The minute she had sat down at the table that day in Wembley, he’d felt a connection that seemed to develop instantaneously between the two of them. He had wanted her ever since…
Inspired by Lee Childs and Nicolas Sparks, Tight Spiral is a fast-paced tale of romance and suspense. Written by former American Football Coach, Michael J Gill, this is the story of two people who fall in love despite the obstacles and wrongful assumptions in their path.
The novel follows Harry Smith, the first British quarterback in American college football who had everything going him: a star future, and a pretty Texan girl on his arm. But when “Prince Harry” collides with fate in a near-fatal accident, everything unravels.
Amy Carrington is a sports reporter in Leeds, England, who’d much rather report on life and fashion. But her boss has a brand new job for her covering the rise of American football in Britain that might just skyrocket her career and change her life.
When Harry emerges from his coma with no interest in football, can Amy bring him back to life and help him win the biggest game of his career?

If you could change anything about your story what would it be?
I actually did change it recently. I added Double Option which was a novella and my sequel to Tight Spiral. I felt the whole story needed to be in one book. The original stories had been professionally edited and so I didn’t have to make many changes.
