Darren Shan

Last Friday a group of pupils went to Hounsdown School to meet the “Master of Horror” Darren Shan.

Darren started by reading several extracts from his Zom-B books.

This was followed by a question and answer session.  During this we learnt that:

 The Zom-b books are about racism

Darren can take 5-6 years to complete a book (this includes editing) but usually has several on the go

The character Mr Dowling was formed when Darren was travelling around Ireland on a publicity tour and was named after the publicist

Darren doesn’t like spiders

Pupils then had the opportunity to buy a book and get it signed.
