Michael Cornelius

Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, United States


My first novel, Creating Man, was released by The Vineyard Press in 2001 and was their second-best selling book of that year, eventually being named as finalist for a 2002 Lambda Literary Prize and nominated for an American Library Association Award and Independent Press Award. In 2003, The Vineyard Press released my second book, the detective spoof Susan Slutt, Girl Detective, a work I co-authored with Kate Emburg. The Last Sunday is my first novel in the horror genre, though I am already outlining a follow up to the book. As a medievalist and professor of English at Wilson College in Chambersburg, PA. I have published numerous academic articles in various refereed journals, worked as a freelance writer for four years, and have published several speculative fiction pieces in anthologies and journals.
