Anthony Horowitz

Biography

Date of birth: 05 April 1955

Anthony Horowitz is probably best known as the writer and creator of the 1997 BBC television series Crime Traveller starring Michael French and Chloe Annett. But it was in 2000 that the Horowitz phenomenon really exploded, with his creation of Alex Rider, the reluctant teenage superspy.

Anthony enjoys parallel success as an award-winning screenwriter. He is the writer/creator behind Midsomer Murders and the BAFTA award-winning Foyle's War. 2009 saw Anthony's five-part drama, Collision, hit ITV1's prime-time schedules. Anthony is a regular guest critic on BBC TV's Newsnight Review and writes journalism on a wide range of issues for a variety of national newspapers.

After being commissioned by the Conan Doyle estate, Anthony wrote an official entry in the Sherlock Holmes series, The House of Silk.

Book and writing awards

Red House Children's Book Award 2003 (Skeleton Key), British Book Awards Children's Book of the Year 2006 (Ark Angel).
