Horowitz and Parks awarded New Year's Honours

Curtis Brown clients Adele Parks and Anthony Horowitz have been included in the New Year’s Honour list for 2022.

Parks (pictured), author of recent Sunday Times bestsellers Just My Luck and Both of You, picks up an MBE for services to literature after a career that has seen her write twenty bestselling novels. She tweeted: "I could not feel more proud and happy to be included on the Queen’s Honours List. What a way to kick off 2022, being awarded an MBE for services to Literature. I am totally blown away! I’m currently the closest I’ve ever been to speechless!"

Horowitz, already a holder of an OBE, has been awarded a CBE for services to literature. He is the author of more than forty books, including the Alex Rider teen spy series and Sherlock Holmes titles commissioned by the Arthur Conan Doyle estate. He has also penned three James Bond books with the latest, With a Mind to Kill, publishing in May 2022. The author said his CBE was "a great surprise and a positive start to 2022", adding: "I’m very happy to represent books and writers at a time when they’ve really mattered."

Congratulations to both Adele and Anthony!
