Hayley writes contemporary YA fiction and enjoys finding the funny in everything, especially the things that she shouldn’t.
Long-listed for the Bath Children’s Novel award, she writes in the space between family and work, with much support from the wonderful women of her writing group.
Mum to a teenage boy, she spends a disproportionate amount of time hoping that her son’s life is far less complicated than those of the characters in her books, and trying to ensure he becomes a ‘good egg’, which she thinks would be the best thing of all.
Originally from the Forest of Dean, Hayley lives with her family and hairy breeze-block of a dog in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
