Dianna Hardy is an international bestselling author of dark fantasy fiction (for adults), including urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and magical realism. She is known for her dark themes, and her explicit and emotional way of conveying them.
Poetry was her first love, and among her first publishing successes were the poems Burnt, A Demon in the Making, and I Did Not Know, published by small presses in 1997 when she was in her teens, under her then name Vanessa Dudeney.
Since then, she has written various collections, the one that remains available today, A Silver Kiss (Vampire Poetry) - poems that study the shadow of mankind using the theme of the vampire. A Silver Kiss received praise from the site Vampires.com in 2011.
Her poetry is inspired by love, loss, the beauty found within nature, and the darkness found within humanity.
