Oh You Name Dropper

Over the years I've been lucky in that, not only do I get to interview other authors, but in all cases they were writers that I was a fan of  anyway.  Talk about a busman's holiday! The various interviews have been published  in Inis magazine so I've taken the opportunity to put links to them here (or at least those I could find!).

Charlie Higson: The title came about as seeing as both my youngest son and I were huge fans of his The Enemy series, I took the opportunity to ask him to sign his latest book (at that time) for my son.  Die Sicko Die was the dedication he wrote, which thrilled my son no end and, in the context of the series, was singularly appropriate.

His latest - and final - book in the series The End is out at the end of this month and we're both waiting with bated breath.

Darren Shan: readers of the blog will probably noticed I'm a big fan of Darren Shan too.  Here's the interview I did with him a few years back.

John Connolly and Jo Nesbo: this was a very interesting one as I got to ask two of my favourite crime writers the challenges and experiences of changing genre and writing for younger readers.  Their very different approaches make fascinating reading.
Trouble is I can't find any trace of the article or the issue of Inis it featured in!!  Once I do I'll post it.
