The story explores what happens to them and how the experience changes their lives. Darren started writing when he was just But he knew he wanted to become a writer when he was five years of age.
The notions I have explored in Cirque Du Freak go back to when I was a very small child, when I watched a lot of vampire movies. They have had an enormous impact on my writing. Darren has already written nine books for the Darren Shan series and he plans to write more.
Not content with making his mark on childhood fiction, Darren has also branched out into adult fiction. The first book in the series, Ayuamarca , was published in February and two more books are planned for the series. There are certain things you have to be careful of when you are writing for children.
The Vampire's Madam - Kindle edition by L. Rosario. Download it once and read it on your Kindle device, PC, phones or tablets. Use features like bookmarks. Madam Octa has a unique and beautiful color as a spider, and can do many in order to save him, Darren is forced to become a Vampire and his apprentice.
You learn things writing for children which you can bring to the adult books, and vice versa. An adult book is usually longer, so you have to work that little bit harder. For example, when I first wrote Cirque Du Freak , the voice wavered. I wanted to write a book for teenagers but it started out as a story an eight or nine-year-old might like.
I had to work very hard in order to perfect the right tone of voice. His mother, Breda, teaches in a primary school and he gave her copies of the book to circulate among her pupils. He also gave her questionnaires for the children to fill out so he could get some feedback on what he had written. And they also told me what they would like to see in the book. Darren included the pupils of Askeaton Primary School in the dedications of the book as a thank you for the vital advice. He brought a collection of live tarantulas to the launch of Cirque Du Freak to see how people would react.
They like to try things that are a little bit dangerous. Darren believes that his childhood and upbringing has played a major role in his decision to become a writer.
Then my family moved to Ireland, to the Limerick countryside. Living in a quiet place has been very beneficial to my writing because it gives me the space to focus on my work with very few distractions. When you live in a big city there are always things to do and places to go. But he plans to stay in Limerick for the foreseeable future and continue writing. Darren has already been compared to the king of horror Stephen King.
He is delighted to be mentioned in the company of such a prestigious writer. I grew up with his books. A lot of writers and books have influenced me, especially Tolkien and David Eddings. I loved the ideas and the storytelling in those types of books. With such a hectic schedule it is difficult for Darren to find time to relax.
I watch practically anything. Despite the impressive history of Irish writers, there are very few who are currently working in this field. His first novel, Ayuamarca , an adult fantasy novel, was published last February and is a mixture of these genres. The novel follows a young gangster who is determined to make his way up through the criminal ranks by any means possible, even if it means becoming involved with a serial killer and betraying those closest to him.
The title of the book means "procession of the dead", so it promises to be a chilling thriller. The story is set in the same nameless city as Ayuamarca but is less of a fantasy novel and more of a mystery. Darren has already finished the first draft of the third novel in the series and it is planned to be published next year. No date has yet been set for the release of the movie version of Cirque Du Freak. Where did you get the inspiration for Cirque Du Freak from?
It started with my interest in vampires. I was fascinated with them since I was a child, and had a big poster of Christopher Lee famous Dracula actor on my bedroom wall when I was six years old! What sort of books or films influenced you? Those which had a big influence on me were horror and fantasy films, which I immersed myself in when growing up.
Yet, week after week, he treats her as nothing more than the proprietor of Keya House.
