    I just finished skills from Brazil I loved it but it’s left me a bit confused did Jaime go back to hawkstone permanently and what happend in the champions league game against real Madrid also will skills from Brazil be the last Jaime Johnstone book?

    • Dan Freedman September 24, 2014 at 8:00 am #

      Hi Jamal, glad you liked it!
      To answer your questions:
      – Yes JJ did go back to Hawkstone permanently
      – We still don’t know what happened against Real Madrid…
      – I’m not sure at the moment. Would you like another JJ book?…

      • Matty the geezer November 21, 2014 at 9:00 pm #

        Yes please Dan… love the JJ books… more about the Madrid game and about Hawstone wining the Champions League….

        HI DAN ITS KYLE SPINK IV’E READ ALL THE JJ BOOKS AND THEY WERE ALL FAB I NOTICED IN THE WORLD CLASS OR FINAL WHISTLE BOOK BELGIUM WAS SPELT BEGIUM

        • Dan Freedman October 22, 2015 at 1:52 pm #

          Thanks very much Kyle. Very helpful!

      • David January 26, 2016 at 8:18 pm #

        Dan freedman I want to write a book like the Jamie Johnson series but I have no ideas. The only idea I have is the final of the champions legue final and Manchester untied vs real Madrid with a twist . and its turns out its a draw and only golden goal will the devils win or real take it home….
        read and find out.

        • Dan Freedman February 1, 2016 at 12:02 pm #

          Hello David,
          It sounds to me like you already have some pretty good ideas! Have you thought about your characters and what you can do to make them interesting or are you planning to use the JJ characters? Think about what problems they could face along the way. Keep me updated.

      • Jacob January 16, 2017 at 8:34 pm #

        Dan, you are my favourite author. I love JJ. I REALLY!!!!! want a new book. When I found out there were no more books I almost cried!

        • Dan Freedman January 22, 2017 at 1:32 pm #

          So pleased that you like the books Jacob.
          Who knows JJ may make a come back one day. Keep you eyes peeled for my new book, Unstoppable, due out later in the year.

          Dan

          • Jacob February 2, 2017 at 7:36 pm #

            Thanks for taking the time to send me a reply. I cant wait to read Unstoppable. Can you give me a clue what it’s about? If you are ever in Wales it would be really exciting if you could come to my school and see the new library.

          • Dan Freedman February 26, 2017 at 1:52 pm #

            Hi Jacob,
            Have a look at this link.

            Unstoppable

    • Dan Freedman October 3, 2014 at 9:58 pm #

      Not thought about that yet … do you think he would? I hope you enjoyed the book.

  3. Kyle October 3, 2014 at 10:08 pm #

    Dan will you ever come to Ireland and if possible visit some schools in some main county’s like Dublin, Mayo, Cork, Kerry and Derry because I’d love to meet you, the only books I really enjoy are yours, JK Rowlings and Jeff Kinneys

    • Dan Freedman October 3, 2014 at 10:12 pm #

      Well you never know … I have visited Ireland before. Glad to hear you enjoy reading and rate me alongside two such great authors!

    Dan.

    Will there ever be a jj tv series and who do you think is the real life JJ at the moment

    • Dan Freedman November 16, 2014 at 11:20 pm #

      I really hope there will be. We hope to find out soon…player wise, for me JJ is like Gareth Bale (although Jamie has a few more temper issues than Gareth!)

  8. bihan November 29, 2014 at 5:57 pm #

    Hy Dan I’m writing a book to explain what happens after the accident in Real.
    From your biggest fan

    • Dan Freedman November 29, 2014 at 10:27 pm #

      Sounds great Bihan … I would love to see it when you have finished! Dan

  9. Aman hussain December 17, 2014 at 8:04 pm #

    Hi Dan me and my friends love your books and would love you to make one were Jamie goes to real Madrid and gets to play with players like Ronaldo and Benzema and gets a contract from the manager but his mum is ill will he chose football or mum and can you come to our school it is Walthamstow academy in Walthamstow thank you

    • Dan Freedman December 17, 2014 at 9:06 pm #

      A great story idea Aman! It would be good to visit you in Walthamstow … probably best to ask your teachers, and get them to email me for details.

  10. Emmanuel Solomon December 23, 2014 at 7:11 pm #

    • Dan Freedman December 27, 2014 at 2:04 pm #

      Glad you’re enjoying it! Skills from Brazil is a prequel to the series … please let me know what you think when you’ve finished it!

  11. SJ Meehan February 3, 2015 at 7:44 pm #

    Dan, the Jamie Johnson series are the best books EVER!!! Plzzzzz write another one, maybe about Hawkstone going on tour 🙂

    • Dan Freedman February 15, 2015 at 10:27 am #

      That sounds like a good idea …

      • maria March 5, 2015 at 9:28 am #

        My son would love to dress up as Jamie Johnson for world book day. What colours does he wear?
        Thank you
        Maria

        • Dan Freedman March 8, 2015 at 11:03 pm #

          I do hope he had a great day as Jamie Johnson whatever colour his kit was! Dan

  12. Jamie December 4, 2015 at 6:16 pm #

    Hi, Dan
    I would love for there to be another book in the Jamie Johnson series, they are the BEST book series in the WORLD! I am writing my own version of your books called Chris Trevan, More Than A Dream! My school has just brought the Jamie Johnson series in our libary so I am inspiring all my freinds to read them!

    • Dan Freedman December 6, 2015 at 12:03 pm #

      Hi,
      It’s great to hear that you have been inspired to write your own book! Can you tell me the story line of your book. I would love to read it when you are finished.
      Keep writing!
      Dan

  13. Joshua June 9, 2016 at 7:24 am #

    Dan r there gonna be more episodes on the tv show?

    • Dan Freedman June 11, 2016 at 3:23 pm #

      There will hopefully be more episodes in the future Joshua. What do you think of it so far?

  14. Dan June 10, 2016 at 6:54 am #

    Dan will there be other episodes as I’ve finished watching all of them

    • Dan Freedman June 11, 2016 at 3:22 pm #

      Hi Dan,
      You will have to wait a while for new episodes I’m afraid! What did you think of the first three episodes?

  15. Joshua June 13, 2016 at 4:00 pm #

    I love them!!!!!!!!!

  16. Joshua June 15, 2016 at 5:51 pm #

    Will you write another Jamie book?

    • Dan Freedman June 20, 2016 at 1:55 pm #

      I would like to Joshua as there are a lot of people out there that are asking for another!

  17. Katie June 21, 2016 at 7:29 pm #

    Hi Dan, I’ve read all of the Jamie Johnson books and watched all of the t.v series so far and I think they are both fantastic! I am also a very keen footballer so the books are a real inspiration to me, so thank you! ⚽ I was wondering if you were going to write anymore books and what about? You could do it about jack and Jamie’s children (if they have any) And also, is there going to be more tv episodes? And for how much of Jamie’s life? A movie would be great too! Thank you very much!

    • Dan Freedman June 22, 2016 at 10:46 am #

      I like the sound of a movie! That would be great. I’m really pleased that you enjoyed the books and the TV series. They are filming another series over the summer so you shouldn’t have to wait too long!

  18. Tiyas July 10, 2016 at 12:55 pm #

    Is the series over?????

    • Dan Freedman July 18, 2016 at 12:19 pm #

      I’m afraid so! Theres a new one out next year.

  19. Saaleh August 16, 2016 at 12:35 pm #

    Hey Dan. What teams are Hawkstone and Foxborough. I am guessing the two Manchester teams because like Hawkstone, Man City did quite average (and were relegated twice) until when they won the league in 2012 with the arrival of Aguero and became regular title contenders. And you’ve mentioned once that Sir Brian Robertson is based on Sir Alex Ferguson. At the end of Skills from Brazil Jamie is at Hawkstone at the age of 36. What teams do Jamie go to in between his two spells at Hawkstone. Finally I think that Xabi Negredo graduates from Barcelona’s youth academy into the first team and on Jamie’s advice they buy Bolt and the 3 amigos are reunited.

    • Saaleh August 29, 2016 at 3:13 pm #

      The 3 amigos could be like MSN. JJ at LW, Bolt at ST and Xabi Negredo at RW. Also why didnt you use real team names until World Class and real player names until Skills from Brazil. Finally, in the JJ tv Series a lot of stuff were wrong (just thought I should mention that).

      • Dan Freedman August 29, 2016 at 3:22 pm #

        I didn’t use real names because I wanted the players to be characters in their own right. What did you find wrong in the TV series Saaleh?

        • Saaleh August 30, 2016 at 12:18 pm #

          Kingfield was called Kingsmount. Hugo AKA Boggy is meant to be at the Grove. Jamie didnt have ginger hair in the series. Jamie and Jack became friends way before he joined Kingfield/Kingsmount. Jamie’s dad left before he joined the Grove, not after. Mr Marsden was Jamie’s first coach not Mr Hansard. Ollie was meant to be in Kingfield/Kingsmount. Jamie didnt live in Mike’s house. Finally, Jamie didnt go looking for his Dad until Shoot to Win.

          • Dan Freedman September 7, 2016 at 10:39 am #

            Well done for spotting the differences! Yes you are right there were changes made. I was to make the series run smoothly.

    • Dan Freedman August 29, 2016 at 3:21 pm #

      Hello Saaleh. I will leave it up to you to decide who the teams and the players remind you of! You can leave it up to your own imagination about what Jamie does between working at Hawkstone. It’s a great idea of yours bringing the ‘three amigos’ back together!

  20. Saaleh September 9, 2016 at 4:14 pm #

    Dan, is there a new book coming out soon. I Hope so! But if you don’t write a new book you’ll disappoint millions of fans.

    • Dan Freedman September 13, 2016 at 9:56 am #

      I wouldn’t want that! I will get busy writing!

      • Saaleh September 15, 2016 at 7:48 pm #

        YAS!!!

  21. jake vince November 11, 2016 at 12:56 pm #

  23. Elliot December 9, 2016 at 3:46 pm #

    Dan could you write another jj book about his foxborough youth. If you don’t want to that’s fine but I do really love your jj books.

    • Dan Freedman December 27, 2016 at 11:29 am #

      Thank you for your comments Elliot. I love your idea!

  24. Saaleh January 1, 2017 at 6:21 pm #

    Have you ever thought of making a comic series.

    • Dan Freedman January 7, 2017 at 1:21 pm #

      That is a great idea Saaleh! I will will have to speak to my publishers.
      Dan
