    This is a newspaper report from the NEW MILTON ADVERTISER (1st November 2006) of a visit I made to Newham Bookshop during my tour to promote Bec.

    BESTSELLING children's writer Darren Shan met some of his young fans in Newham. Real name Darren O' Shaughnessy, he is famous for his books on vampires. He has also topped the adult bestseller charts in Hungary and Taiwan. His books have sold more than ten million copies.Darren came to Newham Bookshop in Barking Road, Plaistow, to meet readers and sign copies of his books, including the latest, called Bec. Some youngsters also came armed with their own copies of Darren s previous tales, which he also signed for them. Shop manager Vivian Archer said "Darren's a huge hero, especially to boys. It's a major coup that we got him. The event was fantastic. We had 100 very excited children queuing for a long time to meet Darren, and we sold at least 200 copies of his books."
