About Cross Creek Books & Cross Creek YA


Cross Creek Books™ and Cross Creek YA™

"The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook."  Proverbs 18:4 King James Version (KJV)


Cross Creek Books™ publishes Middle Grade (MG) Christian fiction written and illustrated for ages 8 and older. 

All of the Cross Creek Books titles are profanity-free, feature Christian characters, protagonists that rely on the word of God for their strength and endurance against their struggles, challenges and find victory and triumph over their tribulations using their newly found faith, and trust in Jesus.

Inside each of our Cross Creek Books titles you'll meet characters who are saved, characters who aren't sure what they believe or if they can even trust in a Lord they can't see, and characters who may never find the Lord at all.

Depending on the book imprint and series, our titles may be available as handouts, serials, short stories, audio, paperback, coil binding, hardcover and in boxed sets. 


Cross Creek Books™  feature kids who enjoy life, experience friendships, various family relationships, and their stories may be set anywhere in the world. Each title sends its characters on new adventures, exploring mysteries, and making their own history. 

Cross Creek YA™ publishes Young Adult (YA) Christian fiction for ages 13 and up.
