Was Jeepers Creepers kind of inspired by this book?

The Creeper has the same twenty something year cycle and the lead character's name is Derry (though it might be spelled "Darry") so i'm wondering if Victor Salva has ever mentioned his movie ever being inspired by this book.

I do not know. I sure did like the first movie!
The first movie is a classic, but the second movie is one of the worst horror sequels I've ever seen; the characters in the sequel are sooooo unlikable that it makes the movie hard to watch. I wish the whole movie was about Ray Wise hunting The Creeper, that would have been amazing. I'm kind of curious about the third movie, nothing can be as bad part 2.
