Welcome to Brown Corliss Books!

As writers of fiction, we have one goal: to create stories that make for good reading. Some would call this ambitious, but we’re not daunted by the challenge because we are avid readers, too. Knowing what we enjoy in a book — engaging writing, vividly depicted characters, and a compelling story line that keeps us reading to the final word on the last page — helps us to better define our writing responsibilities and efforts to achieve our goal. We hope our books bring you hours of enjoyment and entertainment.
