I’m very pleased to say that I am just putting the finishing touches to a newFirst sight Jamie Johnson book!

When I was writing Final Whistle, I thought that it might be the last in the series but all your lovely messages and emails have been so fantastic and have inspired me so much that I couldn’t resist…

And, of course, we have the small matter of a World Cup being held in Brazil this summer…we couldn’t have such a big event in football and not have a Jamie Johnson book to accompany it, could we?

The book is called Skills from Brazil and it is a prequel to the rest of the JJ series – we go back to when Jamie was eleven years old and we find out some of the key events and skills that helped to turn him into the person and player he goes on to become…

I’m loving writing it and I hope you’ll really enjoy reading it!

The book will be out in May, just in time for that little football event in Brazil…

  1. Hello!
    Love all of your books and can’t wait until this one comes out!
    One question!
    In the last book, Final Whistle, you ended on Jamie attempting to score but could risk his body again, what actually happened in the ending of this book, I need to know!!!
    Thank you for all your fantastic work.

    1. Cheers George…it’s kind of for you to decide…although the next book – SKILLS FROM BRAZIL – does answer the question…

      1. Thank you for answering it, it’s been making me wonder for ages what actually happens in the end! I’m guessing the answer isn’t in plain sight in the next book though..

        Thank you so much for making my childhood so good with your books, such an inspiration.
        Jamie at the age I am now, is basically exactly the same as me, left midfield, pacey, amazing left foot, working his way up, exactly where I am now..

        1. Thank you for your comment Leon. I’m pleased you’re enjoying Skills. Have you read any of the others yet?

  2. Hi Dan! I wanted to say that I love the books, I’ve just finished reading final whistle!

    I’d love for there to be more sequels to the story, and with the way you write, you could keep the series going as long as you wanted! I really enjoy the fact you keep finding flaws and problems and keep including cliffhangers!

    I’d love to see how much further Jamie can progress!

    Thanks for taking the time to read this!

  14. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for getting my 11 year old son reading again. After the usual school reading schemes I have had great trouble getting my son reading. Your books were recommended to me because he is football mad- and EUREKA! Bought the set for Christmas and he is on the last book, he loves them. I have ordered Skills from Brazil now so please more more more !

    1. Thank you so much for you comments. I am so pleased that my books have inspired a reluctant reader to not only pick up a book, but enjoy it as well!
