Haley Walsh tried acting, but decided the actor's life was not for her. Instead, she became a successful graphic designer in Los Angeles, her hometown. After fifteen years of burning money in the '80s and early '90s, she retired from the graphics industry and turned her interests toward writing. She became a freelance newspaper reporter, wrote articles for quirky magazines, published award-winning short stories, and now writes an acclaimed GLBT mystery series, the Skyler Foxe Mysteries. She's lived all her life in southern California, sampling wines and chomping chocolate. Yeah, it's a living.
