Hayley is originally from Stockport, Cheshire, but relocated to the coast of North Wales in 2010 and now enjoys living a few minutes walk from the Irish Sea. She graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with an honours degree in Accountancy, and later studied for a Post Graduate Certificate in Education in Manchester. Whilst teaching in Wales, she completed her â€˜Post Graduate Certificate in Bilingualism in Educationâ€™.
Hayley is a qualified primary school teacher and mother of five children. Sheâ€™s spent many years watching youngsters become absorbed in fiction books. Inspired, she decided to write her own debut childrenâ€™s fantasy novel.
This was a personal book for Hayley, not only because her twelve year old daughter illustrated it and designed the cover, but because of the young minds she hopes to capture: â€œI wrote this book after being inspired by my own children and the children I have taught as a primary school teacher over the last fifteen years,â€ explains Hayley. â€œBeing a teacher is rewarding, but often emotionally challenging and you meet children from all walks of life. Every child has their own individual strengths and weaknesses, but I find that all children have one thing in common ... a love of fiction books. I wanted to create a story that would mesmerise children and carry them away into another exciting, fantasy world.â€
Labyrinth Junction is the first book in a planned series.
Hayleyâ€™s interests include spending time with her children, wildlife, walking her two collie dogs, learning Welsh and, of course, reading!
