Anthony Horowitz jpgProlific British author Anthony Horowitz's series for children and teenagers The Power of Five, Alex Rider and The Diamond Brothers, have been international hits.

He has also written for many successful television series, including Midsomer Murders and is the creator and writer of Foyles War.

He talks to Kathryn Ryan about his upper class upbringing - being raised by nannies, and being sent to boarding school at the age of eight, an experience he describes as brutal.
