind yourself it's only fiction. But, still.... My near future will be spent in seeking other works by Charles Cornell. NOBODY could write a book this good and just be a one-hit wonder! Pick up a copy for yourself, and see if you don't agree.

Format: Paperback
Billionaire Matthew Colton was the fifth victim. He was found in his bathtub filled with red wine and an indecipherable script of symbols and lines ending with a bloody paw print. It was the same symbol left at all the crime scenes. His wine collection was worth over 13 million dollars. He had to watch as the killer dumped it down the drain, then filled the bathtub to drown him in it. Fits in with what's going on today, people's resentment of the rich and their flaunting of their wealth.

Dominic Sant'Angello looked out the window of his fancy 87th floor office of the John Hancock Center in Chicago, Illinois. He was CEO and principal shareholder of Sigma Venture Capital. He thought of two of their clients, Deuce Meredith, CEO at Razorback Software and Liang Wong, founder of Silicon Pathways, having been murdered. Now Matthew. Two deaths a coincidence? Not three. He was about to lose everything. Bankruptcy was just a matter of days away. He was finished.

FBI Profiler, Scott Forester had spent six months chasing a killer in Denver. He worked at the FBI National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime in Quantico, Virginia and had been called back to help when Matthew was killed.The first murder had been done in Florida, then two victims in Wyoming and now the Hampton's.

The killer used the wine to torture Matthew and make him suffer. Was it a part of the killer's ritual? Why? There had to be a pattern to all the murders. What was it? Deuce Meredith had been wounded and left alive, yet his guide had died instantly. Each victim had a specific torture attached to it. Was it a test? A contest? Payback? Was the killer making a statement?
