With an already stellar line-up confirmed, we are delighted to confirm bestselling young adult fantasy and horror author Derek Landy as a Saturday-only Special Guest. Derek will be taking part with a Special Guest Interview, YA Panel and a signing on Saturday 24th September.
Landy burst onto the scene with his debut title, Skullduggery Pleasant, which went on to be a YA publishing phenomenon and a hugely successful nine-part series, drawing to a temporary close with 2014’s The Dying of the Light. Since then, Landy has gone on to write the equally acclaimed Demon Road trilogy, and is currently working on the highly anticipated tenth instalment to the Skullduggery Pleasant series. He is a winner of the Red House Children’s Book Award, a three time recipient of the Irish Children’s Book Award and Skullduggery Pleasant was also voted Irish Book of the Decade in 2010.
