Monstrous Devices and its thrilling new sequel, The Shadow Arts, are page-turning, Indiana Jones-style adventures about a boy, his grandfather, and an antique toy robot that holds the key to a great and deadly secret –– not to mention a sinister gang of assassins (both human and mechanical) who will stop at nothing to get their hands on the old clockwork toy.
Join Damien as he reveals the journey that led to him writing Monstrous Devices; from spooky old wind-up toys, to exploring secret corners of Paris and Prague, the settings for his characters’ desperate dash through Europe. His workshop will cover such areas as where to find inspiration for writing, imaginative travel and finding the freedom to invent things in fiction – in this case a legion of lethal miniature robots.
