AUTHOR OF THE WEEK July 5
(Mystery, Suspense, Crime Novelist, Screenwriter, and Television Series Author)
“My writing has always been what you call ‘narrative fiction’ in the sense that it’s got very strong plots and twists at the end.”
“Throughout history, story-telling was at the very beginning of life.”
“I fear dying in the middle of a book. It would be so annoying to write 80,000 words and not get to the end. I’m phobic about it. So when I’m writing a book I leave messages all over the house for people to know how the story ends, and then someone can finish it for me.”
“I had three brilliant English teachers at secondary school. They found the writer in me.”
Anthony Horowitz (born 1955), English novelist, screenwriter, and children’s novelist, has written more than 50 books including The Magpie Murders, The Power of Five series, the Alex Rider series, The Diamond Brothers series, and has adapted many of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot novels for TV. He is the creator and writer of Foyle’s War, Midsomer Murders, Collision, and Injustice. Also the Hawthorne and Horowitz Mysteries: The Word is Murder; The Sentence is Death; A Line to Kill. In October 2014, the Ian Fleming estate commissioned Horowitz to write a James Bond novel, Trigger Mortis, and Forever and A Day. A third Bond novel is expected to be released sometime in 2022. An underachiever at school, Horowitz started writing at the age of 8 or 9 and he instantly “knew” he would be a professional writer.
