Has anyone here gotten emails from Darren? I have, and he actually answered a few of them! For those who have actually met the man, what was your experience like?

I emailed him once quite a few years ago, but he never answered. Since then, I’ve written to him about four times and he’s replied to each one of my letters.
I’ve also met him three times. He seems quite calm and patient. I remember, at a schools even a few years ago, I had my picture taken with him after he signed my books, but the girl who’d taken it didn’t have a steady hand, so it was blurry. So he offered to have another picture taken, and this time the girl was having problems with my phone. But Darren was patient the whole time, despite the huge queue behind us.And even though he gets bombarded with loads of questions from each fan, he seems to take it in his stride.

Fans from Provo, Utah that come on here may get chances to meet him when he goes over their way for The World Horror Convention at the end of April and the beginning of May.

I’ve met him twice. Both times he was much the same - calm, well presented and professional. A joy to converse with and grateful to his fans. I’ve never written to him or E-mailed him, but I have heard positive things about writing to him; and, while it may take a while, he’ll get back to you if you’ve not sent him spam.
