ABOUT   HALEY

School%20Picture%202019_edited.jpg

Haley Healey grew up among the lakes, white pines and rocky Canadian Shield of Muskoka, Ontario. She attended Laurentian University for an undergraduate degree and Vancouver Island University for a teaching degree. After university, she worked as a tree planter, an outdoor educator, and a physical education teacher.  Eventually, she earned a Master's degree in counselling psychology and is now a high school counsellor.

Although she's always adored books and reading, Haley didn't set out to be a writer. She was inspired to write about women from Vancouver Island's past after touring Cougar Annie's garden after a hiking trip. Her first book, On Their Own Terms: True Stories of Trailblazing Women of Vancouver Island, was a BC Bestseller for numerous weeks. Currently, Haley is working on a thriller that takes place on Vancouver Island.
 
Haley lives in Nanaimo, British Columbia and enjoys cycling, trail running, and exploring Vancouver Island's backcountry.
