About the Author

Photo of Author Hayley Morton

I am an author, librarian, educator, and yoga teacher. As a child I loved to create stories but, during my teens, a lack of self confidence saw me shy away from writing.

Years later my manager challenged me to write a picture book for a school education program. The result was the Captain Plop series.

It was only after pursuing a number of self-development avenues, I realised that it had been my own thoughts and feelings stopping me from doing, and being, what I really wanted.

It was this experience which led me to write ThinkBeings for children and Peace of the Puzzle for adults.
