Hayleigh’s first and most enduring love is reading. As an only child, books were her favorite form of entertainment and her earliest memories include laughing and crying over Charlotte’s Web.
Originally from Southern California, Hayleigh now lives in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon. She is currently a working physician who writes whenever opportunity and inspiration strike. When not treating patients or writing, Hayleigh can be found reading (of course), teaching herself to play the lever harp, or running/biking/swimming/strength training with her husband in a friendly rivalry they’ve enjoyed since their second date hike.
She loves strong female protagonists, animals and vanilla chai tea.
