One of my favorite authors right now is Cathy Glass. It’s a pseudonym because she is an active (and amazing) foster carer. Many of her books are based on her experience caring for some very traumatized children. She also has a new crime-drama series under the name of Lisa Stone that’s super fun.
I find it cathartic and healing to hear her perspective on the lives of the young people she cares for. I also really appreciate her view of the foster care system. She is not in the U.S. and part of the appeal is that the system where she is, though flawed, really strives to maintain the best interest of the child as the key tenet of their work.
All her books are available at Amazon, and in eBook format.
