About Shirley Corder
In her previous life, Shirley Corder was a registered nurse and busy minister's wife and mother. Following a confrontation with aggressive cancer in 1997, she turned her hobby of writing into a life-style, and has been writing for publication ever since. She has currently ten books published on Amazon.
"Strength Renewed: Meditations for your Journey through Breast Cancer," is available in paperback format, or as an eBook.
"Naomi ~ Beloved Mother-in-law" and "Eve ~ Mother of All" are available in paper-back format as well as eBooks. The remaining books in the series will be coming out in paperback soon. In this ongoing series, titled "Out of the Shadows", Shirley brings lesser-known Biblical women out of whatever shadow that hovers over them and reveals them as real flesh-and-blood women. They are devotional in nature, but each weaves an exciting story sticking close to Scripture. They make ideal Bible Studies.
Her latest published book, God in Africa ~ 90 Days in the Land of Majesty & Mystery, is an unusual devotional book in which Shirley shares many fascinating and little-known insights into the incredible continent of Africa while drawing the reader closer to the God who created them all.
Shirley is also contributing author to thirteen books to date including four Guideposts anthologies and some Chicken Soup books. She has published hundreds of devotional and inspirational articles internationally. She is also group director of CWOSA, an internet writers' support group for Christian writers of Southern Africa.
Shirley and her husband of over 50 years live only two blocks from the sea in beautiful Port Elizabeth, South Africa. They have a daughter and two sons, all happily married, and are the proud grandparents to four boys and two girls, covering an age span of 21 years. When Shirley is not writing, she enjoys making greeting cards, plays several musical instruments, and is co-director of a local choir.
