Lola Salt is the pen name for two authors: Sarah Alderson and Becky Wicks.

Sarah is better known for her young adult fiction (published by Simon & Schuster) including the critically acclaimed Hunting Lila series (voted in the top ten UK YA novels of all time). She likes to write thriller romance stories about epically hot boys and kick ass girls, no doubt inspired by having grown up on a diet of Buffy and The A-Team. She lives in Bali with her husband and 6 year old daughter.

The film of her first book Hunting Lila is currently in production and she's now working on several screenplays. In 2013 she has two YA novels slated for release, as well as a short story coming out on World Book Day. The Extraordinary Life of Lara Craft (not Croft) is her first adult novel.

Becky Wicks is better known for her hilarious non-fiction travel memoirs - Burqalicioius, Balilicious and the upcoming Latinalicious - which are published by Harper Collins. She is now travelling around Latin America in pursuit of ever more crazy stories to tell and is simultaneously writing her first YA novel.

Becky and Sarah met when a mutual friend introduced them and told them they should hang out when Becky came to Bali to write her new book. So... they did, and after several bottles of wine and a rant about Fifty Shades, they decided that quite clearly the universe had thrown them together for a reason… to write an erotic novel. They started that very afternoon, but ended up laughing too hard when writing the sexy parts...and so their novel morphed from erotica into chicklit.

Several months and bottles of wine later, they finished their first book, and had so much fun doing it they're already on to book 2!

Get a sneak peek at Sarah's new book The Sound (published by Simon & Schuster). It's like Gossip Girl crossed with The Killing only with hotter boys.
