Hermione Applegate and The Secret Under The House, by Richard Egan

Hermione Applegate and The Secret Under The House, published by Talisman Publishing in conjunction with Lulu (www.lulu.com), is the first in a new series targeted at older children.

Manchester, United Kingdom, August 20, 2007 --(PR.com)-- The series chronicles the life of Hermione Applegate, beginning half way through her final year at secondary school. Until now life has been quite ordinary for the 15-year-old schoolgirl, but all that is about to change. A new girl has just started in her class and sinister-looking men are asking questions about her. And why do her parents suddenly take an interest when one of her friends starts behaving oddly? Do either of these things have anything to do with the strange noises Hermione has started hearing at night, apparently coming from underneath the house?

With elements of science-fiction, fantasy, horror and the supernatural, this is Torchwood and The X-Files for a younger audience.
