International bestselling author of The Witching Pen series, and the Eye Of The Storm series.
Dianna combines a titillating mix of paranormal romance, urban and dark fantasy into her writing, to bring you stories that are action-packed, fast-paced and not short of heat, with the focus on both character development and the plot. She writes full-length novels and short fiction. She has also written poetry (first published in 1997) and esoteric books and articles. Nowadays, she chooses to concentrate on writing fiction.
Although quite active online, Dianna prefers the quiet company of nature and animals to the hustle and bustle of people. She loves anything paranormal (she doesn't really consider it "para"), organic food, walking barefoot, the smell of the woods after rain, and summer days.
However, she is also sustained by coffee, chocolate and the occasional vodka.
She currently lives in Surrey, England with her partner and their daughter, where she devotes her time to parenting, publishing and writing.

Once again the wondrous mind of Author Dianna Hardy has turned out a phenomenal book, in this gem “The Sands of Time” (this one so far is my favorite in the series) book #2 in The Witching Pen Novellas!!! I would personally truly love for this novella to become a full length book, actually it would be real nice that they all be combined together. *flutterz wingz n nods head*
The Sands of Time picks right up where book #1 The Witching Pen left off.
Amy who is a witch/shifter has been kidnapped by Elena’s grandfather, Etienne. He sends Amy to the year 1956 - Pueblo who is blood bond to Amy is searching desperately for her, but he can’t “feel” her anymore !!! Not in HIS space in time…
With the help of Amy’s friends: Elena, Mary, Karl and Gwain they are doing everything to save her.
I’m trying not to give to much away about the story, which is hard for me especially with this novella, because it is sooooo good.
But, I will tell you this, The Sands of Time is not just about one main character, nope there are several!! I counted 6. Some may say more or less. Each person or couple in this case have their own story going on. Each story vital to the complete package that makes up this novella. So much depth.
Pueblo - Shanka demon and human shifter
Amy - Shifter and witch
Gwain - Angel
Mary - ummm, not sure yet :-/
Karl - Angel and human
Elena - Witch (most powerful) and Shanka demon
The Sands of Time has pretty much a taste for everyone’s ideal read, you’ll find shifters, angels, witches, demons, wicked spells, portals, time travel and of course love and betrayal. (yep, I think that just about course it all) :-D
** This book does have some sexually explicit scenes ** but to me, without them this novella just wouldn’t be the same.
I highly recommend The Sands of Time as a spectacular paranormal romance read!!!
