THE ZOMBIES ARE HERE!
We went to see Darren Shan talk about his new series of books called ZOM-B. He confessed that he wasn’t originally going to put zombies in his book as he mainly wanted to write a political novel about racism, but he decided to throw them in to spice things up.
Commenting on his book ‘Cirque du Freak’ being made into a film he said he never really got involved with adaptations from book to a film.
When asked what his main inspiration was he said, “My mum – I know it sounds corny”.
We thought that it was well presented and when he read extracts from his books he made the whole audience fall silent and listen intently, and we found out that Darren is going to be a father, so best of luck to him!
