One of the UK's most prolific and loved authors, Anthony Horowitz takes us through the daily routine which has lifted him to huge success!
Which works as a title. Not entirely true though. Anthony doesn't so much have a routine that he fits his writing into, it's more trying to find a time when he can tear himself away from his work. Story-telling for Anthony is a compulsion, it's work he immerses himself into.
His 'Alex Rider' series launched him to national attention in the early 2000's, with school-kids all over the world being transfixed by the heroic, reluctant teenage spy. He has also written extensively across every story-telling method available to him. Working in theatre, film, and you'll often see his name in the credits for TV shows such as 'Poirot', 'Foyle's War' and 'Midsomer Murders'.
More recently, he's moved into adult fiction, with his murder mystery and horror stories frequently filling the best-seller list. He's used his passion to tell tales with other writer's characters too. His 'Sherlock Holmes' and 'James Bond' novels being some of the only 'new' stories ratified by both the Conan-Doyle, and Ian Fleming estates.
We talk about the moment that changed the way he wrote novels forever, how he loves the process of naming his characters, and also the slightly selfish reason he returns to his old characters.
It's a good one. If you've enjoyed it, give us a subscribe and drop us a review on the iTunes Podcast Store. THANKS
