    About "Dean Vincent Carter"

    1. Dean Vincent Carter

      I was born in July, 1976 in the West Midlands and spent the first six years of my life in Bewdley near Kidderminster, before moving to Tenbury Wells, Shropshire where many members of my family still live At around thirteen years of age I spent one bored Summer afternoon sitting in the back garden of a restaurant where my mother worked, reading a book my aunt had ordered by mistake from a book club Stephen King s Misery, wasn t exactly her cup of tea, but it was, as I was soon to find out, mine I devoured the novel and found within its pages the inspiration to write my own stories The first, Revenge, was very much a tentative footstep in the general direction of storytelling, i.e it s not exactly my finest piece of work The story lasted only six pages, luckily was very Misery derivative, and than a little contrived and predictable But we all have to start somewhere, and there was as good a place as any During my last few years of high school I tried a few short stories, then attempted a book, Carnival, which eventually ended up as a large short story, possibly a novella, about a travelling carnival of genetically modified animals and freaks I still have a copy of it, typed out on an old Olivetti typewriter given to me by an uncle Even now the smell of typewriters a heady mix of ink and metal brings back memories Personal Computers will always be my weapon of choice when it comes to word processing, but they have none of the excitement, the romance, the immediacy of typewriters Like Revenge, Carnival hasn t really stood the test of time, but I was young At least, that s my excuse and I m sticking to it Since 1991 I ve written pretty much constantly Through my college years in Worcester 1992 95 , my university years 1995 98 and the years since, I ve found it difficult to leave a keyboard alone The Hand of the Devil began as a short story entitled Epicure in the Terrible, which had a length of about eleven thousand words The two stories are very similar in tone, but with notable differences In the short story the main character is shipwrecked on the island after accidentally murdering a sailor, and is little than food for the Ganges Red Mather is present, though he has none of the depth he has in the book, and the ending of the short story is left open unlike the novel.In 1999 I spent six months working as a temp for Transworld Publishers in Ealing, London I worked in the post room, and found the company, and indeed the industry, very much to my liking I had ambitions back then to eventually write a book and submit it, but I had no idea of what was to come In fact it would be four years before I had my lucky break I returned to Shropshire for a couple of years and worked for Hammicks Bookshop in Worcester, before being offered a permanent job back at Transworld, an opportunity I jumped at So in 2002 I returned to London, having already begun adapting Epicure in the Terrible into a book, and a year down the line at a Transworld Random House Children s Books Christmas party I happened to sit at the same table as the wonderful, talented, and highly respected editor, Charlie Sheppard A colleague and I were lingering at the bar, waiting for our drinks, and because of this ended up grabbing the last available table as people sat down to eat A few other people joined us, including Charlie, and it soon became clear to her that I was the Dean Carter who had been sending silly emails around the company She asked if I d written anything And the rest is history.The Bookseller Email has been in existence for over three years now, and began at the behest of my boss, to inform many members of staff that the trade magazine The Boookseller had arrived For some reason, possibly because of general boredom and a writer s irrepressible urge to make anything written interesting, whether it be a letter, email or greetings card message

    1. As much as I liked this author's other book, I couldn't say the same thing about this book. The whole concept of the werewolf or wulver, is pretty straight forward. The background story of how the whole werewolf prodigy started was just not interesting. It was rather blunt and a little mundane. I really felt the Haller was not a very cunning wulver, he was clumsy and he made alot of mistakes. Which is a good thing if he is haunting you. I personally think the whole scene in the abandon old theat [...]


    2. This book will forever stay in my mind as one of the most satisfying books on my shelf.I'm usually not a fan of faster paced books, but the pacing of this one suited it perfectly. It was nicely structured from start to finish.Being as short as it was, there wasn't a lot of time for getting familiar with the characters, but I still felt I got to know them enough to enjoy them.It's hard to find good books with werewolves and the like, so take this one in.


    3. I thought this book was very detailed and quite scary. Loved the use of description and the twist at the end. This book was by-far one of the best books I have ever read as I enjoyed reading it and thought there was more to it than just a werewolf. I also like Dean Vincent Carter's note at the end about Wolves. I am a lover of wolves and thought that note was true as wolves are misunderstood.


    4. A well paced and exciting story. I liked the little nods to the American Werewolf In London film, with the action on the London Underground and then in Piccadilly Circus. I couldn't help but feel sorry for Haller at the end of the book. And what a surprising twist to the tale.


    5. i liked this book it was dark and mysterious, not with you usual full moon werewolf either and the end of the book was unexpected.


    6. This book was a very easy and enjoyable read. I whizzed through this in one day.Its quite a teenie boppie kind of book (written in same kind of form as Twilight saga).



    7. im already interested in the book! :)got to chapter two and it was so confusing, it was like a different story from what i read before !BORRRRIIIINNNNGGG !


    8. I started this but gave up around page 55. I was getting bored and it wasn't for me and not what I was expecting.
