Haley is a freelance writer with a Bachelor of Communication majoring in both marketing and journalism. It is this oddball education that led to the collision of the light and the dark side of the publishing industry. 

A background in print journalism and advertising copywriting is often frowned upon because, some would argue, where the fairer profession is grounded in informing, educating and entertaining the public the other is purely rooted in the pursuit of revenue raising (gasp!). 

It's a combination that may raise eyebrows. But it's one that can lend a more creative edge to feature writing. And let's face it, one can't exist without the other. This symbiotic relationship is much like life - there's always shades of grey.
