We posed a few questions to Darren Shan, writer of 60+ books who manages to churn out terrifying tales at a rapid pace.
See below for the gory details.
1. If you weren’t an author you would be a ______?
Struggling author! If I wasn’t getting paid to write, I would write anyway. To support myself, I’d probably just do temporary office work, as I wouldn’t want a career to distract me.
2. The first book you loved?
The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett. You can find echoes of it in Lord Loss, the first book of my demon series.
