About the Author

English born author, Anthony Horowitz, is a novelist and screenwriter specializing in mystery and suspense genres. He was born in Stanmore, Middlesex, and his family was of the Jewish faith. He was a rather unhappy child, being overweight, and spent much of his youth reading many books from his father's library. It is no surprise that he started writing at the age of 8 or nine years old. He used books to escape the reality of being pretty sedentary, with no talent or physique for participating in sports. He was an author in the making.

Horowitz juggles his interests among writing books, TV series, films, plays and journalism. His works include over 40 books, including a teen spy thriller, the Alex Rider series. He is estimated to have sold 19 million copies worldwide. A few of his other works include: Power of Five series (including the conclusion novel, Oblivion), two Sherlock Holmes novels.......The House of Silk and Moriarty, and a new James Bond novel, Trigger Mortis.

Horowirz also created and wrote some of the most popular television series in the UK. Among the series are: Midsomer Murders, Foyle's War, Collision, Injustice, and New Blood.

Horowitz joined the Home Start group, in Suffolk, to support those working with families across the county who are facing challenges such as mental health issues, terminal illness, isolation, domestic abuse, poverty and many other problems. He has been quoted as saying.......Charity begins at Home Start.

Horowitz lives in Central London with his wife, Jill Green, (who produced his film Foyle's War), and their two sons. He considers himself a Conservative, and has specific ideas about today's political climate. He has been very critical of the social phenomenon of cancel culture and "mobbing" of figures for expressing their personal opinions. He says that people are so quick to want to cause total loss for anyone who disagrees with them. Total loss to the point of death threats, and hoping they lose their entire means to survive and care for their families. The political discourses are sadly used as reasons to hate. Horowitz is opposed to hatred of any sort.
