Eoin Colfer began writing plays at an early age, forcing his unfortunate classmates to dress up as marauding Vikings when they would have preferred to be outdoors doing some real marauding. Browbeaten by constant encouragement from his family, Eoin continued to write as an adult. His first novel, Benny and Omar, was an instant best-seller in Ireland and his Artemis Fowl novels caused a sensation with film companies, publishers, the press and readers all over the world. Artemis was shortlisted for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year and won the Children's Book of the Year at the British Book Awards and the WHSmith Children's Book of the Year. Eoin lives in Wexford in the South East of Ireland with his family.
