Darren Shan Interview

Darren Shan needs no introduction for his thousands of readers around the world, thanks to the success of his Saga of Darren Shan series, set in a world of vampires at war. Scottish Book Trust's Michael Merillo, a Shan fan himself, interviewed the author at a Glasgow event where Darren was launching Hell's Heroes, the last book in the Demonata series.

Listen in to hear Darren talking about why vampires are so popular and why he loves touring, plus hear him doing the voice of Lord Loss!     

The first 3 books in the Darren Shan series were recently made into the film Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant, and this interview was done just before the film's release, so Darren had lots to say about the film and his involvement in it.
