A San Francisco Bay Area resident for the past eleven years, Donald Hardy lives on an elderly but adorable sailboat with a very conversational Schnauzer named Schultz. He moved from the east coast, where he had lived since childhood, while trapped in the grip of a midlife crisis of Biblical proportions. He is currently considering embarking upon pirate raids on uninhabited islands in the Bay in his free time.
He began writing after moving west and dumping his television, and has gradually expanded his output. He edited Time Space Magic, by Taylor Ellwood, for Immanion Press, and was published in Paws And Reflect by Alyson Press. His first published novel, Lovers’ Knot, is being released this fall by Running Press, and he is currently working on a stage adaptation of Pride and Prejudice (with no zombies, thank you very much).
When he isn’t writing -- or catering to the demands of Schultz -- he can be found onstage or in rehearsal at the Butterfield 8 theater company in Concord, CA, usually performing in Shakespeare with a twist. On certain weekends, he’s an avid Renaissance (Faire) Man — proving that even when he’s offstage, he’s onstage.
