What influenced Anthony Horowitz to write his books?

Anthony Horowitz was inspired to write by his childhood.

He grew up in a rich family and had a miserable dull life with few friends.

His father was always away on business trips which he never talked about, Horowitz tells in some interviews that the people his father was meeting was shadowy and secretive. He recalls that he once had to take a moneybag to one of his fathers contacts, he never knew why he had to do it or why he was getting the money. His mother always told horror stories to Horowitz, she was out a lot and saw new horrors in the cinemas and then retold the story to Anthony.

He was a very lonely child and he spent most of his day in his fathers library reading his books. (He was also a huge fan of the James Bond movies) This inspired him to make stories of his own.

Anthony wrote multiple children's books, but none of them became a success.

He figured that children would like to read "children's fantasies" not a grownup's words, so he sat down and thought about his childhood and let it inspire him to write the Alex Rider series which was a huge success and made him a famous children's novel writer.

When will Point Blanc come out?

Up until very recently producers were unsure if Point Blanc would be made, because despite being an accomplished and entertaining film, Stormbreaker did not 'storm' the box office. That said, author Anthony Horrowitz has reportedly produced a film script for Point Blanc. Most significantly though is that the movie is registered on revered movie database www.imdb.com as an 'In Development' project with a scheduled release date of 2008. Some people say some time in November!!!

Well apparently it didn't come out because now its July 2009! =( Now its September i don't think its coming out :( i wanted 2 see it :(.
