A long-time fantasy reader, Janice Hardy always wondered about the darker side of healing. For her fantasy trilogy THE HEALING WARS, she tapped into her own dark side to create a world where healing was dangerous, and those with the best intentions often made the worst choices. Her trilogy includes THE SHIFTER, BLUE FIRE, and DARKFALL. She lives in Georgia with her husband, three cats, and one very nervous freshwater eel. You can visit her online at her website or chat with her about writing on her blog, The Other Side of the Story.
