Are you looking for an interactive author event for your school, library or festival?

Book me for an event full of football stories, the magic of books and the joy of coming up with stories – you might even get a chance to take penalties against me. With each event, I aim to show even the most reluctant readers another side to reading and writing. To find out more, send me your questions using the contact form or email me


I am currently taking bookings for festivals and school events across the UK. Email me with what you have in mind and I'll get back to you, promptly.

I am also available through the Scottish Book Trust's incredible Live Literature programme. Take a look at my Live Literature profile for more information.

Danny Scott performs a reading from Calum's New Team

"A visit from Danny Scott is fun and energetic!

Danny gets the balance just right with a good mix of listening and practical activities for the kids.

He talks about his books, why he started writing and reads an extract. It's certainly the first time I've witnessed someone read a chapter and do some 'fancy footwork' too!

Everyone, both children and teachers, raved about his visit and we're looking forward to having him back in South Ayrshire Libraries." Ailsa McInnes, Children's Services Librarian, South Ayrshire Council

"Pupils from Pilrig Park Special School were treated to an engrossing talk from children’s author Danny Scott. Danny talked of his love of football and how it inspired him to write his Scotland’s Stars football series.  All of our children have additional learning support needs so concentration can be an issue but  they were engrossed. Danny always involves his audience whether by questions or by team challenges. The pupils loved it. Soon they were roaring in delight at some of the antics of Danny and fellow pupils.


The stories in the books are fab with superb illustrations. Danny signed books for pupils after the talk. It was fantastic to have an author in school, encourage reading and have an opportunity for  pupils to ask questions on stories and writing." Jill Hale, Pilrig Park Special School
