When I told my wife that my first novel, Offside! is going to be about a fictional footballer, her response was ‘Again?’
That TV drama was Dream Team,the story of a fictional football team called Harchester United and its players and staff. It ran for 10 seasons on Sky 1 and launched the careers of a few familiar faces… Alison King (Coronation Street), Rob Kazinsky (Eastenders) and Ricky Whittle (Hollyoaks). I only watched 9 seasons though because by season 9, the story lines were getting ridiculously far-fetched. Mis-fortune and bad luck followed Harchester United like a bad smell.
And look out for a 'Meet the Author' post with Jamie very soon, where I'm sure we'll find out more about him, and his writing. Watch this space...
