S.M. Hardy is the dark alter ego of fantasy writer Sue Tingey. Sue grew up in South East London and worked in banking for more years than she cares to remember before turning her attention to arboricultural management. She has now given up the day job to allegedly spend more time with her husband; he however has noticed that an awful lot more writing appears to be going on. She currently lives in Torquay, South Devon.

She admits storytelling is her obsession and The Evil Within is her first paranormal mystery novel.
