Hey, all! I'm Verity Lucia. I'm a wife, mom to four awesome kids, and a former wayward teen. I was raised in a loving Christian household, but as a teen had too many questions about our faith and not enough answers. So, when I left home at seventeen, as a non-practicing Catholic, and threw myself into an unhealthy college environment with nothing but my own desires to guide me, the result wasn't pretty.
I was on fire, not for God, but for architecture and chasing my dreams.
Fortunately, God drew me out of the mess I'd made, and I finally saw that His ways were better than mine. I surrendered to His will, and now instead of designing buildings, I write the books that I needed as a teen and young adult—books that I pray will touch you as they have touched me.
What started as a project to talk with my daughter about the challenges of living in a broken world, The HIDDEN Series, has become a gritty, fast-paced book series featuring authentic teen characters that readers are not likely to forget.
The stories of Clare and her friends will connect with readers of all ages.
Is evil real? How do I find peace after the loss of a loved one? Does my suffering matter? The questions on the character’s hearts are timeless, and you don’t have to be in high school to find value in these stories.
Read them! Share them! Pass them on to those in your life that need them most!
Love and prayers,
Do you have a struggling teen?
ARE YOU WONDERING IF YOUR TEEN BELIEVES IN GOD? Are you hurting as you watch your teenager struggle with anxiety, depression, and doubt? Are you wondering what you can do to help your teen find peace in this increasingly dark world?

(A Pro-life Novel)
Must Read for Teens & Parents
Amazon Review from June 12, 2023
"This novel is an easy, must read for teens and their parents providing a gateway to discuss the sensitive topic of teen pregnancy... vivid and engaging you won't want to put it down... My husband used the word "Captivating" for this book. He felt it was Morally Sound and approached the moral issues introduced theologically according to Church teachings. We all can learn a lot from this book. If you have teens yourself or care about grandchildren, you will find it to be a valuable tool... Can't wait for book three to find our what happens for the next main character Nikki!"
Love this series!

Perfect "beach read!"
You will fly through this book!
Amazon Review from June 1, 2023
"I read “Secrets” on my Mexico vacation this year and it did NOT disappoint. Fast paced, even suspenseful at times the storyline sucks you in and has you completely gripped only a couple dozen pages in. Intertwined with the importance of sexual ethics and the beauty of healthy relationships versus the harms of bad ones, women of all ages will enjoy this book!"
