About Eoin Colfer

Eoin Colfer was born and raised in Wexford in the south-east of Ireland, where he still lives with his wife and children. He began writing plays at an early age and, as an adult, continued to write. Artemis Fowl, his first book featuring the now world-famous young anti-hero, was an immediate international bestseller and won several prestigious awards. It was followed by four more hugely successful Artemis Fowl adventures, as well as the highly acclaimed The Supernaturalist, The Wish List and Half Moon Investigations, plus a series of books for younger readers.

Review quote

'Praise for other books by Eoin Colfer: 'Wickedly brilliant' -- Independent (on Artemis Fowl) 'Hugely entertaining' -- Observer (on Artemis Fowl) 'A dystopian thriller that reads like The Matrix crossed with Oliver Twist'-- The Times (on The Supernaturalist) 'A headlong techno fantasy ... As ever, Colfer's story rattles along at a tremendous pace with a cast of eccentric and explosive characters' -- Guardian (on The Supernaturalist) 'Unputdownable' -- Irish Times (on Half Moon Investigations)'
