Biography

A prolific writer of children's fiction and screenwriter for British television, Anthony Horowitz was born in Stanmore Middlesex, England to a wealthy Jewish family. Fascinated with literature at an early age, Horowitz published his first of many children's novels at the age of 23. In 1983 he began work as a television screenwriter, contributing to the ITV children's anthology show "Dramarama" and writing scripts for the popular "Robin Hood" series in 1986. In 1993 his skill with mysteries landed him a job adapting the novels of Agatha Christie's beloved detective Hercule Poirot for 11 episodes of "Agatha Christie's Poirot." His 1997 BBC sci-fi series "Crime Traveller" did not perform well, but the 2002 World War II spy drama he created, "Foyle's War," became his biggest success, a triumph he shares with his wife, Jill Green, who produces the program. Horowitz has also written for film, screenwriting the 2002 mystery "The Gathering," starring Christina Ricci, as well as adapting his own youth spy novels"Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker."
