Reinier Krol


Reinier Krol is an Australian-based writer/filmmaker with 20 years experience in the entertainment industry; working as a director and producer on various shorts, docos and corporate videos. He has also written a number of feature-length screenplays.

He published his first full-length novel, “Loch Ness” (as Reinier J. Krol) in 2000, before focusing on writing, directing and producing for the screen.

He has returned to prose because of his passion for the themes explored in Firenight.

The author is indefatigably passionate about raising awareness of the growing emotional struggles of young people, depression and teenage suicide prevention. Coming from a background of counselling young people, the author has seen first-hand the emotional challenges young people face and the all-too-often path to self-destruction they choose.

The author encourages everyone to proliferate a much-needed dialogue and understanding within the community about the scope and seriousness of this otherwise, out-of-sight-out-of-mind – and devastating – crisis facing young people today.
