AfriClassical has written about the piano recordings of Maria Thompson Corley for many years, but we have also read some of her published articles.  On July 4, 2016 she published a novel entitled Letting Go. describes her this way:

Maria Thompson Corley is a Canadian pianist (MM, DMA, The Juilliard School) of Jamaican and Bermudian descent, with experience as a college professor, private piano instructor, composer, arranger and voice actor. She has contributed to Broad Street Review since 2008, and also blogs for Huffington Post. Her first novel, Choices, was published by Kensington.

Here is an excerpt from a review at  

Louise Caiola, USA Today Bestselling Author of The Making of Nebraska Brown, called LETTING GO "a smart and sexy story that captures the raw essence of love. Heartfelt, haunting, tender, tough and true." Even though she lives hundreds of miles away, when Langston, who dreams of being a chef, meets Cecile, a Juilliard-trained pianist, he is sure that his history of being a sidekick, instead of a love interest, is finally over. Their connection is real and full of potential for a deeper bond, but the obstacles between them turn out to be greater than distance. Can these busy, complicated people be ready for each other at the same time? Does it even matter? Before they can answer these questions, each must do battle with the ultimate demon—fear.
