Give a brief synopsis of your book:
The Wren : , created in 2007 by Dubliners Jason Connor and Phil Roe
Hibernia. He has inherited superpowers from his parents
and now learns what it is to become a hero while trying to juggle everything
else that comes with the "Hero" territory and being a teenager.is the adventures of Jack McCormack, a 13/14 year
old boy growing up in Dubh-lynn, a city in the country of
Artos: Conor McMahon lives in the west of
a small town called Ballyvaughan. His family for many generations have
looked after the Ailwee caves and it is said that the great bear God Art had
left a talisman within the caves that one day would give a McMahon great power
when needed. That day has come, it’s Conor and another young hero now enters
Where did the idea for the books come from?
The Wren was created out of a gap in Irish Comics for a comic book that could be read by all ages. Looking for a comic book of an Irish Superhero adventure in line with Saturday morning cartoons, I couldn't find so set about creating it . As to give them more of an adventurous scope, I decided to change
Hibernia and to
Dubh-lynn. Although a lot remains the same, some things have been altered as to
accommodate the world that Jack McCormack lives in. Dublin
It is a world where the Dé Danaan have left their mark through blood ties. Some people are born with superhuman gifts that are side effects from the Sidhé (Fairyfolk/ Dé Danaan) living and marrying humans. These gifts give rise to heroes, and also villains - for not all who are gifted wish to fight for the greater good. Artos then came from wanting to expand the Wren universe as such and so hence heading west. Altough there are two one shots planned also! One set in the South and one in the North.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Yikes! Em, that is too hard a question at this stage as to be honest have always seen them as Comic book characters in their own right and maybe (wishful thinking) cartoons. Actors? I am not sure .
Ok so my tips for next big things?
Well firstly I would like to put forward Phil Roe, none of which I do would be possible without him , secondly Leeann Hamilton (Love Finn and the Fish!) and thirdly I would say Cormac Hughes as I love were his art style is heading.
