A native to Minnesota, Hallie grew up in the small town of Miesville. She went to college at Hamline University in St. Paul, MN, where she majored in English with a concentration in creative writing. Upon graduation, Hallie moved abroad to teach English in South Korea. After one year, she returned to the States and is currently earning her Master's of Fine Arts in Writing from Hamline. When Hallie isn't busy working or writing, she loves to spend time outside. Unlike most Minnesotans, Hallie enjoys Minnesota Winters, as downhill skiing becomes the seasonal love of her life.
