Darren Shan was born in 1972 in London. At the age of 6 he moved with his parents and younger brother, to Limerick, Ireland, where he has lived ever since. Darren saw first literary success at age 15, as a runner-up in a television script-writing competition with a dark comedy titled A Day in the Morgue. He was 17 when he finished his first novel. Although it was never published, he found himself focusing more on novels than on short stories.
In January 2000, Darren's first children's book, Cirque Cu Freak was published. The first book in a series titled The Saga of Darren Shan (or Cirque Cu Freak, as it's known in America, received rave reviews. His books have been children's bestsellers in America, Britain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway and other countries. In addition to his children's books he writes for adults as well and has had several adult books published including Procession of the Dead, Hell's Horizon, and City of the Snakes. Darren Shan spends most of his time in Limerick, Ireland.
Darren Shan is just an ordinary schoolboy who loves to ride bikes and hang out with his three best friends. Then one day Darren and his friends stumble across an invitation to visit the Cirque Du Freak, a strange and mysterious freak show. Almost as if by destiny, Darren wins a ticket and what follows is his horrifying descent into the dark and bloody world of vampires.
This is Darren's story.
