I’m Hayley from England and I live in Manchester. I’m 23 and am currently doing a Masters in creative writing at Edge Hill Uni, which is just outside Liverpool. I graduated from my BA in creative writing and English Lit last year. I love writing and reading, my dream is to become a published writer. I write mainly vampire novels as I love horror and the supernatural. I also write fantasy and other horror novels. Recently I started writing in the slightly different vein of crime horror as a way to expand my writing. I read a lot – just check it out on Goodreads.com! My favourite authors are Anne Rice and J R Ward.
I’ve not been blogging for very long, it’s only been about 4 years or so and I got into it by setting up the sister blog to this one by one of my tutors. since then I’ve had two other smaller blogs- one about cactus Bob which is on here and the other about a vampire which is on Blogger.com. I also wrote a very popular and successful blog for my uni and some of my posts can still be seen there. This blog as all about my uni and getting people to come and choice it as their uni. I got paid to write it and I loved sharing my experience with others. So when I got asked to stop writing my blog, I just knew I’d have to start-up another one to replace it! This one is much freer though and so it got called Musings. I still work at my uni as a student guide and love taking tour groups around the campus.
I’m also a massive music fan and love Heavy Metal and rock. My favourite band is Iron Maiden. I find that the music helps me to write and its great for blocking out background noises. I also love cooking and gardening, so a lot of this gets featured on my blogs! I also like manga and anima, having got into it through my little brother and I’m currently exploring Japanese writers.
Lastly, I’m hoping that this blog can become as popular as my old one!
