He qualified as a primary teacher in 1986. He began teaching in a local primary school by day but continued to write at night. Eoin rapidly became involved in the local amateur drama group starring in, directing and later writing many award winning productions. His monster best seller Artemis Fowl was published in 2001.

  • Delightfully heartwarming.

    Imaginary Fred is a hardcover book for young readers by British author, Eoin Colfer. It is filled with wonderfully evocative illustrations by Oliver Jeffers. Imaginary Fred is the one who appears when a lonely child wishes hard enough for a friend, if all the conditions are right. And Fred loves being there for the forlorn boy or girl who needs him, knowing that when they find a real friend in the real world, he will begin to fade away. When Sam wishes for a friend, and Fred appears, he expects their friendship to follow the usual course. But this time, when Sam finds a real-life friend, something different happens. Delightfully heartwarming.
