• Meet Darren Shan!!

    22 November 2023

    My fundraiser to raise the funds needed to produce a numbered, hardback, limited edition of my first ever picture book, THE TERRIFIED TROLL, is coming along very nicely. The artist, Eva Byrne, and I set ourselves a €10,000 target, which seemed like a scary sum to be working towards, but with YOUR amazing help, we're almost there, and have passed the 96% mark, with a week still to go -- hurrah!!!


    We created a series of very special PERKS to help us raise the money, and one of those perks is the chance to meet DARREN SHAN in person and hang out with me for a couple of hours! You have a choice of meeting in London (UK) or Dublin (Ireland) or Limerick (also Ireland -- and my home town!). Alternatively, there are also two incredible TOURS to choose from if you prefer, one of Craggaunowen Park in Ireland, which served as inspiration for my book BEC, the other around central London, which served as the backdrop to my ZOM-B series. I'll be your personal guide on both tours, talking about how the books came to be, and detailing some of the scenes that were directly inspired by the two places.


    This is a very rare chance to get to spend some real quality time with me, to chat at length about my books, and (of course!) have your books signed. If you're shy of coming by yourself, you can bring friends or family members for support. I'm very flexible on dates -- once you've bought the perk, we'll chat about days and times that suit us both. We can meet as soon as possible if you're keen to do it swiftly, or we can put it off until much later in 2024 if you want more time to line up the logistics.


    Oh, and if you can't make it to any of the above listed places, I'm offering one-to-one or small-group ZOOM CHATS as well, which can be arranged from wherever you live in the world, so no travel involved. :-)
