Haley Whitehall


Haley was telling stories before she could write. When she was four, she woke her parents up to write down her burning ideas. Growing up on John Wayne movies and the Little House on the Prairie books, she has always loved historical fiction.

For ten years Haley developed her writing craft and voice by studying authors such as Avi, Ann Rinaldi, and Mark Twain to name a few. She received her B.A in history through Central Washington University. During all her research, her soul was pulled deeper in the 19th century U.S.

Using her words to transport people back in time continues to give her a thrill. Sometimes she wishes she could escape the present and float down the Mississippi River on a raft. But then again, just writing another historical fiction novel is a much safer journey.

Smashwords book reviews by Haley Whitehall

  • The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide to Character Expression on Aug. 21, 2012

    Every writer should add this resource to their library. Writing character emotions is often difficult and this thesaurus makes it easier to convey what your character is feeling in a fresh way. Worth the money, but I wish there were a few more emotions covered like defiance.
  • Resurrection Flowers on Nov. 20, 2012

    I liked the premise of this book better than the book itself mainly to do with the author's writing style. The plot is very interesting. Rod, a construction worker, dies but isn't dead. He travels the world. He meets up with Aeva, a foreign born who tries to figure out whether he is worthy enough to keep his second chance at life. The book was hard for me to get into at first. It is written in fancy language which is often difficult to read and at times sentences were hard to understand. My brain couldn't keep up with the constant changes. This book will give you a headache if you're not up for a challenging read. It is clearly not written for the average casual reader. Note: I received a free copy of this book to read and review.
  • Follow My Lead (BBW erotic romance) on Nov. 29, 2014

    This was a fun short story from the point of view of a BBW woman during the economic recession. Applying for a job as a stripper was a last resort and she never dreamed she'd find a partner. This story was well written and will leave you wanting more.
