J. K. Rowling says she'd need a 'fabulous idea' to go back to the world of Harry Potter.
If you’re among those mourning the imminent release of J.K. Rowling’s new adult book because it is not another Harry Potter story, Potterphiles, take heart: Rowling plans to return to writing for young adults – and she hasn’t ruled out a return to Hogwarts.
That’s right, the author behind the seven-novel Potter saga whose first adult novel, “Casual Vacancy” will be released Thursday, told the press she’s eager to get back to young adult books.
“I think it very likely that the next thing I publish will be for kids,” she told BBC News. “I have a children’s book that I really like. It’s for slightly younger children than the Potter books.”
Though she seemed to close the door on more Potter books, however, she didn’t shut it completely.
