Today I'm pleased to introduce you to author Lauren Algeo:
Q: Tell us a little about yourself.
A: Hi, my name's Lauren and I'm a twenty-eight year old graphic designer from London, England. I currently write part-time on my commute to work and at weekends but would love to write full-time one day. I'm obsessed with books and films, particularly anything horror-related.
Q: When did you start writing, and why?
A: I started writing when I was young, mainly just short stories, but I'd always wanted to write a novel. I love reading and it was my dream to see my own book alongside all the others on my bookcase.
Q: What do you write, and why? What do you enjoy about what you write?
A: I mainly write horror as it's my favourite genre.I love anything scary! My favourite author is Stephen King and I love watching TV shows like The Walking Dead and American Horror Story.
Q: What is your latest book or series? Any forthcoming books?
A: I published the first part of the Hikers trilogy, Hikers - Part One: Power in January 2013, followed by the second part, Part Two: Passion, in December 2013. The third book, Part Three: Politics, will be available late 2014. I'll be releasing a prequel/accompanying book to the trilogy, Brewer's Journal, next month.
Q: A fun fact you would like your readers to know about you or your book.
A: My boyfriend is a cardiac nurse and I made him answer some very strange questions during my research for Hikers Part One and Two! I also got restricted from the internet several times too.
Q: Blog/site link, and where your book is available.

It starts slowly. Merely a faint scratch in a deep part of your mind. A whispered word, little more than a sigh. But it gets louder, until the voice inside is all you can hear; manipulating, seducing, consuming. Then it’s time.
Three years ago Scott Brewer had everything: a beautiful wife, a successful career as a Detective Inspector, a nice house. Then two pivotal events changed his life forever. First, he lost his wife Karen to a brain tumour, then he lost his mind to a hiker. A member of a family of supernatural assassins he now spends his days hunting and trying unsuccessfully to kill.
A mass shooting at Waterloo station brings Brewer back to London, and to the hiker who nearly killed him. He manages to save a young girl from suicide at the will of his mind-controlling enemy and reluctantly allows her to join him on his mission. Georgie Duncan is a moody teenager with a turbulent past, sharp tongue and her fair share of tragedy. They form an unlikely friendship and must learn to work together to find a method of killing the seemingly invincible hikers.
Their journey takes them across the country, and perilously close to danger, as they move ever nearer to their final battle – defeating the most powerful hiker of all, the Grand.
