Eoin Colfer was born and raised in the south-east of Ireland. Artemis Fowl, his first book featuring the young anti-hero, was an immediate international bestseller and won several prestigious awards. It was followed by The Arctic Incident, The Eternity Code, The Opal Deception and The Lost Colony. Nearly 7 million Puffin English-language copies of the Artemis Fowl titles have been sold worldwide so-far.
