Born in Matapedia, Quebec, Haley pursues her interests across many media, as a poet and author, performer, and art video creator. Her poetry has appeared in numerous North American periodicals, including the Antigonish Review, Northern Lights, and the Literary Storefront. Haley’s videopoem, Dying for the Pleasure, premiered at Pacific Cinémathèque in 2003 and was subsequently screened at the International ArtExpo in Milan, the National Centre for Contemporary Arts in Kalingrad, Russia, and the Gene Siskal Film Centre/Chicago Art Institute. She is currently directing Purple Lipstick. In 2004, with guitarist/sound designer and DJ Roderick Shoolbraid, she produced a series of live shows and an audio CD of poetry and music called Surfing Season, which featured "God's Country" among its tracks.
... is a supple and unusual book. One of Haley's themes is the high price we eagerly pay for technological advances. She locates this idea where it really belongs, which is not in the malleable, debatable imagery of cyberspace, but in the mundanely high-impact world of automobiles.”
