Writing and reading are my passions! My dream to be a writer began when, as a five year old child, I would ask my mother to write down the stories I would make up about talking dogs.
Since growing up and becoming further educated with a Bachelor's Degree in English (I have an affinity for classic literature), a Master's Degree in Leadership, and a degree in Ultrasound, I have begun to pursue that dream in hopes of one day making it my career. I have many interests and ideas so my ultimate goal is to release works of fiction in multiple genres. Fantasy will always be my first love however as I have always had an intense imagination that threatens to inundate me if not expelled onto paper.
Aside from writing, I enjoy physical activities like running, weight training, and yoga. I am blessed to have an amazing family, close friends and two beloved canine companions.

LOVED IT!! The Occuli book series has made a new fan of fantasy novels out of me! Like the previous ones, this new book is well written, creative, descriptive and made me feel like I was there. I could not put it down! I will be anxiously waiting for the next book in the series!

5 STAR REVIEW FROM READERS' FAVORITE!!! March, 2017
Christie Stenzel’s incredible writing style is intoxicating, drawing the reader into a magical world where anything and everything is possible....
I thoroughly enjoyed The Violet Eyed, and wholeheartedly recommend it to readers aged over 15 years, who are fans of the paranormal, mystery, drama, romance, and finding oneself through it all.
