Eoin Colfer is one of Ireland’s best-loved writers. Famous world-wide for his Artemis Fowl books, his first book was published in 1998 and he has won countless awards and accolades ever since.
A former teacher, he writes up and down the age groups, from picture books (Imaginary Fred with Oliver Jeffers) to adult novels.
The Artemis Fowl series has sold over twenty-five million copies, and a Disney+ movie inspired by the books was released in May. His latest book in the Fowl Twins series, Deny All Charges follows Artemis Fowl’s younger brothers, Myles and Beckett.
Eoin was Ireland’s Children’s Laureate 2014-2016, and still wears the medal at all times, even in the bath.
