C. Howard Rieling has a way of writing that makes people ask his wife if she’s safe being married to him. Two words that have been used to describe him are “talented…and sick.” Retribution fiction is what he calls his genre, and Rieling draws inspiration for his writing from a childhood of traumatic altercations as an inner-city kid living in Jersey City, New Jersey. Unable to escape bullying and beatings, Rieling would imagine himself to be imbued with powers like his comic-book heroes. His stories are rich in recompense and travel down dark roads, employ supernatural forces, and dish out overflowing portions of whoop-ass against carefully crafted villains. 😱

City life led Rieling to become a lifelong practitioner of Chinese and Okinawan martial arts and he has been awarded three black belt ranks. He is also an avid collector of fossils and is happy digging and sinking knee-deep in sticky mud in bug-infested streams in search of specimens. He loves music and has two awesome and accomplished teenagers - a daughter with an angelic voice who is destined for greatness, and a son who is an animal on the drums.

Ghost on the Left and Strix are both available on Amazon.

Don’t Miss This Book!

Bought this book on a whim because I’m a Jersey Girl. I am so glad I did. This book has everything action, romance, legend and even a bit of comic relief! Great read from a debut novelist that I hope to read again. I hope his next book is already in the works.

This book was written for everyone who needs to remember that God and the devil both have different forms and different names but when it comes down to it may goodness and love,always prevail.

GHOST ON THE LEFT

Revenge with help of a personal ghost!

Great read for people who love ghost story and the supernatural and getting revenge. Also a person who has lived in NJ will get a nostalgic feeling with authors description of the life of the protagonist in NJ
