Derek Landy lives near Dublin. Before writing his children's story about a sharply-dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a murderous horror film. "I think my career-guidance teacher is spinning in her grave," he says, "or she would be if she were dead."Review:
Praise for Derek Landy: `Landy [has the] ability to craft an engaging story from start to finish.' Inis `Derek Landy has been something of a publishing phenomenon.' Irish Post Praise for Skulduggery Pleasant: Mortal Coil: `An exciting novel that really ups the game from the already impressive previous novels and sets a new standard of excellence for the series.' The Founding Fields `Skulduggery himself is still as funny and awesome as ever ... I found myself laughing a lot.' Fringe Magazine Praise for Skulduggery: 'Hugely enjoyable - a thrill-a-minute adventure.' Jonathan Stroud, author of the BARTIMAEUS TRILOGY 'It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun. I sincerely hope Landy revisits these characters.' Philip Ardagh, Guardian 'Skulduggery Pleasant serves up a thoroughly satisfying blend of humour, magic and adventure. Once you've met Stephanie and Skullduggery, you'll be clamouring for a sequel.' Rick Riordan, author of the PERCY JACKSON series `Landy's witty style will win him fans of all ages ... It's a good job Harry's [Potter] resigning before he's forcibly retired.' Irish Mail on Sunday `A rip-roaring adventure.' Irish Sunday Independent
