C U R R E N T L Y  (31st October, 2017): 
- trying to catch up on my TO READs
- working on several new stories

A B O U T :
I'm Renée Shantel, also known as Haylie Jaed, an aspiring author who writes young adult, fantasy, and whatever else takes my fancy. I am also a freelance editor. I had my first short story published in May, 2017.

I have been writing since age eleven, participate in NaNoWriMo yearly, and am currently working on finally telling all the stories of the characters shouting for attention inside my head.

When I'm not writing I can be found shooting and developing photographic film, casually learning to play the violin, or smothering my cat with love.

R E Q U E S T S :
I do not accept read requests. I find it both unfair when you ask me to read your work when you don't read mine, and I hate turning people down simply because they've written something that doesn't interest me.

If you follow me or comment on my chapters, I automatically click that username and look at your posted works. If I like what I see, it goes on my TO READ list. Simple as that.

I do not take cover requests.

C O M I N G S O O N :

Breathe [paranormal/mystery]
Madison [mystery/thriller]
The Angel Trilogy [paranormal]

NaNoWriMo is seriously kicking my butt. I haven't written this religiously since the end of 2013, when I finished the first draft of "Lost". As such, I just want to shoot out an apology to everybody...
