Derek Landy lives near Dublin. Before writing his childrens story about a sharply-dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a little thriller in which everybody dies. As a blackbelt in Kenpo Karate, he has taught countless children how to defend themselves, in the hopes of one day building his own private munchkin army. He firmly believes that they await his call to strike against his enemies (he doesnt actually have any enemies but hes assuming theyll show up sooner or later). The reason Derek writes his own biographical blurb is so that he can finally refer to himself in the third person without looking pompous or insane.
