For the second episode of the second season I managed to land an interview with author and screenwriter Dougie Brimson.
Dougie’s first book was Everywhere We Go, a non-fiction book about soccer in the build-up to the 1996 European Championships. Dougie decided when he started writing that he would “write for himself”. He believed that the male working class, soccer fan niche was underserved. With over a million books sold, I think Dougie has proved himself right!
Out of all my interviewees, Dougie managed to really push my interviewing skills, as we ended up going on a completely different conversation to what I had prepared for! We spoke on classism in the publishing world, how he managed to talk his way to a movie writing job, and what he plans for the future. It’s a fascinating interview, and I hope you enjoy it!
What did you think of Dougie’s interview? Did you writers learn anything useful? Did you readers find a new author you’d like to check out? Let me know in the comments below!
