Artemis Fowl author to publish adult novel

14th June 2010

Eoin Colfer, the author of the successful Artemis Fowl series, has been working on a new adult novel.

The writer, who is best known for his children's books, took his first steps into the world of adult fiction in 2008 when he was commissioned to write And Another Thing..., the sixth instalment in The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, and has now produced his first independent adult novel.

Plugged, which is due for publication in 2011, is a 'noir crime-thriller' set in New York and New Jersey, according to a report from the Bookseller.

Speaking to the news provider, Marion Donaldson of Headline, who bought the book's British Commonwealth rights, said it follows an Irishman who gets 'embroiled in things outside of the law'.

'Obviously, this is intended for the adult market - there is a certain amount of violence in it - but you can still hear his voice in it,' she added.

Last month, Colfer, whose children's books also include The Wish List and Benny and Babe, staged his first foray into the world of musical theatre with The Lords of Love.

The play, which was scripted by Colfer and features music composed by Cyril Murphy and Liam Bates, follows two ageing singers who made it big decades ago, only to see their relationship torn apart by a woman.
