item coming to fruition, just like meeting Stephen Tyler and Ozzie Smith,
ghost-hunting, and skydiving. As she continues to write contemporary romance,
she also writes sweet romance and young adult books under the name Brooklyn
Bailey, as well as children’s books under the name Gretchen Stephens. She plans
to complete her remaining bucket-list items including storm-chasing, meeting
Joe Montana, and visiting Greece.
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, fifteen times to four 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. A new grandma
known as “Gigi”, she spend many evenings on video calls with her grandson
Murphy or traveling to Okoboji Iowa to spend time with her latest obsession.
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 radio station DJ, 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 Des Moines area. A new grandma known as “Gigi”, she spend many evenings on
video calls with her grandson Murphy or traveling to spend time with her latest
obsession. This Missouri-born girl enjoys the diversity the Midwest offers.
