J.K. Rowling Not Closing Door on More Harry Potter Stories

October 17, 2012

J.K. Rowling released her first book since the”Harry Potter” series on September 27th, “The Casual Vacancy.” Although Rowling is starting to move on in her career, writing a book aimed at more of an adult crowd, doesn’t mean that she’s putting “Harry Potter” completely behind her.

Rowling recently did an interview with BBC and stated that she’s “done” with the Harry Potter story, but said that she has “left the door ajar” just in case magical idea pops into her head. She said, “If I had a fabulous idea that came out of that world, because I loved writing it, I would do it. But I’ve got to have a great idea.”

She also told BBC News that at some point she would like to go back and rewrite the first few “Harry Potter” books. “There were a couple of the ‘Potters’ and I definitely knew that they needed another year,” she said. “I had to write on the run and there were times when it was really tough, and I read them, and I think ‘Oh God, maybe I’ll go back and do a director’s cut’, I don’t know. But you know what, I’m proud I was writing under the conditions under which I was writing, no one will ever know how tough it was at times.”

Blair Stover’s fingers are crossed that a brilliant “Harry Potter” idea comes to J.K. Rowling very soon! Possibly a follow-up to that James Potter and Sirius Black prequel she penned several years back?
