International bestselling author of The Witching Pen series, and the Eye Of The Storm series.
Dianna combines a titillating mix of contemporary and paranormal romance, as well as 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 books and articles on alternative and metaphysical healing. 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.
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 the full length story of Elena and Karl and it starts when Karl is 27. For a long time, Elena and Karl have kept their relationship purely platonic due to circumstances "beyond their control" but things are about to change.
This story is full of action, romance, drama and suspense. You find out little snippets as you read along and the characters are built up. There is no insta-love in this book, just a deep and true friendship that could always have been something more if things had been different.
Absolutely brilliant and an ending which definitely makes you reach for the next book in the series!

What a phenomeanl book
Thank you Author Dianna Hardy for this phenomenal “Gift” of The Witching Pen. I actually read “Wilted” first and wanted to get hold of the others to read as a series. Now here I am writing this review, having done the review for Wilted already.
To follow is my fair and unbiased opinion of “The Witching Pen.”
After a talk with her mother, Elena learns that its absolutely impossible to have a “normal” relationship wit men. The stakes are high and the losses are great if she does. (I won‘t tell you why or what because of spoilers).
Elena is a thirteenth generation witch, and she is a VERY powerful witch at that. She has always kept to her true powers hidden, her mother and best friend since kids, Karl are the only ones to know her secret.
I will tell you that Karl has loved Elena since they were young but Elena has always shied away from romantic interludes, and keeps him at a distance… so she won’t be tempted.
The Witching Pen, although is a novella it reads as a full length book. There is so much action happening with all the characters on every page.
You’ll find a storyline that effortlessly flows across the page as you quickly devour each one.
Angels… Demons… and Witches, what a combination!!! AWESOME mix.
Fabulous, entertaining and outstanding series - A friendship that blossoms into love, with unpredictable consequences.
Elena soon discovers that her life as she knows it, and what she’s been told is a lie. That there is so much more than what everyone has told her about! Dark secrets of her family are discovered.
She comes into possession of a pen, yep… The Witching Pen where she can write the future, and to have it come true.. I‘d say, be real careful Elena :-/ . With the pen, a evil demon is attached who invades, haunts and tries to seduce Elena while she sleeps.. Dreams.
I’m going to stop here before I give much more away. If you read the blurb of this book you are going to be hooked just as I was!!!
A must read paranormal romance jammed packed with spectacular suspense. I suggest that if you haven’t had the chance to read this series yet, then take the time and get started.. You won’t be disappointed

I loved this book! It is an adult, paranormal love/life story. The characters are very real to life with real life issues. It is a story of love, loss, family and friendship. I highly recommend it!
