Guardian Unlimited | The Guardian | Author of the month: Eoin Colfer

Dina Rabinovitch's author of the month in ysterday's Guardian was Eoin Colfer:

He has it down to a routine - four months away from the family, six months at home, two months all together on holiday. "I met Terry Pratchett, a big hero of mine, at some awards ceremony. I ran out after him, thinking, 'Oh my God, this is such stalker behaviour', and I said, 'Excuse me Mr Pratchett', and I explained who I was, and he said, 'I've heard about you - you don't like to tour'.

"And he said: 'In the early 1980s there were four, five big sci-fi writers that came out of the UK and made it big; there's only two of us left now, because we toured.' He said, 'You have to tour, you have to meet your public.' And then he swept away, and I was looking after his limo, calling, 'OK, Mr Pratchett, I'll tour.' "
