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. Read more...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. Read more...Purchase 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. Read more...
...Coming early 2017!
Psi Another Day is an absolutely wonderful book -- full of charm, creativity, morality and uniqueness.
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.
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?
Live and Let Psi is a fantastic adrenaline rush. I really like this series. Rinnie is clever and she knows how to get out of difficult situations. She's fierce and loyal and I loved that about her.
...interesting twists and turns as well as a holy crap ending.
Right off the bat, there is a classic Rinnie and Andy moment to help you fall in love with the characters all over again.
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.)

Okay, that schedule isn't totally accurate. The truth is, when I get in the zone I write until my eyes bleed. I rarely remember what time I started and usually fall unconscious from exhaustion, so I never see the clock when I'm done.
