Shaley Moreira - Writer's Hive Media

Shaley Moreira

Shaley is an aspiring author and avid reader. She began her Instagram page @2reador2write in order to share her two greatest passions: reading and writing. When she’s not working on her novel, she’s busy reading others! She loves sharing her thoughts on books she’s read and creating “book art” which consists of making shapes and scenes out of books and attempting to squash herself into weird and challenging positions! When she’s not making crazy book shapes, writing or reading, she’s attempting to keep her curious 18-month-old alive and out of trouble as a stay at home mom.
