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 PostPraise for Skulduggery Pleasant: Kingdom of the Wicked:`A real thriller ... There are so many teasers that have you on edge, but there are also plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.' Inis`[Landy]'s just got it ...His dry sense of humour, largely conveyed via Skulduggery himself, will have you quietly chuckling as you breeze through the pages.' Mybookcorner.com`I don't know how Derek Landy does it, but each of his Skulduggery Pleasant novels surpasses the one that came before, and Kingdom of the Wicked is no exception. A stunning novel from page 1 to the last word.' The Founding FieldsPraise 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
