Shane Hegarty was born and raised in Skerries, Ireland, where he now lives with his wife and four children but no pets since an unfortunate incident with the family goldfish. He is a journalist with the Irish Times as well as the author of Darkmouth #1: The Legends Begin.
"Hegarty puts a fun spin on the monster-hunting trope, creating a
sympathetic, underachieving hero who nevertheless rises to the
occasion. Between the entertaining premise, the tongue-in-cheek
humor, and the frequent moments of excitement and action, there's
plenty to enjoy in this promising series opener."--Publishers
"Hegarty's debut and the first of a projected series is Ghostbusters meets Percy Jackson as written by Terry Pratchett. Readers will be hunting for the sequel in short order."--Kirkus Reviews
