Read scorpia by anthony horowitz online dating

I think every writer should challenge themselves – that’s half the fun of writing – and for me there’s the excitement of my adult book, a new Sherlock Holmes novel, coming out in the autumn.

It came as a huge surprise when the Conan Doyle estate not only chose me to write the new novel but gave me complete editorial freedom too.

I made it clear that I would stop writing the books when Alex turned 15. Alex might have a girlfriend called Sabina Pleasure, but I preferred to keep the relationship on Facebook rather than letting it develop, so to speak, in the flesh.

Zijn boek Bolbliksem (Stormbreaker) werd in 2006 verfilmd.

Alex Rider’s life changed forever with the silent pull of a trigger.

Fleming once described his master spy as ‘terribly silly’ and, after seven books, wrote that he was ‘… the keys creak as I type and I fear the zest may have gone’.

Doyle thought Sherlock Holmes – more of him later – got in the way of his more serious writing, particularly his historical novels, and pushed him off the Reichenbach Falls in the Swiss Alps without a second thought.

Hij schrijft voornamelijk jeugdboeken, maar ook romans voor volwassenen en scenario's voor televisie (waaronder Midsomer Murders, Agatha Christie's Poirot, Crime Traveller, Crossbow, Foyle's War en Robin of Sherwood).

Horowitz werd geboren in een Joodse familie, afkomstig uit Estland. Op zijn achtste werd hij door zijn ouders naar een streng internaat in Harrow gestuurd.

Best of all, this is a book for all those readers who are now too old for Alex Rider. Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz is published by Walker Books, £6.99, on Thursday 31 March.

Anthony Horowitz (Stanmore, 5 april 1955) is een Britse schrijver.

I would imagine it was my scripts for Foyle’s War, rather than Alex, that impressed them. On the one hand, I didn’t want to be seen to be jumping on a bandwagon.

We currently have the Robert Downey Jnr films, and Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’s brilliant modern update on BBC1. The book I have written goes very much to the heart of the originals, with the language, the settings and the plot all scrupulously tailored to the 19th century.

There is already film interest in the book (whose title I am not yet allowed to reveal).
