2-Minute Interview with Author Haley Hatch Freeman

Haley Hatch Freeman

Meet author Haley Hatch Freeman! 

Haley, who are you as a person versus an author?

One in the same, I say this because my writings thus far have been either my true story or have had great purpose, truth and personal meaning behind them.  

What genre(s) do you write in?

The two books I’ve written are from different genres. My first is my true story about surviving anorexia and experiencing miracles along the way. My second book is a children’s book to help elementary aged children to tweens start to build a healthy body image and to empower them when dealing with life’s unavoidable situations regarding food, self-worth and pressures to look a certain way.

Where do you write your best stuff, and when?

I like to write at home, usually when my children are at school or after they have gone to bed.

Vanilla or chocolate?


What is your preferred manner of writing?

Writing on my laptop.

What is your current book?

From Head to Tummy: The Simple Truth about Food, Media Messages, Self-worth, and Real Beauty. I am working on a second edition of A Future for Tomorrow. I’m adding a couple of chapters and making a few tweaks to the first edition. I’m hoping to have the second edition ready for release by the first of next year.

One piece of advice/wisdom for the world?

My wish is that we, especially as women, would be kinder to ourselves. I think if we each decided to accept and be kinder to ourselves and not as hard on ourselves that would translate to nicer behavior to others and create a massive wave of kindness everywhere. 

Dogs or cats?

Dogs, I have two and I love the little critters!  I usually have one on my lap while I’m writing.

What do you want to be remembered for, or as?

I hope I’m remembered for changing people’s lives for the better and maybe even saving some lives with my story.
