Hi. I’m Hayley.
Here’s a little bit about me:
I care about families. I believe in ushering children into this world with dignity and then nurturing them tenderly as they become themselves.
I believe in stories, whether told aloud or shared through books. That’s one of the things I like best about picture books. They invite the read-aloud, the blend of the writer’s unfamiliar voice–their unique rhythm and carefully chosen words–with the reader’s familiar, comforting voice. I promise to strive to use my wits and my words to bring families together with stories.
I love horses. It took me decades to figure out that my favorite color was brown. When I announced my decision, a dear friend responded, “Duh. Like a horse.” That still makes me smile.
Potato chips are my favorite food. Onion dip is nice but optional.

Thanks for stopping by the meadow. Enjoy the day.
