About the author:
Since the age of four, Haley Whitehall always wanted to be a writer. She went to Central Washington University and majored in her other favorite subject: history. She has social studies and library endorsements. Now she pairs her two passions into writing historical fiction set in the nineteenth century U.S.

She writes what she fondly calls "out of the box" stories. Forgotten history and the complexities of human nature inspire her characters and plots. Mark Twain serves as her writing mentor.

Haley loves coffee a little too much. Perhaps that is why she is a night owl. Cats, a good book, and a view of the mountains make her happy. She blogs at HaleyWhitehall.com or you can follow her on Twitter @HaleyWhitehall.

Living Half Free
 

Authored by Haley Whitehall

When Zachariah, a naïve mulatto slave, is sold to a Kentucky slave trader, and separated from his ma and sister, he realizes the true meaning of not having rights. Singled out for abuse by his new master's sadistic son, he dreams of only one thing: escape. He thinks he's found it when he falls in love with a Cherokee woman from a powerful family, under whose direction he learns to pass as white. But it's not long before he discovers that freedom that's based on a lie will only get him so far. While struggling to find his place in the world, he also wrestles within his heart to realize his faith. This faith is tested when his slave past catches up with him, and threatens everyone he cares for. He must decide whether slavery is the price he's willing to pay for his family's freedom.
