Anthony Horowitz: shedworker

Writer Anthony Horowitz, best know for his Alex Rider children's spy series of books, is also a shedworker. According to his website, he writes in a comfortable shed in his garden for up to ten hours per day. He's even written, briefly, about shedworking for The New Statesman. Here's what he said:
"Kids' films are made by cocaine addicts, former hairdressers, loud-mouthed vulgarians and Harvey Weinstein. Children's authors, by contrast, are dedicated and kindly, still given to working in sheds at the bottom of their gardens."
