About our featured author

H.L. Macfarlane hails from Balmaha by Loch Lomond in Scotland. After studying for eight years at the University of Glasgow and obtaining a BSc (Hons) in genetics and a PhD in synthetic biology, Hayley hung up her lab coat for good and took up a pen. Throughout the process of writing and then publishing her own books she grew to love the publishing industry as a whole, and decided to become a publisher for other people’s stories as well as her own. Alongside writing and publishing, Hayley also designs book covers, takes on art commissions and ghostwrites. Where does she find the time?! Nobody knows…not even her.
