Hayley Barker lives in Essex with her husband, two sons and their dog. When she’s not writing, visiting schools or taking part in author events, she’s usually taking care of the family – running someone to a sports fixture, cheering on at the side-line, cooking, feeding and tidying up or maybe jumping on the trampoline with the kids.
She cannot imagine what her life would be like without literature in it. Before becoming published, she was a secondary school English teacher and books have always played a massive part in her day-to-day to life and have made her the person she is today. Being an author is a dream come true for Hayley and she feels so lucky to be spending every day doing what she loves.
