Hayley Vaughters graduated from the University of Tennessee with a bachelor’s degree in English with a focus in creative writing. She has been writing since she was a kid. Whether she was creating otter-themed parody stories on her family computer or making four-panel comics for her middle school friends, the desire to create has always been with her. These days, she writes stories in her cavern-like room, illuminated solely by the dim light of her computer monitor. Hayley cites her biggest influences as cartoons, video games, and weird music, with a hint of literary fiction thrown in for good measure.
