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!

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.

     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.
