Welcome to my author site. I write issue-based, faith-based Young Adult (YA) fiction. I love listening to YA fiction while I drive. Often times the stories deal with difficult themes such as depression, death, suicide, bullying, abuse and more. They give the readers little hope. I want to write engaging stories with realistic characters that not only entertain, but also offer hope and healing to teens who have been through difficult times. Whether struggling or not, I hope you will enjoy the books.
Haven Point Publishing publishes Young adult realistic fiction books that have an interesting story world, feature engaging characters, contain action, suspense, and a quick paced read. They are issue-based, faith-based books that can either be a fun read or a step in your journey to hope and healing.

A Thousand Lies
by Kathy Cassel
For talented teen photographer Bailey Collins, small-town life is good if predictable. Great friends. Loving if overly-protective parents. Academic and artistic success. An amazing new boyfriend.
Until a school field trip to a Chicago photography exhibit turns upside-down everything Bailey has believed about her life. Why are the baby pictures missing from her own past exhibited under another child’s name? Who is this elusive artist whose own identity appears as much a mystery as her exhibit? Or the hostile stranger bizarrely claiming to be Bailey’s birth father?
Above all, if everything about Bailey’s life is a lie, who are the people she has always called Mom and Dad? And if they can’t be trusted, how can she trust the loving God in whom they’ve taught her to place her faith? As a mountain of unraveling lies place both Bailey and those she cares about in danger, she sets out on a peril-filled quest to expose the truth. Will uncovering her true identity bring the closure and purpose Bailey seeks—or turn out to be the worst mistake of her life?
