She graduated from Anatolian University in 1994. She worked as a teacher in Afyon from 1996 to 2002. Since 2002, she has been working as a teacher in Eskisehir.

Her story book, Touch (2006) shared the first prize in Naci Girginsoy Story Book Competition with Figen Alkaç. Since 2011, she has been working in the writing team of the journal, Dünden Bugünden Edebiyat.

Her Touch story portrays a man who goes into the flat of a woman every day and tries to know her through her house. Noylan uses wide range of characters from every age, class or gender and depicts one day or one incident in their lives. Knife and The Sound of Drum on the Roof are the stories that exemplify her realist style. Even though she seems to choose everyman as her heroes, by using methods like making her heroes identify themselves with animals, she shows the uniqueness of every single life. Rifki and Transparent Wings are the stories where she takes animals as the centre of her stories or makes her heroes identify themselves with the animals. Her poems are also affected by her realist style.
