Professional Experience

A wordsmith from day one (or so my family says of the very precocious little me), I'm a spelling champion and an anagram whiz. Fortunately, this also translates into real-world skills, like writing and editing. Whether covering mail-order dessert taste-testing, the world of a caddie, the history of needlepoint samplers, life at an inner-city high school, or alternative workouts, I make stories large and small engaging. I often cover travel, lifestyle, fitness, health, and profile stories, but I've yet to find a topic I can't write about. My extensive work as a copy editor and fact-checker means my text comes back clean and well researched. Whether you need pithy front-of-book copy or an interview-heavy feature, I can turn stories around quickly and on time. Learn more at www.haleyshapley.com.
