Nice to Meet You!


Hello! I'm Hayley, an indie fantasy author currently in the midst of writing and publishing my debut series, The Kerafin Chronicles.


As a lifelong reader, I always dreamed of creating the type of stories that inspired me as a child - whimsical, hopeful tales like The Chronicles of Narnia, Heidi, and Little House on the Prairie. After receiving my Mechanical Engineering degree from Auburn University (War Eagle!), I worked for a few years in the military defense industry before deciding I wasn't ready to give up on my writing dreams. I then revamped Brenna and Katiel's story (one of my many, many scrapped projects) and started from scratch on a new draft, which eventually became Ink and Ore

Outside of reading and writing, I love baking, photography, spending time with my family, and doing nearly any activity outdoors, especially if it involves a beach. Though I'm from Alabama originally, I now live in Florida with my loving husband, Nick, my adorable baby son, Hollis, and my sweet calico cat, Maui.
