Spotlight on ........................

Each month we will spolight an author and link you to some of their books. Anthony Horowitz is one of the most prolific and successful writers working in the UK. He has written over 40 books including the bestselling teen spy series Alex Rider, which he adapted into a movie that was released worldwide in 2006. The Alex Rider series is estimated to have sold 19 million copies worldwide.

His highly anticipated novel, Oblivion, the epic conclusion to the Power of Five series, was published in October 2012. 

Away from writing, he has been a patron to East Anglia Children’s Hospices and the anti-bullying charity, Kidscape, since 2008. In 2019 Anthony became a Patron to Home-Start in Suffolk, a small local family support charity working with families across the Suffolk county, as they navigate through challenging circumstances such as mental health issues, bereavement, long term or terminal illness, isolation, domestic abuse, poverty and so much more. 

Anthony was awarded an OBE for his services to literature in January 2014.
