ANTHONY
HOROWITZ
In conversation with Samira Ahmed
Anthony Horowitz is one of the most
prolific writers in the UK. A polymath,
he juggles writing books, TV series, films
plays and journalism. Many know him for
his bestselling teen spy series
Alex Rider.
In his new series of detective novels for
adults, Anthony places himself as a central
character, commissioned by a detective to
write a book about a complex murder he
is working on. A classic crime novel for the
modern reader,
The Word is Murder
is the
whodunnit of all whodunnits.
Anthony is responsible for writing some
of the most loved and successful TV series,
including
Foyle’s War.
Anthony’s latest
show
New Blood
premiered on BBC iPlayer
last year. He regularly writes on subjects
from politics to education for the national
press and has a travel column in
The
Telegraph
. There is much to explore with
this writer.
