Katie Haynes about this book: Broken, is a story about a family torn apart by child abuse. It shows cycles of how abused children become abusers themselves. This book will make you laugh and cry, and maybe break your heart. As an abused child myself, I felt that I needed to write about this subject and maybe open others eyes to it.
I write frankly about child abuse and what it does to families. I leave nothing out of my novels, and I feel that if people would just open their eyes to this subject and maybe do the right thing, maybe they can save a child as well as the family. I can't do it alone. Let's stop it together.
Katie never made it to the seventh grade and went back to get her GED. She never gave up on her dream of being an writer. She says it takes more guts, and the ability to keep pushing for what you want. She believes that anyone can go after their dreams...Just keep reaching!
• Katie Haynes lives in the Kansas City area. She has one daughter, Joanna, and one granddaughter, Taylor.

Broken, the other side of Darkness and Im reading the kiss of Death
I love the books! Katie shows that kids need to be helped and know that they are not bad and that person no matter it be father, a friend of the family or the boy next door. It's them that are wrong! Katie, can't wait read the next book! [by Michelle]
Broke My Heart
It's not every day that someone writes about this subject. I think we all should care just a little more and do what's right. Thumbs up to this Author. [by Victoria]
Broken written by Katie Haynes is an amazing book. I could not put the book down. I now have the 2nd book she has written "Kiss of Death" Broken is very emotional and hits the heart. I am very proud of Katie to be able to write these books on life of abuse because it's a hard thing to forgive and forget. She is a very strong woman. If you have not read the books you really need to read them and get started cause she has more coming. [by Wandza Stull]
I Will Buy the Next One Too
My hairdresser gave me a copy of Broken, and Kiss of Death, to read. The Author is her client. I have to say that Broken, made me cry, and I couldn't seem to stop myself. Kiss of Death was sad also but it really had a good ending. It makes your heart break with what abused children really go through. Makes me think that maybe we need to be a little more loving and compassion to all children with this back ground. I liked the books a lot and will buy the next one. [by Danielle Jamison]
Read Both Her Books
I read both these books and enjoyed them both. Broken was a little different but I still liked it. Kiss of Death was my favorite and I am waiting for her new one The other side of Darkness, at which I will buy that one also. Strange writing but I actually enjoy them. It almost seems like she has been through so much herself. [by Victor R Hanes]
