I am the author of fantasy and supernatural crime novels. I write fantasy under the name Sue Tingey and my supernatural crime novels are in the name of SM Hardy.

The Evil Within

On the brink of a breakdown, Jim Hawkes seeks a much needed rest in the Devonshire countryside. But Slyford St James is far from the peaceful haven he was hoping for. Haunted by ghosts of the past and endangered by a real world threat in the present, it soon becomes apparent that true evil lurks within.

Evil Never Dies

Jed Cummings is not stranger to the supernatural although he would wish otherwise. When he receives a ominous request for help from an old friend, Simon Pomeroy, he is intrigued. Simon’s brother has been brutally murdered and he wants Jed to use his unique abilities to find the killer. As Jed begins to investigate, a gruesome warning reveals dark and dangerous family secrets - secrets that threaten the safety of them all.


The first novel in the Soulseer Chronicles Fantasy series. With no family and no friends, Lucky’s psychic ability has always made her an outcast. The only person she can rely on is her best friend, Kayla - and even she is a ghost - or is she? Kayla is not all she seems, then again neither is Lucky.


Cursed is the second book in the Soulseer Chronicles trilogy. Lucky knows she has some hard choices to make, who will be her consort - Jinx, the Deathbringer, or Jamie, the Guardian? Before she can even start working on that conundrum, Kayla is kidnapped and her guard slaughtered by the Sicarii, a death cult of assassins for hire. It soon becomes clear Kayla is being used as bait to trap Lucky, but who is responsible? Top of the list is Amaliel, the court torturer, a dangerous enemy to have - but Lucky’s guards can be just as dangerous - and as for Lucky - it could be that fighting to save someone she loves is the incentive she needs to come into her own powers- powers that would change her life forever.


The final novel of the Soulseer Chronicles trilogy. Lucky was dragged into the Underlands against her will, but there she discovered a whole new world. Discovering her ghostly best friend was in fact her daemon half sister came as a shock, but falling in love with two men wasn’t in her plan either. For once in her life she’s truly happy, but then Jinx disappears, captured by her enemies who intend to use him as weapon of mass destruction in both the human and daemon world. Lucy turns to Jamie for help in getting Jinx back, only he has his own orders - he and his fellow Guardians must get Jinx back - dead or alive. Leaving Lucky no choice - if she is to save Jinx she must learn to use her own burgeoning powers - and fast!
