D.E. Hardesty, has been studying spirituality for over forty years. He started writing about happiness in response to his daughter's questions about what to do in life. As she entered the critical "quarterlife crisis" years of the early twenties, she had many questions about how to be happy, what goals to pursue, and what to study in school. As he says in the preface to his first book, Finding Your Power to Be Happy, "I had found my path to happiness, and I was living it. She was just starting on that path. What should I tell her?" His first book is an extended answer to her questions.
His second book, Be Happier in One Hour, continues exploring the ways to find happiness in our lives.
About his writing he says
"They say that if everyone lights a single candle there will be light and peace in the world. This is my candle."
D.E. Hardesty lives in Northern California with his wife Beth and their cat Patrick.
