Author of the Jamie Johnson Series, which has been adapted for TV by the BBC and the award-winning thriller Unstoppable. Dan is best known for engaging all readers – particularly the most reluctant.

Virtual Visit Details

The session will cover Dan’s journey from reluctant reader to author and the role that his passion for football has played. Perseverance (his books were rejected for three years by publishers at the beginning of his career) and the importance of editing are key themes.

Dan is also happy to talk about interviewing Messi and Ronaldo as well as what it was like to meet both The Queen and Nelson Mandela.

The visit will be broken down into two parts: firstly, a conversation between Dan and the host, with the pupils listening, followed by answering questions from the pupils.

The price includes 8 Jamie Johnson books and 1 copy of Unstoppable for each class in the call.
