After College, he worked for ABC news in Louisiana as a cameraman/ editor. The culmination of these things has given his writings a somewhat cinematic feel, often times with a touch of humor. Later in life, Cornelious began taking credit counseling and wealth management courses in Los Angeles. This inspired him to help others, which lead to the publication of his first book. He is also greatly inspired by political and religious debates. He often says, "his passion is to let the world know when people disagree on an issue, it does not mean they are at odds or enemies. It means simply that, they disagree. We all have different backgrounds and experiences. Disagreeing is inevitable." Often times, Cornelious' non-fiction books have a political or "religious" undertone. His fiction, is greatly inspired by sci-fi, horror, music, and action films often times with a love story hidden in the background. You can always expect Cornelious Jordan to put forward "A+ work" and work hard to have a product he can be proud of and for you to be satisfied with. With his multifaceted background and life experiences, expect more from this talented writer.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is called Love's Imposter. I wrote this book for the people who are like me and grew up around a lot of arguing and unsuccessful relationships. After my second messy break-up I began to ask myself questions. Why do my relationships have such explosive arguments? Why do we call each other ugly names? Why do I lose my temper to the point that I am enraged? A friend invited me to church and I heard this scripture, "Be angry, but do not sin in your anger." That day changed my life. I began to dig deep to discover more of what I just heard. Today, I am a new person. My following relationship was completely different from all the others. We never cursed at one another or called each other ugly names. I didn't say we didn't argue. We did, but our arguments were healthy. We did not sin in our anger. I wrote this book because I wanted to share with you my journey. If I could change from a man repeating a vicious cycle to having a healthy relationship anyone can. I am going to share with you how I did it.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story, I ever wrote was in second grade. I don't remember it verbatim, because I was seven years old. I remember it being about prehistoric times and the sky was one big cloud. One day a volcano erupted and separated the sky. That year, my teacher submitted it into a short story contest and I won first place. I guess there was a writer in me all along. I believe my mom has that story and the award somewhere. Lol, as mom's tend to do.
