About the author:
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.
I currently have six published books: an ongoing fantasy series with four installments so far (and a fifth one coming soon!), a fantasy short story, and a suspense/thriller short story. Several of my books have won awards, but the first book in my fantasy series, The Grey Eyed Storm: The Occuli, Book One, has now won multiple awards which is very exciting!
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.
More information is available about my ongoing series at www.theocculi.com and on my author website at: www.christiemstenzel.com. You can also follow me on Facebook at Christie Stenzel: Author or on Twitter at CStenzelWriter for more details on other published works and upcoming projects.
Through Golden Eyes: The Occuli, Zias' Story

GOLD MEDAL WINNER - 2016 AUTHORSdb.com Book Cover Contest!
"FIVE STARS!" by Ellie and AJSW
"LOVED THE JOURNAL FORMAT! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERIES!" by DJS
The first short story in the Occuli series is here!
A golden-eyed, or "Aureus", has one sole purpose in life: to protect. Raised from children to be bodyguards, these Occuli are both the fastest and strongest and are commonly used as fierce weapons.
Frequently they are not what they seem however, as they can be tempted by too much power and control over those they protect. This can lead them down a dark and dangerous path.
This supplement to Book One gives the reader a more intimate look at the character of Zias. In this story the reader is taken through Zias' personal journal, giving his perspective on the journey so far with Remy and the other Occuli. He tells the story through his eyes about his struggle to remember his past and break from traditions and curses, while putting it all on the line for the love of his life, Remy Verbetta.
