A book by Derek Landy

Irishman Derek Lendy was born in 1974 in the outskirts of Dublin, where he still lives. His father is a farmer, his mother is a professor of English and literature, a college teacher. As a child, Landy stuttered quite a lot, so he was a very "bookish" child. He read fairy tales, fantasy, comics. But Derek`s favorite books were horror films - novels and short stories by James Herbert, Stephen King, Dean Koontz. In the movie, Landy is an ardent fan of Freddy Krueger and Buffy the Vampire Slayer ("I want to be a vampire!

Irishman Derek Lendy was born in 1974 in the outskirts of Dublin, where he still lives. His father is a farmer, his mother is a professor of English and literature, a college teacher. As a child, Landy stuttered quite a lot, so he was a very "bookish" child. He read fairy tales, fantasy, comics. But Derek`s favorite books were horror films - novels and short stories by James Herbert, Stephen King, Dean Koontz. In the movie, Landy is an ardent fan of Freddy Krueger and Buffy the Vampire Slayer ("I want to be a vampire! Just as cool and dark!"). After briefly studying to be an animator, Lendy returned to help his father, to the family farm, where he worked for 6 years. At the same time, Derek tried to write stories and screenplays. In the end, two of his scripts were accepted for production - thus the low-budget horror films Dead Bodies (2003) and Boy Eats Girl (2005). Derek Lendy is a black belt holder in Kenpo Karate, for several years he worked as a sensei for children (by his own admission, he dreams of making a private army of students - "Sooner or later, I will have powerful enemies, then I will call on my young thugs!") ... In the summer of 2005, Landy came to London on business. At the hotel, the name Skeleton and the image of a strange magical detective came to his mind. Landy immediately recorded the scene, then included in the fourth chapter of his debut novel, which was fully completed by the end of 2005. The novel Skeleton Trickster was released in 2007 and was a significant success - the rights to the publication were sold to more than 20 countries, including Russia and Korea (as well as most of Europe, the United States and Canada). Recently, Warner Bros. acquired the right to film adaptation of the book and the entire subsequent cycle, and Derek Lendy himself will write the script. In total, the Irish writer plans to compose 8 volumes about the adventures of his heroes.
