His book Unstoppable is a heart stopping thriller about sporty 14-year-old twins Kaine and Roxy. It has been endorsed by Marcus Rashford. Dan will talk about reading, writing, the Jamie Johnson books and TV series and Unstoppable and there will be lots of time for questions, including what it’s like to interview Messi and Ronaldo
