PUPILS at an Uxbridge school were treated to an audience with one of Britain's finest writers last week.
Bestselling author and screenwriter, Anthony Horowitz, best known for his Alex Rider novels, ITV's Foyle's War and his small-screen adaptation of Agatha Christie's Poirot, paid a visit to year seven students at Bishopshalt School, in Royal Lane.
He spoke about his successful career spanning three decades, selling millions of his books worldwide and having Hollywood come knocking.
Then he took questions from the eager pupils.
Natalie Stanton, an English teacher and head of key stage three at Bishopshalt, said: "The children really got involved.
"All of their hands were up, and a lot of them had brought their own books in to be signed."
