Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I consider myself a football aficionado, and I have opinions about the future of the sport. There are weaknesses in the current system for identifying talent, and particularly for those kids that don’t get a chance to participate for a variety of reasons. They may live in remote communities and don’t have the resources to support them. There is also an unconscious bias when identifying talent and selecting the best players. This drives a lack of inclusion in our sport. The story was driven by greater transparency in sport and how new technology can assist with removing unconscious bias.
What are you working on next?
I am currently in the planning stage of writing volume 2. There is much to consider from the first volume. We continue following the career of Harry Duwala and his rise to fame in professional football. Living away from home and his close family in Australia has not been easy for him. There is the drama of the 2054 FIFA World Cup and the new technologies that revolutionise the tournament. The subversive activity continues with foreign nations imitating the stolen technology, but can they make it work? It's not that simple.
