Don McCauley of the Free Publicity Focus Group recently interviewed Hayley Rose for The Authors Show Radio. The show airs on April 15 at The Authors Show site.
Hayley Rose is the author of 'FIFO Fifty States'. Award-winning author, Hayley Rose, grew up in the beach side town of Pacific Palisades, California. In the early 1990's she traveled the U.S. with her band Crush Violet. In 1994, after a family reunion, she was inspired to write a children's book. Looking for a cute and catchy name for a main character, she kept hearing "first in, first out". Hence, the name Fifo was born. Hayley's mother would often ask her what she wanted to be when she grew up, so Hayley decided to start her series of "Fifo" books with that very question. Her first book, Fifo "When I Grow Up" was published in 2002. Her love of travel inspired her second book in the Fifo series, Fifo "50 States", published in 2010.
Along with writing children's books, Hayley has been working in entertainment business management for the past 15 years, specializing in concert touring. She has worked with many "A list" musicians including Michael Jackson, Rod Stewart and Candlebox just to name a few. Hayley hopes to one day soon release an album of children's songs. She is a currently a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
