Hi everyone! I’m Hayley Reese Chow, the author of Odriel’s Heirs—the 2020 winner of the Florida Author Project. I also have short and flash fiction featured in Lite Lit One, The Drabble, Bewildering Stories, Teleport Magazine, and Rogue Blades Entertainment’s omnibus, AS YOU WISH!

Until recently though, I’ve mostly done a lot of things that have nothing at all to do with writing. My hat collection includes mother, wife, engineer, USAF veteran, reservist, four-time All American fencer, 100 mile ultramarathoner, triathlete, world traveler, voracious reader, and super nerd. I currently dodge hurricanes in Florida with two small wild boys, my long-suffering husband, and my miniature ragehound.

But at night, when the house is still, I write.



If you’d like to learn more about me, I’ve had the honor of participating in a few interviews around the web.

If you want to peek in on a fun conversation I had with Jeff Bacon on DIY writer you can find it on Youtube, Podbean, Spotify, Stitcher, or Tunein. I think we covered ragehounds, write/life balance, social media, & even cussing! All while I hid from my kids in my closet. 😂

If you want to learn more about me and my self-publishing lessons learned , you can check out my author interview at A New Look on Books!

If you want to learn a little about my experiences as a collegiate athlete, a veteran, a runner, and pretty much everything else, you can check out my podcast interview on Ronin Uncensored!
