Hayley 0037.jpg

Hayley grew up in a haunted farmhouse which instilled a somewhat unhealthy obsession with Stephen King. As a result, her YA novels dwell in the dark and twisty, and focus on the hope that can be found in even the darkest of places. She still sleeps with the lights on.

She is a founding member of the YA writers group Carpe Magicae, and an active member of Write Links Children’s Writers Group. She regularly attends awesome writing workshops offered by Queensland Writer's Centre.
