Hello My New Blog Friends

Where to begin?

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Haley Rhoades. I reside in Kansas City, Missouri. With the support of my husband and two children, I ended my career in education to focus on my dream of becoming an author.

I began my current book in 2003 on pocket notebook pages in the car and on my nightstand. A few times since then, I picked it up to add to it.  I restarted writing it in the summer of 2016.  I am now firmly dedicated to its completion.

I plan to use my blog to discuss my trials and tribulations on my road of discovery towards publication. I am by no means a professional writer. I am seeking the assistance and advice of others to not only assist me, but also my followers. I will share the knowledge I acquire.  Please feel free to add comments and suggestions to help us all.

Haley Rhoades’ writing is another bucket-list item coming to fruition, just like meeting Stephen Tyler and skydiving. As she continues to write romance and young adult books, she plans to complete her remaining bucket-list items, including ghost-hunting, storm-chasing, and bungee jumping. She is a Netflix-binging, Converse-wearing, avidly-reading, traveling geek. A team player, Haley thrived as her spouse’s career moved the family of four eight times to three states. One move occurred eleven days after a C-section. Now with two adult sons, Haley copes with her newly emptied nest by writing and spoiling Nala, her Pomsky. A fly on the wall might laugh as she talks aloud to her fur-baby all day long. Haley’s under five-foot, fun-size stature houses a full-size attitude. Her uber-competitiveness in all things entertains, frustrates, and challenges family and friends. Not one to shy away from a dare, she faces the consequences of a lost bet no matter the humiliation. Her fierce loyalty extends from family, to friends, to sports teams. Haley’s guilty pleasures are Lifetime and Hallmark movies. Her other loves include all things peanut butter, Star Wars, mathematics, and travel. Past day jobs vary tremendously from an elementary special-education para-professional, to a YMCA sports director, to a retail store accounting department, and finally a high school mathematics teacher. Haley resides with her husband and fur-baby in the Kansas City area. This Missouri-born girl enjoys the diversity the Midwest offers. Reach out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or her website…she would love to connect with her readers.
