Jon Colfer (English Eoin Colfer) Irish writer, was born in Wexford on May 14, 1965, in the large family of an actress and history teacher. The family had five children, Yon was the second child. I started composing at school. Young Colfer, who studied in elementary school in his father`s class, from childhood represented the profession of a teacher as a fun and creative one and dreamed of following in the footsteps of Colfer Sr. The writer loves to remember how his father, as punishment for mistakes and bad behavior, shot his students with a water pistol loaded with water from an aquarium. After graduating from teacher`s college in Dublin, since 1986 he taught in the elementary grades of his hometown, continuing to compose at night. For several years he lived and worked in Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Italy. Back home, Colfer wrote the adventure story "Benny and Omar" about two friends - Irish and Tunisian boys, which was published in 1998 and became an international bestseller (translated into 7 languages). Its sequel, Benny and the Kid, was released in 1999 and was nominated for the Book of the Year of Ireland, and the children`s novel Four Wishes, recently translated into Russian, won the award in 2001.

And then it was time for Artemis Fowle - a young, gifted, daring criminal. According to Colfer himself, the book is in many ways a social satire. Jon Colfer laughs at the society of consumption and success by all means. Jon Colfer`s novels are characterized by a bright, gripping plot, sparkling humor and images from Irish folklore, which Colfer knows and loves very, very much. Here is what Colfer himself says: “We have been taught mythology since the age of four. Therefore, a person develops a certain way of thinking that allows him to write fairy tales about elves and goblins. Ireland is an integral part of all my books.

" Probably soon there was also a film adaptation of one of the novels of Jon Colfer.  Author`s Wikipedia page
