Manel Loureiro is a Spanish writer, journalist and lawyer. He studied Law at the University of Santiago de Compostela. He has worked as a TV host in Galician television, and he has also worked as a screenwriter. He writes for the newspapers Diario de Pontevedra, Diario ABC and El Mundo. He is also a collaborator of Cadena SER and of the magazine GQ España. He has a section in the TV program Cuarto Milenio in the Spanish TV channel Cuatro (Mediaset España Comunicación).



Loureiro specializes in terror, a genre that is not particularly mainstream in Spain´s literature realm. Despite this, he still manages to be successful.  His first novel started like a blog on the internet and, due to its great success, it was eventually published. Loureiro’s novels have been published in more than 30 countries and translated into more than 20 languages. He is one of the few contemporary Spanish authors who have managed to sell more than 200.000 copies in the United States, together with Javier Sierra and Carlos Ruiz Zafón. He was also the first Spanish author to appear in the top 3-bestselling list in the US only due to the pre-orders of his book The Last Passenger. In 2014, he was the only non-Anglo-Saxon author to appear in the list of the 100-bestselling authors in the US.

Loureiro was, together with Juan Gómez-Jurado, one of the promoters of the initiative 1libro1euro, which had a great response in social media.
