Eoin Colfer Biography

Biography

Eoin Colfer was born on May the 14th, 1965 in Wexford, Ireland. He first started writing in the 6th Grade. His first piece of work was a class play about Norse Gods. His family were his biggest influence in becoming a writer. Eoin’s interests were always encouraged, and because his father was a history book writer and his mother was a stagewriter, so anything to do with the arts or writing was encouraged. His favourite things in the world include his Wife and Family, Heavy Metal Music like AC/DC, Apple Computers and, of course, writing. He absolutely detests stinky vegetables, like onions and garlic, queues, Jaffa-cake stealing Gremlins and doing the ironing. He is married to Jackie Colfer and has two sons; Finn (born in 1997) and Séan (born in 2003).
