Dear Reader,

I’m truly grateful you took a moment to stop by my home on the web. If you aren’t already familiar with me or my work, let me bring you up to date…

I’m a wine-loving, paranormal junkie who writes suspense thrillers set at the Jersey Shore, where I also live. I’ve been writing dark fiction since childhood (believe it or not!), although mainly short-stories in the horror, science fiction and paranormal genres. However, my debut novel, CHOOSING EVIL is a supernatural thriller.

My intense curiosity about the psychology behind human behavior, specifically abnormal psychology, propelled me to obtain a Master of Arts in Psychological Counseling and sent me on a twenty-year career in the mental health counseling and human resources fields. In addition to my work in business and fiction, I’m also the founder of Embrace the Unknown, an inspirational non-fiction blog about writing and life.

My debut novel, CHOOSING EVIL (ENSOULED TRILOGY, #1) was published by Midnight Frost Books in 2014 and is rated 4.5-5 stars on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Goodreads. Its sequel, BREAKING EVIL is set to be published later this year, as well as a mainstream thriller novella LURING SHADOWS, which is releasing August 31.

Okay, that’s enough about me…I want to know all about you!

If you have a minute to spare, I’d love it if you’d check out my website and add comments with feedback from your perspective. If you are so inclined, I’d also love to add you to my VIP email list, where you’ll get entered into a monthly raffle for a chance to win a prize (no purchase necessary). As always, I’d love to hear from  you personally so don’t hesitate to send me an email at any time: kristinarienziauthor@gmail.com.

Thank you again for stopping by! I hope you’ll come back often.

3D Choosing Evil

Here’s what readers are saying about CHOOSING EVIL:

“I absolutely LOVED this book! The author did a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life. I found all of the characters to be relatable – all of us knows someone in our lives like them. I can’t wait for the next book to come out!” – lori

“Rienzi creates a paranormal world that sucks her readers in. It’s a world where demons and humans live side by side, after all, they all have their rules. It is also a world where rules mean nothing. Secrets, tragedy, and betrayal abound. The characters are deep and multi dimensional. They pop off the pages faster than you can turn them. And you will want to turn them fast. Twists and turns and OMG moments are all part of the ride. Also part of the ride are themes of prejudice, politics and self-awareness.” – JNM

“Rienzi’s first novel is a magnificent effort. Character development is excellent with personalities bursting from the pages. The plot thickens throughout the book leaving the reader anticipating the next in the series. A superb beginning for an author I hope to read a lot more from.” – amp10q

“Choosing Evil” kept me riveted page by page, pulling me along through the story. Very creative; stretches the imagination. Can’t wait for the next installment!” – Ed

“With all the supernatural books available these days, it is so refreshing to read something new. I loved the demon idea. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. Kristina really developed the characters, and the plot was well thought out. She provided great details and Imagery that made the story come alive. I can’t wait until the next book!” – Val
