ABOUT Lauren Hammond

I have been writing since I was ten years old. My first novel, The Aloria Chronicles was published in 2007. My second Novel Love Sucks was released from Punkin House Press in August of 2010. I live my life by this everyday motto: Trying isn't failing, you've failed if you haven't tried.


In England during the seventeen hundreds, Cara Jones had her human life ended for her and she became a creature of the night. One moment she's an adolescent young woman living her life, the next she's lurking in the streets at night looking for her next meal. The vampire slayings in England became so brutal the whole race was nearly wiped out. So Cara and the clan she called her extended family fled to the U.S. to make a home. They kept to themselves and stayed out of trouble by feeding on recently deceased corpses and cleaning out blood supplies at local hospitals. When one of the clan members makes a mistake, they are once again being hunted and Cara is the only one who makes it out alive. Cara is officially the last vampire on earth. So when Cara awakes from a two hundred year slumber, she awakes to a new city, new people, and a new way of life. Cara sets out on a journey to find her soul mate, the one person who is designed for her. Along the way she encounters a zany new friend, a jealous co worker, and a man whom she can't live without. Dr. Jared Sayers is her destiny. Will Jared give up everything he knows to be with Cara? Or will she wander the earth for the rest of eternity alone?

This book started out as a screenplay and has evolved into so much more. Love Sucks chronicles the life of a newborn vampire from her birth in the 1700's until she awakens in the year 2010. Most importantly, it puts the readers into the main character's shoes. I wanted my readers to ask themselves: What would I do if I woke up buried in the ground, alone, not knowing who or what I had become?

This is an interesting story that gives a different take on the vampire we are all so used to. We see a vampire in the modern world in a mainstream job, cooking, doing laundry and trying her best to live a happy life and finding a well deserved romance.~ Bitten by Books
