Colfer, 46, might not have turned his talents to adult fare had it not been for Irish crime writer Ken Bruen, who, five years ago, asked Colfer to write a short story for the “Dublin Noir” anthology he was editing.
"I said, ‘I think you’ve got the wrong guy. I do fairy stories,’" Colfer told Bruen, but his colleague insisted that "when you take away the leprechauns, they’re all crime stories underneath."
