Hi. My name is D.R. Rosensteel. I write clean YA fantasy action-adventure stories wrapped around real teen issues like bullying, drug abuse, and peer pressure. There may be a hint of romance or a touch of horror, but there will always be action, action action!
My message to kids who feel different—stick together. We have the rest of the world outnumbered.
My message to parents—pay attention. The evils of bullying, drug abuse, and peer pressure are real, and our kids don’t always talk about it. Don’t be a helicopter, but never be afraid to be a parent. Our kids need our guidance and our love. It’s great that they have friends who have their backs, but it’s better that they know you do.
My message to Psi Fighters—Vanquish Evil, Do Right, Protect the Innocent!
When Rinnie Noelle, Greensburg’s youngest masked crime-fighter, totally botches her first mission and lets a frightening kidnapper escape, she is reassigned to protect her high school from arch-nemesis Mason Draudimon, a bully who has picked on her since fifth grade. The thought bores her to death. She could easily dust the lockers with his face, which would be fun, but it would also give away the secret of her true identity.
But the assignment becomes interesting when Rinnie discovers that the school has become a hunting ground, and she is the prey. The Walpurgis Knights, a mysterious group of supervillains, have dispatched an apprentice to find her. The good news is, he doesn’t know her true identity. The bad news is, she doesn’t know his, either. Rinnie immediately suspects that Mason is the unknown apprentice, and taking him down becomes her second mission, which she vows to complete successfully.
Aided by an oddly shaped, politically imperfect band of outcasts who call themselves the Dweeb League, Rinnie searches the high school for clues that will prove whether Mason is the elusive apprentice. In an unpredictable game of deception, she learns that the Walpurgis Knights, the kidnapper, and Mason are all tied irrevocably to Nicolaitan, the man who murdered her parents. Rinnie takes her Mental Arts skills to their limits in her first battle against the evil Walpurgis Knights.Purchase on Amazon
Sixteen-year-old Rinnie Noelle is called into action again as the crime rate suddenly accelerates in Greensburg. Nicolaitan, the man who murdered Rinnie’s parents, makes it clear that he wants Rinnie, and will go on a murder spree until she gives herself up. Rinnie’s friends and teachers disappear in a bizarre game of riddles where fresh cemetery plots and poetic clues point to the next victim. Her rescue missions expose Rinnie to the horrors of the mysterious LaReau Mansion, and the secrets of the haunted Livermore Burial Grounds.
Between keeping the Dweeb League from getting themselves killed, dealing with a new Psi Fighter who gives her attitude, and trying to figure out who Nicolaitan’s next victim is before it’s too late, Rinnie learns that the stakes are higher than she is ready to deal with. Nicolaitan has declared war. He is using a mind-control drug to manipulate high school students, using them as puppets to carry out his crimes, and he doesn’t care who becomes collateral damage in the process.
In a climactic showdown, the Psi Fighters are badly outnumbered by Walpurgis Knights when they face off for the first time in a decade. Even if the Knights lose, someone Rinnie loves may die in battle. But if the Knights win, Rinnie will be shot full of the mind control drug Psychedone 10, and forced to become Nicolaitan’s slave.Pre-Book on Amazon
(The actual cover will most likely not look like this, but we don't have the official version yet. Until then, this one's pretty awesome, isn't it?)
Nicolaitan finally has the bait he needs to bring sixteen-year-old Psi Fighter Rinnie Noelle into his evil clutches. He has captured Andy, Rinnie’s beloved mentor, and the Kilodan, leader of the Psi Fighters. She has twenty-four hours to show herself, or Nicolaitan will murder them and hang their bodies from the Courthouse flagpole.
Rinnie is forced to take on the most desperate mission of her life, so desperate that she has to trust Phobos, a Walpurgis Knight personally trained by Nicolaitan, with the Psi Fighter’s most guarded secrets. Worse yet, she is about to lead her closest friends on a mission they may not survive.
In the final chapter of the Walpurgis Knights saga, Rinnie and her friends set out to find Camelot, Nicolaitan’s hidden lair, and rescue the captured Psi Fighters. She vows to bring Andy and the Kilodan back alive, or not return at all.Stay Tuned...Coming Soon!
It’s great to be able to escape into a world where the hero is clearly the "good guy"(girl). I thoroughly enjoyed the depth given to the characters, and Rinnie’s sarcasm even in the middle of a crisis is a riot.
Psi Another Day is an enjoyable zany read PERFECT for tweens and teens.
What’s not to like about a teenage girl out to avenge her parents’ murder and reclaim safety and order for her bullied classmates while using psionic superpowers she hasn’t quite mastered?
Psi Another Day is an absolutely wonderful book -- full of charm, creativity, morality and uniqueness.
Get ready for the joyride of your life and a truly immersive adventure. Rosensteel’s delicate choice of words truly paints a masterpiece on the canvas that is the mind.
Good read. Got me on the first page, kept me to the end. Didn't want to put it down.
I would love to hear your feedback or questions about the books, characters and themes.
Please do not send me manuscripts or story ideas. This protects you and me legally.
(Sorry, my lawyer made me write that.)
