I am an aspiring author and contributor here on Coffee House Writers, Functionally Fictional and a character blog called West Oak, OR (coming soon). I am currently going to school online to get my BA in English Creative Writing at Southern New Hampshire University. I am an avid reader and have been writing since I was a child.

You can see my blog at https://hayleygreen.blog and my character blog at https://westoakor.com (coming soon).
