Derek Landy lives near Dublin. Before writing his children's story about a sharply-dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a murderous horror film. "I think my career-guidance teacher is spinning in her grave," he says, "or she would be if she were dead."
Global sales of the Skulduggery Pleasant books are in excess of 5 million copies and the series can now be read in 36 languages. The awards heaped upon the epic adventure series include the Irish Book of the Decade and the Red House Children’s Book Award. Derek Landy has become a ‘golden god’ to his 70k Facebook followers, a fandom unparalleled for its feverish devotion, and already hungry for the next Derek Landy adventure.
