Eoin Colfer - The Rising Shadow Interview
Do your children know Artemis better than your readers do?

They could. But no, for them it’s just something their dad does. No dad is ever cool for what they do, they’re just dads. Even David Beckham.

How do you feel about the possible Artemis Fowl movie?

They bought the rights to the movie 13 years ago. So I’m a little skeptic. But what I’ve seen so far of the script and the people involved, it looks great.

Did Artemis Fowl end permanently with The Last Guardian or will you return to its world? For example, will you write independent sequels etc.?

I would like to, yes, but the Artemis Fowl series itself is over. I could see myself writing more about Holly, for example, she’d have much to give.

While writing the Artemis Fowl series, at what point did you decide how it would end?

The series begun with Artemis being bad and I knew it was to end with him being good. When I got to the point that I knew that he had to do something good and that was when I knew it was time to finish the series. I did not know it beforehand. I’m very much a go-with-the-flow –guy. Like J.K. Rowling, she had written the final chapter years before and kept it in a safe. But no, I did not know.
