Author Interview: Paul Stant

Title of Book: Stop Mark Robins

A short description of book:

My books mix English football with time travel giving the reader a rollercoaster adventure as the 2 genres interact. As the trilogy evolves an epic romantic twist will grow to add to the mix, the football side will touch on different era's & involve iconic moments of historical football importance such as Mark Robins, Sergio Aguero's league winning wondergoal & Liverpool winning in Istanbul. All these are placed into a time travel adventure in my trilogy.

What inspired you to write? And what was the inspiration for this book?

It was the death of my Father in 2010, that provided me with the inspiration to write down this story. wanted to produce something in my life to act as a tribute to his memory & I had this very strong creative idea that needed to be put into print as it felt so compellingly interesting, it felt wasted just being in my head, so I had to act especially as I wanted to try & find some fulfillment in my life.

Early morning were the best time to capitalize on the thoughts I captured in my dreams. It was the most productive time.
