To win the battle of her life, Sera is forced to do the unthinkable, taking drastic measures and risking the lives of those she loves most. She must fight to the death against the only supernatural leader she’s ever known, all for a chance to break the cycle of evil.

Interview with Kristina Rienzi
How did you come up with name of this book?
Breaking Evil is the second book in The Ensouled Trilogy, starting with Choosing Evil, and given the storyline the title just made sense to me. The main character, Serafina is forced to face the evil within and around her, and she struggles with whether she wants to embrace it, or resist it. She must decide if she'll break the cycle of evil, or join forces with it.
Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?
I read a ton! I'll read anything from motivational non-fiction to science fiction to women's fiction. At the end of the day, I love a good story. If I had to pick, my favorite genres would be the ones I also write in mystery, suspense, thriller, horror and paranormal.
Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?
I prefer to write in silence, which I can do when I write first thing in the morning. In the quiet, my mind becomes my complete focus, and I don't get distracted by anything else around me. Many times, I'm writing in the afternoon, so total silence isn't possible. When my dogs get up, they need to 'go to work' with me in the office, and then I'll have the television on in the background. My show of choice is the Twilight Zone (1960s version). Its energy inspires me and gets my right brain going strong.
If you could choose one of your books to be made into a movie which would it be and why?
Hands down, I'd recommend Choosing Evil, and then Breaking Evil and the final book (not yet released) in the trilogy. The trilogy's storyline is unique, and action packed. I think it would do really well on the big screen.
Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?
I'd like to write one book at a time, but my brain is in five places at once at all times, so I do well writing several books at once. I usually have two to three going, and I jump back and forth as the storylines grab me. I typically have one book I'm focused on finishing first, but I hop around to others as my muse gets pulled in one direction or another. It makes for a fun time!
