Cornell DeVille considers himself an Imagination Director. His writing leads the reader on a journey that allows them to escape the real world and venture into a special realm where anything can happen.
A member of the Baby Boom generation, DeVille was influenced by the great storytellers of the fifties and sixties, including such Hollywood icons as Walt Disney, Alfred Hitchcock and Rod Serling. His early reading included the works of Jules Verne, Edgar Allen Poe, O. Henry, and H.G. Wells. Those early memories remained with him throughout the years and continue to influence his writing today.
DeVille grew up in the Kansas City area, where he lives today with his wife, Rosie, their bichon-poodle Hannah, and a Himalayan Persian cat named Billy. In addition to writing, DeVille is a professional musician and a nationally distributed wildlife artist. You can find him on Twitter as cornelldeville1 and on Facebook as Author Cornell DeVille.
