"It's pronounced 'Owen', so stop making that noise like a car wooshing past you at the Grand Prix."Eoin Colfer (born 14 May 1965) is an Irish author, most famous for his Artemis Fowl books. A very capable author, he has been compared to J. K. Rowling, and like the Harry Potter books, his Artemis Fowl series has been used to benchmark and compare other authors.And he's from Ireland (specifically, Wexford), hence the Irish spelling of his name.
Colfer's works include, but are not limited to:
- And Another Thing...
- Artemis Fowl
- Half Moon Investigations
- The Supernaturalist
- The Wish List
Tropes of which Eoin Colfer is found guilty:
- Author Tract: Environmentalism is very important to him, thus his driving it into reader's skulls in every book he writes.
- Irish/Celtic pride.
- Mythology Gag: Described in more detail under that page.
