Anthony Horowitz 'looking to Lincoln for inspiration'

4th May 2010

Alex Rider author Anthony Horowitz hopes to be inspired when he visits the Lincoln Book Festival later this month.

Speaking to the Lincolnshire Echo, the writer said he is 'keen' to return to the city as he has not visited it for several years and is open to the possibility that it could spark new ideas.

'I think the reason for doing festivals like this is to see new places and get some inspiration for settings for books. You never know whether Lincoln might give me ideas for a new book,' he commented.

The author, whose works include Stormbreaker and Snakehead, told the newspaper that he hopes to find space between his two talks at the festival to roam Lincoln and soak up some of the local atmosphere.

Horowitz added that he wants to use his writing to instill a love of literature in children and claimed they have the imagination to enjoy reading in ways which adults cannot.

Other authors who will be appearing at the seventh annual Lincoln Book Festival, which runs from May 12th to the 16th, include Simon Callow, Jake Arnott and R.J. Ellory.
