More About the Author

If I were to define myself in one sentence, I would say, "I'm a girl who loves to see God working."

I write soul-stirring fiction, with real characters that stay with readers long after they have closed the book, (or turned the e-reader off.)

The only thing I love more than writing is reading, so let me know what you're reading.

Format: Paperback
"Preacher's Kids: Wicked and Wise" is the second installment in the Preacher's Kids series. In volume two, we're revisited by Pastor Mason Griffin and his family: his lovely wife Vivienne, their son Miles and identical twin daughters, Mia and Morgan, who are at times quite a handful.

Mia is a gentle soul. She's shy, self conscious and a little awkward. Mia has a journal that helps her cope with her best friend's death. In her journal she writes her innermost thoughts and feelings. The most popular boy in school, Shaun Banks, takes a liking to Mia. First off, Shaun comes to Mia's house to ask her to tutor him in Spanish. From the beginning Shaun's behavior is a little suspect, but Mia is so excited and flattered that she really doesn't notice. But his personality goes straight to bizarre as he becomes a nuisance with his constant calls and unwanted visits. Can Mia ever get him to stop harassing her?

Morgan, on the other hand, is Mia's complete opposite. She's popular, self confident, and has a slight rebellious streak. Morgan's life is consumed with cheerleading and she's obsessed with being the best cheerleader with the best squad. But Morgan has a secret that she's willing to go to any length to protect. Will Morgan's secret be exposed? What will be the repercussions?

With a colorful cast of characters, including Essie, Mia's wise friend; Karry, the girl with the quirky personality that perplexes everyone; and the free spirited Aunt Jackie. "Preacher's Kids: Wicked and Wise" is a sheer delight to read and it showcases Keleigh Crigler Hadley's considerable talents as a new voice in contemporary Christian fiction.

Format: Paperback
Mia is fighting issues regarding her boyfriend who has control issues and other who think he is 'too cute for her'. Meanwhile, her sister is battling with an eating disorder. With no one else to turn to for help, Mia befriends the weirdest girl in school to get rid of her stalker. How far will Mia go and can she hold on to her faith? Being a preacher's kid is never a dull moment.

PREACHERS KIDS: Wicked & Wise was a breath of fresh air for me. As someone who reads an insane amount of street fiction books, it is good to get away from that genre and read something meant to be enjoyable and educational in the same sitting. It was a pleasant read with a serious message for African American kids. It gaves a much needed insight to anorexia, which is not a color blind disease. I highly recommend it to young kids who may be experiencing something similar or may know of someone experiencing something similar to the issues covered in the book. I love the way Hadley gets her point across without shoving religion down the reader's throat.

Format: Paperback
Preacher's Kids: Wicked and Wise is a great piece of contemporary Christian young adult fiction. I liked the way that the author didn't ram Christianity down the reader's throat, although it was evident that this was Christian fiction. The story covered contemporary issues like anorexia, the need to belong to a group, death of a friend, mean girls, the temptations offered by Wiccans, a psycho-hottie boyfriend, getting braces; that young teenage girls would identify and be able to connect with. It was easy to read, although being a teacher, I did pick up some edits missed by the editor.
This is definitely a book I'd like my fourteen year old daughter to read. Many of the incidents and tech-language (Facebook, text talk)had me nodding my head, yeah, my daughter will so connect with this. The message about the dangers of anorexia and Wiccanism comes through strongly. Will definitely be passing this onto my teenager.

Format: Paperback
Preacher's Kids: Wicked and Wise by Keleigh Crigler Hadley is a timely book for young adults these days. Her writing style is fresh and relevant as she talks from the point of view of her teenaged character Mia. The topics of witchcraft and anorexia are exactly what young people are dealing with on a daily basis. She doesn't preach her Christian views but rather she allows her characters to act naturally, explore the curiosities of their temptations and find both error and wisdom in their actions. It was an enjoyable read with a real message for the youth of our day. I highly recommend it, not only for young people, but for adults who want a glimpse into the real world of kids today.
