Meeting Eoin Colfer

Meet Eoin Colfer with Me (he’s hysterically funny!)

My son and I attended the Mega Awesome Book Event which starred Rick Riordan, but Eoin Colfer emerged as the star of the day. (Ridley Pearson was a rockstar too!)

Eoin Colfer and Rick Riordan

Boy is that guy funny and charming! If I could invite just one author to dinner, I would pick him. He’d have you in stitches all night!

Rick Riordan and Mega Awesome book event

Here’s an example as he gives advice to his younger self:

Here’s why he has no futher use for Artimis Fowl and therefore must write a new series.

His new series is called The Reluctant Assassin and it sounds every bit as exciting as his Artemis Fowl series.

His books include:

The Reluctant Assassin (W.A.R.P.) by Eoin Colfer

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

Artemis Fowl The Last Guardian by Eoin Colfer

Eoin Colfer’s Legend of the Worst Boy in the World by Eoin Colfer

The Supernaturalist by Eoin Colfer

  1. Glad that you and your so had such a good time. I haven’t read anything by Eoin Colfer, including his well- known Artemis Fowl series. Don’t know why. After watching the videos, I may just add him to my list.

    Nice to know that some people still value a good sense of humor. He’s a great writer, kind of reminds me of Anthony Horowitz.

  3. He sounds like a guy I’d like! 😀

    • Hi JDaniel4’s Mom,
      I hope JDaniel4 will try some of his books when he is a little older. I think his books work for kids ages 9 and up but precicious readers would like it at around age 7 even. I don’t think content wise, it is too scary for them.
