Haley is a Texas-transplant currently holding down the fort in the Midwest. She has literature and women's studies degrees, and she married a northern man with philosophy and French degrees. As a couple, this makes them Big Fun at Parties and also, masters of creating diversions. She's a human rights activist, arts administrator, and writer. Sometimes she writes things that are funny, and sometimes not, but she always has something to say. Her words can be followed over at www.haleyelkins.com/blog/.
