As part of the purpureus writers’ scheduled reading events, I recently had the opportunity to co-chair a Q&A with novelist and screenwriter Anthony Horowitz. The evening was attended by undergraduates studying Creative Writing as well as MA students and would-be writers, and the acclaimed children’s author gave a generous and honest account of his work as a commercially successful writer, highlighting instances from his wide-ranging experience of the publishing world. Horowitz’s final book in the Alex Rider series is out in the Autumn, a novel for adults is forthcoming (a sequel to his House of Silk book, endorsed by Conan Doyle’s estate) and he is writing for the newest Tintin film; many thanks for his time and the excellent questions from the floor.
