maria hayden

Maria Hayden is a poet and children’s author based in the beautiful county of Devon in the South West of England.  She shares her home with her husband, daughter, three cats and one melodramatic pug called Chloe.  

Her children’s books were first published in 2016 when she moved to Devon in the same year and became inspired by the surrounding rolling hills, and peaceful tranquillity.   

Her previous career was in the manic world of retail buying for a number of large UK retailers and to be able to write full time was her lifelong dream.   

Her current new poetry series moves her away from writing for children and into world of emotional writing.  There are three books in the series so far, ‘Poems about love’, Poems about the dark’ and ‘Poems about the light’. ‘ Poems about love’ is available now, with the further two titles due for release soon.
