Haley has been writing stories since she was five, but did not decide to be a full-time writer until her college years. She studied English and Biology at Eastern New Mexico University and has published poetry in the university's publication El Portal, as well as received an award of excellence for English. Haley has traveled internationally twice, once in 2014 for the International Tae Kwon-Do Federation tournament in Rome, Italy, and again last summer, when she studied Spanish in Guatemala for a month. Growing up, her family traveled around most of the continental United States, taking her from California to Maryland, and many states in between. She currently resides in New Mexico, and when she's not writing, she enjoys reading, ceramics, binge-watching TV, and hanging out with her two dogs, Gidget and Cissy.
