About Dianna Hardy

Dianna Hardy is an international bestselling author of (cross-genre) fantasy fiction, most notable for her dark paranormal fantasy and the raw, intense Eye of the Storm series. But her heart-warming Once Times Thrice series proves she thrives in the light as much as the dark. Whatever your poison, what she loves most is to bring you stories that are action-packed, fast-paced and not short of heat, with the focus on character development, relationship dynamics, and the plot. She writes full-length novels and short 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.

Having graduated from Richmond Drama School (London) in '98, she spent the next few years in a multitude of jobs (both acting and non-acting), studying anything that fascinated her, searching her soul, and finally found her passion where it had always been: at the end of a pen.

She currently lives in South Hampshire (United Kingdom) with her fiancé and their daughter, where she writes full-time.

This is a short story about a young witch called Elena, her best friend Karl, who she secretly has feelings for, and some bad news that she receives from her mother.

This book is surprisingly well written, and gives a great feel for the characters and what trials they are likely to face in the following books of the series. I really liked Elena, and her strength in the face of adversary, and I'm interested to find out how she will deal with the challenges facing her.

This story is short and sweet, and definitely leaves you wanting more!

I was given this book in return for an honest review. Wilted is the prequel to the Witching Pen novella. It will give you a brief background on the main characters from the book. Elena and Karl who are best friends and share Elena's secret. She is a 13th generation witch and possible the most powerful witch ever. Her mother also holds a secret, one that could shatter everything and everyone. Super easy read.

A short story prequel to The Witching Pen Novellas.

A quick read introducing you to Elena and Karl, and gives the reader an insight into an important moment of their past.

Having read this prequel after finishing all three of the novellas, my heart went out to Katherine, Elena’s mum. Due to Dianna Hardy’s amazing writing style, the reader can feel the pain of both Elena and Katherine, and felt like an extra piece of the puzzle.

A SHORT lovely read.

This was a great 30 minute short read for me. Wilted pretty much gives you some inside information about Karl and Elena and what she is told by her mother. Which if you read the novella The Witching Pen you get told in that one what happens if Elena has sex.

You don't have to read this book first before The Witching Pen, but Wilted is a wonderful little story about the two main characters that are in the other book.

This book is a little insight on Karl and Elena's relationship, and back when they were teenagers. You can just read the story and see that they love each other.
