The complete Witching Pen trilogy (also available as three separate books).
Elena, a thirteenth generation witch, is the most powerful witch on the planet; Amy is hidden from her true self, and Mary feels the pain of mankind.
On the appearance of a magic pen, three women uncover family secrets and deep betrayal, to discover they are more than they’ve been led to believe – for better or worse.
Alongside the men, demons and angels who love them, they are thrown into a supernatural world where time becomes muddied, where new and ancient merge, where forged bonds cannot be broken, and matters of the heart are never black and white.
And then, there’s the impending apocalypse.
Unique, fun, fast-paced, sexy and passionate, this is paranormal romance that combines the dark with the light, and the sweet with the gritty.
THE WITCHING PEN: It’s hard being the most powerful witch on the planet. It’s even harder when you’re a twenty-five year old virgin who’ll lose all of that power the moment you sleep with someone … that’s why Elena’s never slept with her best friend and flatmate, Karl, despite the true feelings they harbour for each other. But on discovery of a magic pen, Elena’s life is about to get a whole lot worse…
THE SANDS OF TIME: “Elizabeth” has no idea who she really is, Amy has gone missing without a trace, and Pueblo is going out of his mind trying to find the witch he accidentally bonded with. As he enlists the help of angels and demons alike, Elizabeth begins to remember… But what she uncovers may just have her wanting to turn away from who she really is … for good.
THE DEMON BRIDE: Mary has finally discovered who she really is, and what that means for the human race. What Mary doesn’t know, is that Gwain has been searching for her for over ten thousand years, and had lost all hope of finding her. Now that he has her, he’s faced with an impossible choice: does he save the woman who altered his very existence, or does he sacrifice her to save mankind?
But the fairy queen finds herself cemented within humanity and struggling with human emotions, and her right-hand-man, Lucifer, has secrets which are causing fissions among every race.
Meanwhile, Karl and Elena struggle with newly discovered powers; Katarra is hell-bent on freeing her tribe from Lokoli’s curse, and two men will stop at nothing to protect their unborn child – the Messiah of the New Age – and the woman they love.
Far to the East, the fallen Archangel Michael is fighting for the one he holds above all others.
The Last Dragon is about to rise and seal everyone’s future, which depends solely on its survival … or its extinction.
Dianna combines a titillating mix of paranormal romance and urban 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 both full-length novels and short fiction. She has also written poetry and esoteric books and articles.
Although quite active online, Dianna is a self-confessed hermit, preferring the 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 lives in the UK with her partner and their daughter, where she devotes her time to parenting, publishing and writing.

The Challenge of Writing About a New World
First of all, thank you, Bella, for having me on your blog – I am a huge fan of Paranormal Book Club on Facebook
Secondly, if you are planning to but haven’t yet, this blog post contains SPOILERS for The Witching Pen series.
Fans of The Witching Pen series will know that I’m writing The Last Dragon – its spin-off novel – which is set at a time when an apocalypse has [just] taken place. Hmmm … maybe I didn’t think this through…
What kind of world is it? What are my characters going through? Is survival something that’s easy or difficult? Is the apocalypse what anyone expected, or does it bring a few surprises?
Let me just officially say that I feel challenged! I must like setting hard tasks for myself because this is one. I know what the story is going to entail – the hard part is telling the story of how all the characters get from point A, to B, C and D in an apocalyptic setting.
So, what do you expect to find when you read a story that is set in an apocalypse? Do you like apocalyptic stories? If yes, why?
Ironically, I’m not a fan of reading apocalyptic or dystopian novels. But writing one? Yeah – that’s fun. And hard. In some ways, I don’t want to concentrate on the apocalypse itself, but on the story and how it has to unravel. The fact that it’s set in a new world is just a bonus.
The Last Dragon is released on 4th October. It is strongly recommended that you read The Witching Pen series first. You can read all about the series at www.thewitchingpen.co.uk or at www.diannahardy.com
