HAYLEY STONE'S Weird West Fantasy Novel MAKE ME NO GRAVE is available in all formats from Aethon Books.

She is a writer, editor, and poet from California. She is best known for her adult sci-fi novel, Machinations, which was chosen as one of Amazon’s Best Sci-fi & Fantasy Books for 2016, and its sequel, Counterpart, which released the same year from Hydra Random House.

Hayley graduated from California State University, Sacramento with a Bachelor’s degree in history—a subject she believes offers a wealth of story inspiration as well as a powerful look into what makes us human. In addition to novels, she writes short stories and speculative poetry. Her short fiction has appeared in Fireside Fiction, Flash Fiction Online, Factor Four, and various anthologies. Her poetry is widely available online from Liminality, New Myths, Eternal Haunted Summer, Star*Line, and more.

Over the course of her career, she has served as a judge for the NYC Midnight Short Story and Flash Fiction Challenges, as a senior acquiring editor for an independent publisher, and as a mentor during Pitch Wars.

Hayley loves to hear from readers and writers.
