The Screencraft Fellowship said of Haley’s work: “Believable dialogue is one of the hardest things to master in screenwriting, yet all of Haley’s characters have distinct voices.”
Haley lives in New York City with her husband, dog, and a chicken soup pot that's so large it can only be washed in the bathtub. She is currently seeking representation.
