Meet the talented SciFan author Christie M. Stenzel! In her words, “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.”
Having obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in English, a Master’s Degree in Leadership, and a degree in ultrasound, she began to pursue her dream of writing with hopes to one day make it a career. Because she has many interests and ideas, her ultimate goal is to release works of fiction in multiple genres. Science Fantasy will always be her first love however, as she has always has an intense imagination that threatens to inundate her if the stories are not expelled onto paper.
Christie currently has five published books: an ongoing SciFan series with three installments so far (the fourth book is coming in December 2016), a fantasy short story, and a suspense/thriller short story. The first book in her fantasy series, The Grey Eyed Storm: The Occuli, Book One, has now won multiple awards.
Summary for The Grey Eyed Storm: The Occuli, Book One:
A captivating, supernatural Fantasy/SciFan novel about a race of people with magical powers depending on the color of their eyes, who are fighting for their very survival against evil forces that want to extinguish them and take their powers and their land for themselves!
Here’s a more in-depth description of Book One: The Grey Eyed Storm
Imagine the shock of being eighteen year old Remy Verbetta and finding out that you are not only not “human”, but also are not from this “world”. Remy’s life is turned upside down when she suddenly finds out her entire life has been a lie. Another “world” is living and breathing along-side our own, a kind of alternate dimension. On her eighteenth birthday, Remy finds out that she is not “human”, but rather a member of an ancient and almost extinct race called the Occuli. Each Occuli has different magical powers based solely their eye color.
A multiple award-winning supernatural SciFan novel, The Grey Eyed Storm: The Occuli, Book One, follows Remy on a journey of self-discovery, magic, mystery, romance and betrayal, as she tries to figure out a way to not only survive, but also find a way back to her true home and save the Occuli from extinction! Considering the setting starts with a girl from our modern world that is magically transported to another world, her story falls under the Portal Fiction subgenre of SciFan. This subgenre incorporates portals into an alternate world as a primary piece of world-building. More specifically, it includes the use of portals between other worlds, while maintaining a balance of supernatural and technological elements.
