"I was born in London in 1972 and moved to Ireland when I was 6 years old, where I've lived ever since. I always wanted to be a writer - I've loved telling stories since I was a child. I started out writing books for adults, and managed to get a couple published. One day, on a whim, I decided to try a book for children. The result was Cirque Du Freak. Much to my surprise, it took off, and I became a de facto children's author! Since then I've used my ill-gotten gains to buy lots of comic-strip art and travel the world. When I'm not working or traveling, I like watching movies. I've even been known to read the odd book or two."
- Darren Shan
Darren is currently working on his fifth novel in his bonechilling Demonata series, coming in Fall 2007.
Praise for BEC "All the spells, severed body parts and horror you expect from Shan, with a nail-biting and shocking finish." Waterstone's Books Quarterly "To my shame, this is the first of Shan's books I have read; I now understand why they are so popular... Very enjoyable." Books for Keeps
