I came across this clip from the BBC in which the incredible writer Anthony Horowitz gives his top 5 tips for entering short story competitions. I think his advice could be applied to all writing! Anthony Horowitz has to be one of the most prolific writers of recent times. I have long been hooked on his Poirot and Foyle's War TV writing as well as his Alex Rider series for young people. His Diamond Brothers series is the only other writing I have come across that ties in themes from the gangster movies of the 1930s with modern day life. I wonder what he would think of Bella Street and her noir adventures! Check out his website here.

    Clare lived for many years on a street in Manhattan just like the street where Bella lives. She now lives on a high cliff next to a lighthouse in Australia but luckily doesn't have to walk too far to buy bagels.
