Hayley Swinson was born and raised in Columbia, SC, but has never felt more at home than when she is on the road. She attended the University of Richmond, VA where she received a bachelor’s degree in French and Creative Writing and often worked backstage as a dresser/costume assistant.
After graduating, her wanderlust led her to Montreal, QC, Canada. She arrived with no job, no place to live, and with no contacts, but she had a work visa! Her very first job in the city was painting a mechanic’s garage, and she has done just about everything since.
After being accepted in the IATSE Local Union 491 as a costumer, she moved to Wilmington, NC to work in the film industry. She found some success there, but after a year and a half, decided to give her real passion, creative writing, a shot. She was accepted into the University of Edinburgh to study for a masters in Creative Writing and now lives in Edinburgh, UK.
She loves music, crafts/sewing, horseback riding, fashion, modeling, theatre, writing/reading, traveling, yoga, meeting new people, web comics, lomography, playing guitar, social media, language & cultures and will try just about anything once.
