El Templo #4 (junio 2008) por Gally


The novel Half-Moon investigations has just been published in our country. The title in Spanish (something like Detective Fletcher Moon: First case), could make us think that this book is the first one of a series. Are you thinking about writting more books with this character?

I do like this character and his friends, so I may come back to him in the future. I know there will possibly be a tv series about him-so then I will need to expand on his cases.

Airman has been recently released in English. How is it going? What can you tell your Spanish readers, who will soon enjoy it, about this book?

Airman is flying out of the shops, pardon the pun. It has been a best-seller in every country so far, thank goodness. It is my favourite book of mine and a story I have wanted to write for years. It tells the tale of a young boy who invents a flying machine ten years before the Wright Brothers, and then must use this machine to escape from a terrible prison. It is written in the spirit of Robin Hood or The Three Musketeers. A real swash buckler.

You are worldly famous due to your fantasy series of Artemis Fowl, but you work on many genres: Mystery (Half Moon Investigations), Realism (Benny and Omar), even science-fiction (The Supernaturalists). Which genre do you prefer?

I am a big fan of many genres and would love to write a book in all of them. I have yet to do vampires or romance. Maybe a book about a romantic vampire? When all is said and done, I think fantasy is my favourite.

How’s a working day for you? Do yo spend many hours writing each day?

I was a teacher so I still try to do a teacher's working day. About 9 to 4, five days a week.

Your characters have a big personality –I love Butler, Foaly and Mulch, and also Lowrie, from The wish list-. Which is your favourite one? How do you build the characters? Do you see them clearly before yo start writing, or do they grow up with the story? We have seen Artemis Fowl growing up and becoming more mature in each new book. Do you imagine an adult Artemis?

My characters seem to grow themselves, which is a strange thing. It is almost as if they decide what they will do next. I know that this is only my subconscious writing the story, but it feels like all these people are alive in my brain. My favourite characters are Fletcher Moon and Artemis. I would like to do adult books about these guys some day.

Do you plan your novels before writing? Did you know that Artemis Fowl would be a series, or did the story grow more with each new book?

I write a comprehensive plan before beginning, then I never stick to it. The plan is like a safety net for me. I had planned to write 3 Artemis books, now I will write another only if the idea comes first.
