Cori Ferguson (writing prior as pen name Cori Garrison) was born in northern Florida, raised in northern Indiana but has called St. Louis her home for the past 20 years. She lives with her wife & sons, ages 17, 15 & 9 and their dog & 2 cats. She has had a 20+ year career in Human Resources & IT spending the first 14 years of her career working in Human Resources in the aviation industry before transitioning to IT as a solutions analyst for several years and has now made the transition back to HR! Cori and her family enjoy exploring, travelling and spending time with friends.
Writing lesbian romance part-time was a hobby for years before deciding to self-publish her work. Her focus now is to write stories that share some of the struggles that LGBT people face in life and with their families, particularly how those experiences cause feelings of inadequacy, guilt & shame. She wants to produce a story that actually speaks to readers on a core human level and is not totally focused on sex. Of course, she always includes the steamy, romantic and quite frequently erotic, scenes! She currently is a one-woman show; writing, proof reading, editing, doing cover art, marketing, running social media sites and publishing her own work.
Media & Reviews
Garrison's attitude towards the authenticity of her story only further emphasizes the importance of having a lesbian writing lesbian romance. The stories should be about, for and by lesbians.
The book gets a definite recommendation from me and I'm keeping an eye on the author because her books have so much promise.
Every now and then you find an author who takes you on an emotional journey, Cori Garrison delivers that with these two books.
