About Cori Nicole Smith Wamsley

Cori Nicole Smith Wamsley writes fun, quirky books for adults and children based on experiences that she found magical, interesting, or perplexing.

Cori's Martina Mackenzie series was spawned from her experience working in an ice cream shop---which just feels whimsical---and her love for mystery and fantasy books. It is about a girl who takes her friends through an ice cream machine on a journey to help fairies, elves, and other creatures discover what is happening to their secret world.

Confessions of the Editor Brigand exposes Cori's soul as the main character, Zhanna, struggles with her desire for perfect written communication and why it isn't taken seriously. Cori and Zhanna also both find online dating, especially the profiles, amusing (Zhanna spends a lot of time perusing them with her friends).

The Knight and the Ninjas is Cori's first children's book---an epic poem. It features a clumsy knight charged with rescuing a princess from a dragon. When he falls through a magic mirror and lands in Japan, he meets ninjas, discovers his strengths, and achieves his quest with some help from his new friends.

Cori also performs editing for other writers. She edited the book Ordinary People, Extraordinary Planet and the second edition of the Common Threads trilogy authored by Dr. Shellie Hipsky. She also edited the first book in the Glamorous Madison series (soon to be published), authored by Melanie Blue.

Cori is a member of the Global Sisterhood (http://www.globalsisterhoodonline.org/). She holds a bachelor's in biology, a bachelor's in English, and a master's in English. Cori has written novels, magazine and newspaper articles, blog posts, and a variety of other pieces over her career.

Professional writing and editorial work may also be credited as "Cori Nicole Smith."
